Talking O M G!!!! Can you say HELLO?!!

Man...what a difference a day makes!

Last weekend, I started to see the first signs of an unhealthy situation...SO I decided to take the bull by the horns.

EGR / DPF Delete + Sinister Diesel Intake (see pic below) & H&S Mini-Maxx tuner installed.

HOLY CRAP batman. HotDam300 will scare that $h!t out of ya if you're not ready for it, that's for damn sure.

Having been a 6.4L PowerStroke owner for just over a year now, and having read countless threads...I knew it would only be a matter of time; but I don't really think I realized just how much this would WAKE the truck up!

I didn't even read the manual til I got home, but did manage to figure out how to update the tuner to HotDam300 & S1M settings. I'm very impressed with the H&S tuner.

Now to figure out how to KEEP my foot out of the skinny pedal (lmao).

I'll be tracking fuel mileage (both city & highway) along with which tune I'm running and will report back over time. Plan is to run the Wild225 for the majority of the time and track fuel economy. I will say that I am an uber-geek (InfoSec Engineer, by trade), so I'll probably run through all the settings with sufficient data to get an accurate read on fuel economy.

Truck yes...wallet no! But, for the work done, I will say that I got a pretty decent deal overall (IMO).

I can understand the wallet situation. Just wait till you start adding the other mods, it will become an addiction

Dammit...I already have a Harley that I'm constantly buying stuff for. Guess now I've got two vehicles to drop money on. LMAO

Saw a couple of things I want to do to the beast, while the truck was getting serviced yesterday, so I guess I better start putting $$$ away.

First semi-highway run after the upgrade (205.3 miles, of which 34 miles were city type driving, though I did manage to catch mostly green lights).

Did the 205 miles and my fuel gauge is still a ways above 3/4 (so roughly 8 gal used). Considering all things, I am pretty stoked!!

First trip towing travel trailer coming this weekend (5 mountain passes inc. Wolf Creek Pass), so that should be a great test!!

Bravo…..KoalaCowboy……..Now you ve done it.
I can picture you driving around saying “Say HELLO to my little friend, Mocha/Tan Deleted”.
Now…..Id like to know, how the rest of the fuel tank did (the ¾ of it).
The fuel gauge on Fords is designed to fool us…….from full to ¾ it drops slowly and then from ¾ to empty……….is like “ oh oh, I think I got a fuel leak”.
So keep an eye on the miles & tell me how many you covered for that tank.

Title on hand like always
