6.7 schoooling needed

alright guys here is the scoop my father in law bought a new 6.7 and is looking to what to maintain and what chip or module to use to get better mileage he isnt looking to make it a power house since they have so much out of stock the only issue he has had is chopped tires so far and loves the truck. we just would like to know if there is anything to watch out for i have a 6.0 and researched all the issues and im very happy w mine and he wants to be in the same boat and not blind sided you all have been good to me with info on my 6.0 and i know you will all send us in the right direction with his new truck.
Thanks everyone

You only need one thing... Punctuation! lol Just kidding man. I don't know of this chip for better fuel milage, I bought the H and S Mini Max. K & N does not make a drop in air filter but I think AirRaid, and AFE (I think). Other than that, you'll need a tuner.

94% of all Dodge Cummins trucks from1992 through 2012 are still on the road today..... The other 6% made it home.....

If it still runs when you delete it, you don't need it!

Well as long as it is a schooling thread I'll ask this.

Does the OE anti freeze, presuming they still use the Ford A/F with silicate, need to be changed out to an ELC coolant and also does this coolant system need or require a coolant filter like my old 6.0 did?

I don't think the tuners/delete are making more than about a 10% increase in mileage. I find that not worth sacrificing the warranty for. If he keeps the truck for 90,000 miles and averages 14 mpg he will use about $25,000 worth of diesel. So he could save 10% or $2500 on fuel by tuning which is not far off what a tuner and exhaust is going to cost. Why bother?

I believe the fuel savings will be a little better. I have no numbers to post right now. Tuning is half of the way, you need to DPF delete as well. I know the warranty is voided..... If they can prove it. If I have a complete breakdown, my plan is to remove everything I installed and lie to them! lol

Good luck with that, everything you've done is recorded by the truck's computer. They'll bust you, and they should too if the mods caused the failure, it's fraud.

You may want to look into the Torq2.1 if you want a "programmer" (yes I know its not a programmer) that can easily be removed from the truck before taking in for warranty and is supposed to be undetectabe due to it not reporgramming the Computer . It is supposed to increase mileage a little and costs around 450 dollars. Innovative diesel makes it.
