As long as you don't run a bully dog your good H&S street tunes ( DPF present )are good Edge high end products are usually always pretty good and their customer service is great too, hell you could even run a superchips programmer. When I was running a DPF present tune I noticed it regen'd more frequently but not for as long, im guessing that's the engines way of combating the extra soot from the extra horsepower.

PS don't be afraid to drive your truck the heat and boost and pressure through the exhaust is a good thing and will keep from plugging up. These trucks need to be worked

Thanks for the info. Calms my nerves a little. I had a bulletproofed 6.0 for a long time and this 6.7 is SO diffrent. Kinda pricey to lol so dont wanna kill it but there capable of so much more if you can tune it decently

Yea they are good trucks and honestly if your working the truck regularly or doing a lot of freeway there is no need to tune at all, I see a lot of 6.7s come thru my shop mostly construction and logging used trucks 250 and 350s no 450s and most of them average 50k annual mileage and they are all tip top.

Tuning and deleting really brings your mid and top end to life there is really no change in low end grunt that's all gearing. And honestly I got better gas mileage stock with stock wheels and tires . But I idle my truck a lot and I tow a lot and always 7k+ so deleting was a good choice for me everybody does different stuff with their trucks so you really just need to see what works best for you and most of all don't compare to others there are guys on here with some pretty nice redneck hotrods try and compete and ull find yourself broke and getting served divorce papers , just enjoy the truck be happy your not driving a Dmax and welcome to the forum !!

Im taking this from a really trusted person in diesel performance but I have seen him state a few times that a tuner on a 6.7 really picks up the 0-50mph but the 50-100mph isn't much more than stock if any

Sorry I didn't clarify I meant RPM range I feel a lot more power from 2k up than I did when it was stock , if never had my truck over 80
