Delete or not to delete?

Okay guys this might be a worn out topic but Im so caught in the middle on this one. I want to delete to help out with mileage and prolong engine life. But don't want to cause anymore strain by bumping hp so I was going to just run it on stock. Also with this epa junk going on i don't want to delete it then have to put it back on. So I'm looking for some honest answers here on what everyone thinks.
Thanks

I tuned and deleted mine, and boy was it worth it!!! I never got more than 17 mpg before, now I've seen 27 once (NOT the norm btw). 20 mpg is about the average now when I'm out on the highway doing about 70 mph. Power is much better, it smells like a diesel now and I like that, and my oil stays much cleaner.

How many miles did you have when you decided to delete? And dang I'd be happy to see 17 lol what gearing do you have?

Re: Delete or not to delete?

I deleted for one week before going back to stock. After getting used to not smelling diesel on these new trucks, the new diesel smell from being deleted was too much for me. I was also freaked about warranty.

I did a delete pipe and i will tell you that my experience was a little louder at idle and under normal operation and I had a slight vibration/drone at 35-45.

The mileage increase was better, you could HEAR the turbo and the added power is crazy, but I like the taste of clean air and to think I'm doing my part to keep particulate matter out of the air by keeping the emissions stuff on.

Good luck!

I don't think the diesel smell will get me. I was used to driving a dodge p pumped 24v before this lol. But how bad was the drone and what size exhaust were you running?

Stock exhaust except for the flo pro delete pipe. Drone was only bad around 35-45, but it was just like an annoying hum. Not THAT bad, but when you were used to how quiet these trucks are stock, its a noticeable difference imo.
