I was all set to delete and tune my '08 F250 and now I'm not so sure. My stock truck currently has about 140K miles with a slight leak in second radiator. Shocking I know.
Here is my dilemma; I plan to keep the truck for 2-3 more years. By then I will have approx 165K-180K miles. With what the EPA has done with the tuners, if I delete my DPF/EGR now, when I am ready for a new truck will I be stuck with this '08 that I cannot sell unless I find a buyer with the right tuner? I doubt I would want to sell the truck with the tuner, then I would not have one for the new truck.
I currently live in an apartment so storing the removed exhaust in a closet, or hanging it on the living room wall is not an option.
When I first started looking at tuners the Mini Maxx was about $900 and the Spartan was about $1250, now the Mini Maxx price matches if not exceeds the Spartan. One online company is offering a Spartan package with tuner, dash mount, full 5" exhaust, intake, and Sinister EGR delete. They also offer the same exact package with the Mini Maxx rather than Spartan for an additional $400. Is the Mini Maxx really worth the additional $400 when all someone wants to do is to insure the durability of their engine, not increase HP or torque?
