Bulletproofing 6.4 ~ More confused than when I started
Man, I feel dumb.
I have read countless threads on this topic and I think that I am more confused now than when I started researching this topic.
Here is where I am at now. I have purchased an H&S Minimaxx race tuner and am now trying to make the purchases for the following items (CAI, EGR & DPF delete). I thought that I was all set, and then I started reading more threads on here & I think that I got into my own head a bit. Here are my issues:
1. CAI. I am planning on putting one of these on, but as I start researching them I find that there are wet or dry versions of them. Damn. Not sure whats best there...
2. I had planned on getting the Sinister EGR delete kit, but then I started reading about the high flow intake elbows & I am trying to figure out if I should get that also. Frankly, I am still new to this 6.4 & the whole EGR system confuses me a bit. I thought that I was trying to delete it with this kit, yes? What does replacing the intake elbow do for me?
3. DPF Delete. Mostly a size issue here. I was going to just the the 4" DPF Delete pipe. But again, after doing some reading, it appears that all of the stock piping on the 6.4 is 3.5", right? So I need to either get the 3.5" pipe or get the 4" pipe and swap out everything downstream, right? Also, should I just go ahead and get rid of the CAT while I am at it? Pros/Cons on that one?
4. Wastegate. What the hell is this thing? I have run across it a couple of times while I have been reading up on everything else, and I can't find a decent explanation of what it is or what it does or why I should consider doing it.
I guess that's about it. I'm just trying to figure out what all I should buy for this project. I will be doing it all myself, and I want to do everything at once, even if it takes me longer than a day. I just want to do what I have to do to make the truck last as long as possible.
Thanks for the help!
