Thoughts please...

I'm looking at getting some more performance out of my 08 but with only 42k on the odometer I don't really want to do something that'll void warrenty. I've thought about an exhaust and chip and what not just not real sure. Plus I'm still pretty new to these new diesels and am not real sure what I can and can't do with out a chip and what kind of gains I'd get. Is it worth doing anything like a straight pipe after the dpf or is that even possible with out a chip? Thanks in advance for any input.

If you wanna do exhaust you'll wanna get rid of the DPF and CAT cause that's the cause of a lot of wasted fuel during regen and excessive back pressure. To delete the DPF the regen needs to be tuned out.
You just voided your warranty. Unless you find a dealer who is mod friendly, you'll probably be out of luck.

my first thought was , come back when you are done worrying about your warranty.

That's what I was figuring I was just seeing if I had some options without ditching the dpf guess I'm going to start talking to the dealer

You should have a 5 year/60,000 mile power train warranty. When was the truck purchased. The warranty might be up real soon.

I would go with an H & S tuner and delete the DPF. With the H & S tuner you pull the whole DPF/DOC out with all the sensors still in it. If you ever had an issue with the truck you would have to reinstall the DPF before you took it to Ford. Really it only takes about an hour to swap the DPF in and out so it's not that bad. Now if you travel long distances with the truck you might want to reconsider. If it breaks down on you along ways from home and you have to take is to Ford then you'll be screwed.

With the extra fuel mileage you'll get from the DPF being removed the chip will pay itself off quick. Not to mention 6.4's are nasty with a tuner on them.

but, if you tune.......you do need to be involved in the operation of the truck,and learn about how it functions.....the reason i say this is because i tuned a "friends" truck for him... and he still has no clue as to what we did..... doesn't know what to call it.....refuses to learn anything about it..... so he calls me.......any time his truck farts.....

I had 38K Miles on my 2010 and pulled the trigger it's a little scary at first but I could not be happier now. This even after my 2008 Bone Stock bit the dust twice at 24K miles with two HPFP failures and finally it cavitated "kapoww" roughly 3 1/2 months in shop out of the 1 year and 4 months I owned it. ford bought it back thats how ended up with 2010 for $2500 bucks lol

That's how I feel about a few buddies of mine!! I won't be helping anymore of them order all the correct parts and then be their free tuner/upgrader installer/mechanic.. I enjoy wrenching on what ever I can and don't mind helping out. But when they can't figure out how to change the display color LOL!!! Now Unless H&S wants put me on the payroll And include commish that might be a different story lol
