6.7 Performance Upgrade Suggestions

Hello Everyone,

Still somewhat new to the forum, been lurking around for a while though. I have a 2012 F250 that I have mildly upgraded. So far I have installed a 5" Straight Pipe w/ DPF Delete, S&B Intake, and a H&S Black Maxx Tuner. I want to upgrade the truck more, but I'm not really knowledgeable about these new diesels. So that's why I came here, haha! Not really wanting to do any major upgrades, but I want to squeeze a lil more power and mpg out of this engine. I use my truck to haul all the time, so I don't want to do anything that would hurt the reliability of the truck either. If y'all could give me some engine and suspension modifications would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

-Michael

Ifn you are already deleted and tuned (assume H&S) then SPE tunes are about all you can do more that's 'small'.

Next up is more air and fuel.

There's a several companies shipping turbos with several more in the works...
H&S and Industrial Injection are doing fuel.

fuel is a couple grand and air is in the $4k+ range
But IMHO if you aren't putting rods in you are going to be running yours on the ragged edge.
Rods are about $6k w/ labor.

There's a bunch of guys testing various turbo mfgr kits now, some guys have even done the rods.

Everything is kind of 'coming to market' right now.

IMHO, 6 months from now you'll be able to drop your truck off at one of these vendors and for $15-20k get a turnkey 1000rwhp and 2000ftlbs of tq.

I'm going to sit back and watch for now.

Yeah, that's what I figured. I might just wait and do something big down the road. Just going to work on suspension and looks for now. Any other mods you might consider like upgrading the intercooler pipes, etc. Just looking for minor mods that might not boost performance, but will boost reliability. I'm also going to upgrade the rear diff cover and add a rear sway bar.

Has everyone here basically said F*** the warranty & F*** the EPA Laws? My new 6.7 has a little over 1k miles on it, but in the end I want to do whats best for the engine and fuel economy. I haven't been able to pull the trigger on what I should do performance wise due to warranty and legality issues. I tuned my 07 F250 and was pleased with the results, but I'm trying to do the smart thing with my '13 F250 and I still haven't decided what that smart thing is! Haha. Will someone convince me that I'm better off deleting and tuning than leaving it stock?

No one can answer that but you as it is of course a personal opinion/decision. I think there is more than sufficient evidence on this and many other forums to conclude that deleting is much better for the engine but there can be a down side in the possibility of losing your warranty. Personally I don't think the warranty is worth much and if parts fail on my truck I plan to replace with superior aftermarket parts as opposed to ford parts. Whatever you decide good luck and enjoy your truck...

Yeah I'm already convinced deleting will only improve my truck's engine life, fuel economy, and performance. I wouldn't want to do anything too extreme that could potentially harm any systems, but I would appreciate a better throttle response and MPG rating. I miss the turbo whistle of my old 6.0, is there a way I can crank that up on the 6.7? Can anyone direct me to a good thread that thoroughly covers 6.7 performance?
