Deleted now...

I've been running the H&S since December, and I'm going to be perfectly honest, was not that impressed on just tune alone. Fuel mileage was much worse, throttle response was better, the truck ran better and smoother, but I didn't really think it ran 1200 dollars worth better.
Fast forward to yesterday. It was half way decent out, so I put my delete pipe on. Took about 2 hours by myself, well, had plenty of help from my 2 yo and 5 yo!! A lift woulda been nice too, but oh well.
I CANNOT believe the difference now!! The truck runs like it should imo after dropping 1500 on tune, intake, pipes!! Haven't driven enough to test mileage gains yet, but I was amazed by how differently the truck runs by doing the delete. Not hard to believe tho after you get that 200 lb piece of **** emissions pipe outta there tho!! To Anyone on the fence, do it!!

So did you just do the delete pipe then and running the back half of the factory exhaust on it still?

I have H&S, that i bought in Dec with unlock, and 5inch exhaust just sitting in my garage. Been debating on wheather or not to install it all? Only have 20000 on my truck, build date is 6/10, my concern is the turbo issues with that build date. I don't want to install everything and end up taking it all back off for the warrnty if the turbo fails.

It really depends on the dealer. They can deny you warranty coverage for running a tuner. It say so in the Warranty booklet in your owners manual, under "Whats not covered". Its really up to the dealer, but I have been told that they have to prove the Tuner caused the failure.

Its really a "GREY" area.

Yep, just did the delete pipe and kept the factory tail pipe. The sound from the inside is slightly louder, but not by much at all. Turbo spool is much more noticeable as well. I let my brother drive down the road, and to hear from outside, it sounds great. Sounds about the same as my buddies straight piped 6.0.

And yes, ran the DPF present tune for two months which was not worth it imho. Actually, I ran untuned most of the time due to fuel mileage.

All of the 6.7 engines have crappy turbos. Even the 2012 trucks are still having turbos fail and based on how many newer trucks have had turbos fail, I'd say they are NO better than the turbos on the 2011 trucks.

Going to delete this weekend, still have 40,000 on my powertrain warranty, so if my turbo blows will buy a aftermarket one worst case return back to stock and see if ford will replace it. The kit is burning a whole in my garage, just sitting there doing nothing.

I have a Mini Max Combo also just sitting around. I have the 100k Mile warranty FREE from my dealer through a promotion. I only have 2500 miles on mine. LOL, gonna wait until about 10k to delete. Gotta pay to play.

I'm in the same boat as you. Tuner and unlock code sitting in the closet. With 32k on the truck (it's a '12) the turbo is what concerns me. I have a buddy with a '11 deleted with a mini max blow a turbo. Cost him 6k to replace. I relise the whole grey area and "have to prove it" thing. But it's to easy for them to just say no.
