Finally got my 6.4

Found my dream truck finally after my 6.0 was stolen. It is an 08 all stock F-350 Fx4 srw. Has a brand new fabtech 6" lift and new 35s. I plan on doing the basics intake, h&s, and exhaust. What tune would keep it safe with the lift and tires. Also plan on doing CCV, PTP's egr delete, and traction bars. Anything else i should plan on doing?

Alot of people run them on the default wild (250hp) or hot damm wild (300hp) as daily drivers with no issues. I would say as long as it isn't wide open all day long it shouldn't cause any issues. Most people claim better mileage with the higher tunes as well.

I have a intake and exhaust that I only had on my truck for a few thousand miles before I traded it in for sale in the Performance & Drivetrain Parts section. I would make you a nice deal on them. Nice truck btw.

I daily drive h&s hot damn 300 tune. It's pretty touchy coming from a tuned 6.0 but no problems yet except a stupid squeaky pully tensioner.

Yup same here. That's the pulley tensioner going out. It's a common problem.

I'm not sure which one it is exactly. I just know I have that loud squeak at start up but haven't really tried to diagnose it.
