First diesel exhaust/dpf question

ive got an 08 job 1 250 and am going to be purchasing a SCT livewire programmer to try and improve my mpg. I was going to just straight pipe it because it was cheap but cant find any muffler shops to do it, so im looking to for some help on what to do instead. If there is another thread on this please point me in the right direction. Thank you

I just did mine tonight. I went with the flopro 5" stainless system. it kinda has a muffler, its straight through and doesnt really do much. Its got a nice low note to it and gives a nice whistle at idle as well. a bolt on kit is going to run you about the same as a custom job probably...or just get the delete pipe only and put it in line with your stock exhaust. i think its like a hundred bucks to do that, just make sure you tuner will allow you to run without the dpf. Therer are like 3 or 4 sensors hooked to the big piece of crap. good luck theres a ton of good info i found on here as well. im new to the diesels.... H and S tuner for me though. anyway ahve fun with it

get a sledge hammer. I have an 08 job1 and when we did mine the tubes were rusted together. We weren't doing full blow swings, just the weight behind it really helps to dislodge it for the piece that is connected to the muffler. Was our biggest obstacle and was a piece of cake once we did that.

I think the hardest part was removing the rear portion....i just bailed into unbolting and prying that i couldnt figure out how to get that long multiply bend pipe to the tail end. finally i came around. Look stupid jack the rear of the truck up. I ended up just removing the passenger rear tire just to make that part easier. No hammer needed for me. just a couple pry bars and some pb blaster on the rubber hangers to help them slide off and to remove the connections.
