looking for mods for my 6.4

Ive been searching around here and it seems as if the DPF delete and a tuner are the first major mods anyone does on their trucks. Im pretty sure i have this correct but being new to diesels I'm not certain, but if i get a full turbo back exhaust plus an H&S minimax my DPF will be completely deleted?

I think i understand where you can get certain parts of the pipe to delete the dpf but i think i just want to replace the whole exhaust. Other than exhaust and programmer i was gonna do an intake just wasn't sure if i should do a wet or dry intake?

Any help would be appreciated, I've tried searching but I'm still not positive i have all this information correct regarding the DPF delete.

Yes it will be completely deleted if you do a full exhaust. As for the wet or dry filter do you mean oiled or dry and if so I think it is just a personal preference thing.

You can to a full turbo back exhaust, a downpipe back exhaust, or you can keep your tailpipe section and do just a dpf delete or a cat(DOC)/DPF delete. It really depends on what you want in sound or if you will need to go back to stock for warranty or emissions. I currently have a 4 inch cat/dpf delete that goes to a dpf back 5 inch exhaust. I did mine in stages. Right now I could install the factory cat/dpf and still keep my 5 inch tailpipe but I hope not to have to do that. As far as the intake, that is up to you. Dry is easier but might not flow as good as wet. Will you notice? Probably not.

thanks for the replies.

If i have the money i think i may do a full exhaust at one time. Ive also seen it straight piped or with a muffler, is this just mainly for sound or is there benefits of that as well?

And yes i did mean oiled or dry, i thought i read that the oiled filters werent good for the diesel but i could be mistaken. In my last truck i had a K&N that i just cleaned and reoiled every so often but i wasnt sure for these trucks what would be best.

Yeah the muffler will be just to quiet it up a bit.
I read that about oiled filters as well but in these trucks in particular unless you have a ccv mod, the crankcase vent to the intake anyways. Plus I think you would really have to oil the $@!' out of it for it to go right through the filter. Or that's what I think of the oiled situation anyways. Just for the heck of it I bought one of each anyways so I just swap them out.

Alright so basically just a turbo back exhaust, H&S Minimax and an air intake and im at a good start correct?

Ill probably just go with the oiled filter as well, never had problems in my other truck even though it was gas, but i ran it for 50,000 miles and it was still good as new so hopefully this will work. I love the truck so far but cant wait to start doing some mods to it.

You will absolutely love your truck after all that stuff. I haven't even done anything to my exhaust other than the dpf/cat delete and what a difference! I recently did an egr delete as well and it made a huge difference in throttle response. I did have to turn down the low oost fueling on the h&s though due to my wife not enjoying the smoke when you get on it lol. Have fun!
