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.

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.
