What tuner to get

I have a 2011 F250, Im thinking about getting a tuner and deleting the DPF, EGR, and the DEF system. What do you guys recommend for a tuner and where to get everything that I need. Also I seen kits for EGR cooler removal and I have just seen the block off plates to remove the EGR valve, I don't know what to go with. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A lot of guys are saying H&S, or at least if you can still find a race tuner that the company will still provide service for. The only other one that still does it is Spartan I believe.

Hi there, new to the board. Don't own a 6.7 just yet, but I'm looking into what all it will cost me to get one to where I want it.

I've been looking around at different tuners, but everything seems so scarce. Your post seems to allude to this somewhat -- did something happen to H&S? I'm having trouble finding much information on tuners and what all is involved...do I need to ship them the ECU?

Thanks in advance.

I hate to be that guy....but...when it comes to tuners there is a ton of threads with information on these...I have written some myself as I had a spartan and switched to h&s. Do yourselves a solid and cruise though the forums...but long story short h&s is the most versatile. U could hit up Rudy's diesel or street diesel performance.

The EPA went after H&S and fined them for making the tuners that allow you to delete the emissions equipment.

Wow that's really ****ty... so where does that leave us?

That explains why I keep seeing "WARNING THIS IS FOR OFF ROAD USE BLAH BLAH" moreseo than normal. Coming from the turbo gasser world I'm using to seeing that as tiny subtext of subtext...not big bold red letters everywhere.

Is there a DIY/open source tune solution I'm not aware of that's picking up the slack? I just feel like I'm missing what the common ways to make serious hp are. Maybe I just need to search better.
