Same here,I am going with Mini Max and DPF/Cat Delete pipe. I will have to put it back to stock every 2 years for CA. Smog test. So it all depends on your states emissions testing and how much work you have to do to pass (stock). Just got my registration in the mail 352.00 a year for tags which sucks (152+200 for weight) CA rip off. But cheaper than original owner= 582.00

I'm going to talk to the guy's at alligator,to see which is the best way for me to go but thinking down pipe back,w/h&s tuner,will call them on tuesday,not to sticky on emmissions as ca, but only once a year,so if I have to put it back,oh well it's only for one day,tags cost me maybe 250 or so not to sure but thats for two years.

magnum...when you say the dpf comes on every 100 miles or so.....are you meaning "regen"...does your message board tell you you
are regening?....if so your truck hasn't had the latest reflash of the pcm...you prolly should get the reflash before you start to delete dpf and stuff. with the latest flash your message board doesn't tell you that it is regening anymore.
