Question dpf delete / tuner question

I have an 08 250 w 50000 miles when warranty is out thinking about dpf delete. I am not interested in hot rodding the truck just for durability purposes. My question is with having to have a tuner to turn off regen , is it possible to leave at stock power level. I realize the freer flowing exhaust would be a little boost , I just dont want to hurt reliability and high mileage potential. Also what kind of fuel mileage improvements should be expected.

Thanks for your help,

Mark

It depends on the brand of tuner you go with but most do have the "stock" power level as a setting. Reliability will come from doing an EGR delete in addition to the DPF delete. Seems like a lot of people get better mileage with the mid to higher tunes compared to the lower tunes. Mileage will depend on driving habits.

Yes, on H&S, the tuner disables the EGR. However, some cycle the EGR or do not turn it off.

Ive had spartan and h&s. Go with h&s.
they have 3 different levels of trans shifting that you can choose from that changes your shift and tc lock up points.
I Have a minimaxx with kem tunes to 345. i ran the 345 and 310 daily for a few months, but i now run the 150. it has near stock level egts with much better oomph and mpgs.
Any dpf delete you do is going to help save your motor. your dpf keeps your egts high because it restricts your exhaust flow so much and gets diesel in your crankcase.

You can accomplish what you want with any of the H&S tuners. Take a look at the upgrades section here and you will have plenty of reading for days. Feel free to call us with any questions you may have.

Don't look for any MPG gains because there is a chance there wont be much. That was the case for me anyway.

I think the MPG gains come from the truck not going into regen and wasting a bunch of fuel.
