Things I should do to my 6.4??

Quick Hello!. Former LBZ Dmax owner, traded on a 07 Escalade for some reason and pulled my little 25' one time and HATED it. That 6.2/6 speed combo is terrible even at 6k lbs load.

Anyways, sucked it up and traded the Caddy in on a dark blue pearl 08 F250. 1 owner new F250 trade, 50k miles and all stock. Oasis didn't show anything odd to me.

I ran EFILive on my Dmax and bang for the buck, that was a fast truck.


Some questions I have for you guys as a 1st time Ford SD owner. I'd appreciate a little help getting up to speed so to say..

1..I'm looking to do 35's on 20's. Would like to know what offset to run. I see that a leveling kit is worthwhile, which one would be good to try and not unnecessarily cost too much $?

2..Tuners. I guess this is a two part question. Seems that some tuners are made to run the DPF and up it 100hp/200ft lbs. Then the other set of tuners goes well past that with !DPF. What's the better idea here. I don't race people but I sure liked my 150hp adder on my LBZ. Mostly I ran around on the 100hp tune.

3..exhaust and intake mods, what's involved with the !dpf other than a tuner to support that !. What intakes do we like that let the turbo give some sound. I thought the Dmax was quiet, this thing is like a car. I'd like to hear her spool up and a little more from the pipe.


thx for the advice..

alright, that gets me going. Which tuners can do the delete? Is it a better idea to run a cat back or just ditch the dpf with a pipe and run the tuner?

I'm a little confused on the deleting sequence. Buy the tuner and get the pipe installed and then change the tune to delete?
