Hey thanks for the reply, yea I didnt plan ahead enough to discuss the items you mentioned.
After much research on here plus the recommendation from the Tech it looks like I am going to cross over to the dark side and do the tuner / delete kit.
I scored a used Spartan setup on Ebay for what I consider a reasonable price and the guy is local so I can view it and verify that he returned it to stock before I purchase, I understand it will cost me $100 to have it setup for my truck. I am fine with that and think it is fair.
So I guess my next question is going to revolve around the exhaust / delete options. At a minimum I will do the DPF/DOC delete but I am thinking I might as well do the whole system as the prices are not that much more than just the delete kits.
I am still going to purchase the ESP warranty and if I have a problem I will need to return everything to stock before I take it in, as I said earlier the Tech is MOD friendly so to speak but out of respect I would not want to flaunt the MODS if I need service and risk a problem.
So what would be easier to return to stock? Just the DOC/DPF delete or the whole system? Is there any disadvantages do just doing the deletes rather than the whole system, MPG, Performance wise or is it really just about the sound?
And the next question if I decide to do the whole thing 4in or 5in? Single or dual, muffler or not, AFE, MBRP, Diamond Eye?
I know a lot of questions and I know that everyone has their own opinions so that is why I am asking, looking for input from those that have been in my shoes already.
On a side not the dealer called me last night and said I should be done today, but looking across the street here I see my cab still in the air so we shall see.
