Newb exhaust upgrade info?

Had my diesel here since 2010 (First one by the way(2010 f-250)) and now I'm looking to upgrade a little. Naturally I have some questions as I'm not as knowledgeable as many on here. First I'm looking at doing headers and exhaust. I've seen some kits which state they will delete the regen and I'm not sure if that will screw up emissions (which I will have to pass as this is somewhat of a daily driver). That being said I was curious on what brands/kits have been used and what is wildly known to be of the better quality. I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with 5" seeing how I'd like to have the deeper sound and knowing later I will upgrade other things to have more hp. I also do tow from time to time but usually not heavy loads. I'm also curios to know once headers and exhaust are installed if I should also do new air intake. I've read that some state stock is just as good and is not necessarily needed. I'm also considering chipping but not sure due to the fact that I've heard if you plan on keeping the truck for a long time one would not like to do that, but that will be a discussion for another time seeing how my pockets aren't quite that deep. But the thoughts of others is much welcomed.

Well you would have to do a tuner if you want to do a dpf delete on a 2010. And it will not pass emissions.

Well that kinda sucks. It seems this whole dpf thing seems to cause more issues than its worth. So I'm guessing in my travels I need to make sure I find a set up which keeps the dpf then. Anyone have any thoughts on a good set up?

H&S all the way! Well worth the dollars, even though be running dpf on tunes they're still the best. Tuning and customer service like no other.
Ps:::: you posted this in the 6.7 forum, not the 6.4!

This statement isn't entirely true...there are several states/counties where emissions are not tested for non-commercial diesel trucks and it is only the safety inspection in those cases it wouldn't matter if it passed or not.

True, but still is against the law...federal law to tamper with emission components
