For your backup camera, make sure the connection is tight between the tailgate's harness and the harness at the back of the truck. As far as deleting goes, once I'm out of the bumper to bumper warranty coverage period, it's all coming off. The H&S tuner will turn off the EGR cooler but I believe it's still possible to have issues with them leaking even if they're turned off. Block off plates are a couple hundred dollars that I think, from the research I've done, are well worth it.

wow all that sounds like way more than i need ..i am not wanting to race it ..its a work truck ...i am starting to think that the cheapest H&S tuner may be plenty for me with a DPF/CAT delete and EGR delete ....i dont really need to see all the stuff on the screen ...i have another truck to go fast in ..

That's what you need to make your truck run efficiently,your down pipe off the turbos crawl under there and look at it and it's double walled so it's smaller inside.Cooler egt's when you replace it and now adays they make the exhaust kits turbo back so makes more sense to get it in one shot.
