New Member here - Couple of questions

Hey guys well I'm a new member here and hope I am posting in the right spot. If I am posting my questions in the wrong spot please let me know and get me pointed in the right direction. I am excited to be a member and look forward to everything I am going to learn here. So let me get straight to it LOL

This is my 1st Diesel engine and I am learning as I go. I must say I love my truck and this new 6.7 though. I have had my truck a yr now and finally ordered me a mini maxx last week. I decided to order it while I could still find one with the dpf delete option. I installed it today and WOW it brought the truck to life. I installed with the dpf present and I can't wait to find out what the truck is going to do once I delete it. My first question is this.... I think I got everything tuned correctly. Are there any settings I need to change or adjust on top of the regular preset tune? I am primarily asking because I saw defueling settings that I have no idea what they are???? Most of these were set to off. Should they be??

Also I am going to go ahead and do the dpf delete and install an exhaust system. I want something that sounds good but not extremely loud. I like the super loud exhaust, I just like it on other people's trucks not mine. I like the nice diesel hum sound--something that sounds good and isn't extremely loud. Suggestions please!!

I would also appreciate some suggestions for a CAI. I was leaning afe or air raid just looking for suggestions as I have only used a CAI once and it was on my F150.

Sorry for posting so long and so many questions. I just want to make sure I get this right and know y'all will steer me in the right direction. Look forward to the suggestions. THANKS !!!

Kinda how I felt when I bought mine. From a 1993 f250 gasser to a 2011 6.7... It's a big step. Has a little more power, and a few more features. (it is missing a voltmeter reading on the dash though)
