New to PowerStrokes

Hi forgive me for my ignorance. I have been out of a diesel truck for a few years now. I had a 06 cummins and it was good (the motor only), but the truck sucked, small interior, falling apart, etc. Got bored and bought an STi, modded that it to a 10 second daily driver and got bored and missed a truck. Long story short, I just bought a used 2011 F250 with a 6.7 Powerstroke, I absolutely love the truck. I promised myself I would not get bored and plan to keep it till I buy another Ford.

Right now the computer is telling me I am getting roughly 16.9 mpg, I want to get more. I know it's not a prius but what mods would increase that and get me a little more power and the sweet diesel/turbo sound without throwing CEL's and without burning a hole in my pocket.


I am using the truck to commute now, I do not tow anything but will be doing some light towing in the future. I am in NJ, getting the truck inspected this week but would like something that is bolt on in order to pass inspection again.

Any suggestions or things I should watch out for would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Ill give you a bump. Guessing a tuner and deleting the emissions may give you a little better fuel economy, but ill let the 6.7 guys help ya out

You can always start off with an S&B intake.... im not sure if you are wanting to do exhaust, deletes, and tuners, but you can get an S&B intake for cheap and you will see some mileage out of that

Thanks for the welcome and replys. Was looking at doing exhaust. I would guess I would need some kind of tuning to not trigger a CEL. Also any benefit of doing the deletes? What exhaust is recommended that won't drone on the highway? Thanks again, been reading the forums at work.

I like afe cai's. flo pro is great exhaust, they use band clamps instead of the u bolts that everybody else uses- which crimps/ bends the pipes.

If you plan on keeping the truck and want longevity and realibility, then delete the egr and dpf (emissions system). If your dealer isnt cool with having a programmer and being deleted emissions this could ruin your chance of having any warranty work done.

Idk if spartan is compatible with the 6.7's but the h&s mini maxx is- they're both great tuners but I prefer h&s.

Edit: doing the deletes will keep your egt's lower, along with a 4" or 5" exhaust and Downpipe. Egt's spike during Regens. Your engine is less stressed with the emissions equipment removed and your intake won't be getting soot put back into it. And your mpg will increase.

Oh I forgot to add- these trucks are a totally different beast tuned and deleted!! My dealer is cool with deletes and a programmer, so I've had warranty work covered by EasyCare (aftermarket warranty company owned by ford).

Hopefully some 6.7 guys will chime in with more helpful info as I'm a 6.4 guy

I would suggest doing the deletes as others have said.

But being in NJ, depending on what weight you register the truck, you may be exempt from inspection, "Diesel-fueled motor vehicles having a GVWR of 10,000 pounds or more that are required to be inspected by the owner or lessee"
State of New Jersey - Motor Vehicle Commission

Good luck with the truck
