New 6.4 Owner, mod order suggestions
Just purchased a 2008 6.4 crew cab SRW with 30k miles. I have a few mods already on my to do list and would like some help in what order to do them. Truck is a weekend driver for trips and occasionally pull light weight campers and trailers. Looking for drivability, reliability and fuel mileage. I'm not a power junky although I'm not going to deny liking the skinny pedal on occasion when a cummins or duramax wants to try me.
Below is what I'm thinking for order.
1. H & S programmer
2. Offroad race upgrade for tuner
3. DPF/cat delete for when I'm offroading
4. Coolant filter
5. EGR block off or full delete
6. Shock/tire upgrade for a quieter smoother ride
7. Radiator/hose updates or upgrades
8. Innercooler pipes and boot upgrades
I have a bumper to bumper factory extended warrarty till Oct 2015 so I'm a little concerned about the programmer and deletes. On the EGR delete, do the coolers hold up better after the race tunes that turn the EGR system off? I'm thinking all the heat when they are working is what causes them to go bad. Help me out here and let me know what I'm missing or what order you did your mods.
