Time to Remodel

Ok boys the time has finally come to get all the little things done I have wanted to since I bought my 6.4 F250 FX4 back in 2008. I have been browsing the forums for some time off and on and think I have it narrowed down. Any comments on a take off list are appreciated. Currently my truck is in stock form rolling 33" Toyo Mt's. I am having a local mod shop do the work.

1) DPF delete w/ 4" CatBack $900
2) H&S XRT: $664.00
3) EGR Block off Plate: $220
4) 2.5" Ready Lift Front Level Kit $300
5) Bilstein Heavy Duty Shocks: $375.00
6) Toyo MT's 35x12.5R20: $1600

Am I missing anything? Should I pony up for the MiniMax instead of XRT? ANy pricing seem out of line?

I have never used the xrt but I have the mini maxx and I couldn't be happier. Deleting the exhaust makes a world of difference. You will be happy.

looks pretty good, exhaust looks a little high price wise. Also if you want to save a few$$$$ on the xrt pro I got a used one for sale http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/per...t-pro-f-s.html

I would also recommend doing an intake. I have S&B stage 2 intake and I love it. This is all fairly easy stud to install FYI. I got my mini maxx, intake with filter, and downpipe back delete exhaust all shipped to my door for $1600 from h&s themselves. All easy to install as well. Just my 2 cents

I would do the full egr delete that flo pro makes for $295. It also comes with a polished intake elbow.

your exhaust price seems real high....i think if you dont get the mini you are going to wish you did.......and you need an air intake....i bought DP back 5" exhaust with muffler, AFE dry intake, mini with the mount, for $1700

Look at flo pro for exhaust and egr delete. If you do xrt better look for gauges so in that case just go with spartan tuner or H&S mini max. Get a CAI cause the trucks love air when they are tuned.

I also agree about the pricey cat/back exhaust. For half that price u can get a new 4" turndown/ back straight pipe and sounds better. Takes about an hour to install.

Cant go wrong with a cold air intake afe or s&b and like somebody else said after installing everything ur going to wish u had gotten the mini

I suggest a coolant and a trani filtration system
