Tuner for DPF ON?

I am looking for a tuner for my 6.7 that still has the EGR & DPF present. I have a check engine light on for high MAS reading (from my s&b intake) and the local dealer told me to get a tuner I also have my TPMS light on because I went with Nitto Terra Grappler's that are only rated to 65psi.

I am not looking for huge power gains. I would rather increase my MPG's, get rid of the CEL & TPMS lights. I know that H&S is the top choice, but if there is a "hand held" device that will take care of my needs for less $ I'd go for it. Thanks in advance. Also, I did search this topic.

A tuner will not do much if anything for mileage if you keep the emission stuff.

I am going to have to recommend the ever popular H&S. I haven't looked at the price of the street tuners lately but I still think they are worth the money. I had to do a lot of research before I bought my H&S (race) tuner. You always see commercials/ads for Bully Dog, Banks, Hypertech, etc., and although I have never used one if them, I really don't think I would buy/use one. In the research that I did most of what I have read were negative reviews and comments from users of the big name brands. I personally wouldn't trust my truck to run on one because it really seemed like all you were paying for was that ad to run in a diesel magazine. Now remember this is pure speculation since I personally haven't tried anyone but H&S, but I'm sure many other forum members have and I hope they can give you their opinion as well. But with the H&S you truly get what you pay for, it doesn't seen that there are not too many unsatisfied users if their product.

Sorry for the long post but you certainly owe it to yourself, (and your expensive truck), to find the best product that will fit your needs. Hope we can help you decide! H&S has my vote!

Wow thanks for that great response! I think I can get the base H&S street for ~$600. Do you know if they can control the tpms? Truthfully, I am really surprised that a good engine/trans tune is that hard and company's just can flash the ECU (like I am used to in the EVO world).

They do control/disable the tpms module. I actually just read one of their techs post that on another thread. They can also correct the tires size up to 34". But definitely check out their site to verify as well.
