New Owner...

Hey guys new owner of a 2012 F350 SRW CC SB. I love the truck and runs great stock. I will be either doing a Carli or Icon lift later this year. I have been looking and read kind of mixed reviews on guys that actually have done the deletes. I had a 6.7 cummins that was deleted and ran like a champ. Some guys say they have turbo problems when deleteing. Is this a common problem or just rare when guys are running the trucks on hotter tunes. I just dont want to delete if there are common problems associated.

Congrats on the truck! From what I've read on here I think as long as you set the max boost to about 32/34psi you should be good. I'd look up your build date and make sure you have the newer style turbo first tho. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong but I think they switched mid 2012.

Congrats on the truck. The emission equipment doesn't seem so bad. Sage Carli beats his 2011 to death. Hell, he snapped an axle he runs it so hard but not a lick of trouble from the motor after 60K of abuse. Good luck with your build!

Yeah everything I have read and reviewed shows Carli as a nice system. I look foward to finally getting the system. OC is there any downgrade if I am going to be towing with it. I do not tow a lot or heavy but would still like a lift kit that changes nothing.

That all depends on what you choose. If you go with an add-a-pack in the rear then you maintain your ability to haul a factory load. If you do full springs, the ride will be exponentially better but you lose 15% of your payload capacity. You can add our long-travel airbags to either setup to bring the rear end up to level when towing within the GCWR of the truck. We offer several scenarios so you would just have to decide which is right for you!
