So this morning I woke up early and hauled *** out to Chaplin CT. To the shop of street diesel performance. Sean and Scott are real good guys. I have modified many cars before. I have had experiences on both sides of the spectrum in the tuning industry. Most tuners are bs artists and professional scam artists. I have met few stand up guys in the industry and, these guys are definitely one of them. Everything went as planned. I arrived promptly at seven am. And Sean let the truck cool down for a few mins then went right to work. He installed the following. Afe drop in filter, street diesels egr block off plate kit with pyro to read egts. I opted to go with Sean's custom dpf delete pipe with muffler. I decided to go with the spartan dash daq as it has some nice features and I was told its the most undetectable tuner. Since it returns the stock file exactly as the truck was before the tune. Plus, drew tech writes the factory programming for ford. I also don't feel comfortable with changing maps on the fly. I am currently running spartan 120 tune. So far the truck hasn't picked up any of the bad habits people speak of with the war hammer tune. However I also was nice to it on the way home. I figured since the tranny has adaptive learning it would shift the way I broke the truck in with the tune. So I was nice to it and so far truck shifts good. Smooth when not under load and firm when you get on it. I left there two hours later after hanging out bsing and checking out Sean's collection of bad *** fords. I think when I left he had to wipe all the drool off his his fleet of bad *** powerstrokes. If anyone in the tristate area needs anything. I am highly endorsing street diesel performance. I immediately felt like I was amongst friends. Looking forward to having SDP set me up with a icon lift kit. Truck runs much cooler now too. These things really are stupid fast for hd trucks. Oh and I reset my mpg meter in Sean's driveway for the way home and I averaged 21mpg on the highway, on the way home. I like seans custom dpf delete with the muffler. My truck is still pretty quiet and doesn't hiss nearly as much as the straight piped dpf delete. I may do the exhaust with a 4" filter back if I am feeling brazen about being deleted. However for now I wanted stealthiness and I wanted it to be relatively easy for me to put the truck back to stock if need be. I think SDP helped me accomplish everything I wanted so far with this truck.
