Deleted and Loving It

So I finally got around to doing the DPF and EGR delete on the truck. I also installed the Mini Maxx Race.

Aside from the INSANE amounts of power this unlocked, the MPG gains are insane. I am a stock FX4 Crew Cab and I was able to get 22.6 MPG on the highway (100 mile round trip) at 68-72MPH. I also am seeing about 17MPG in the city. This is so much better than the 14/17 I got stock.

Plus being able to light the tires up is always a good time

I would love to delete my 6.7, does the engine feel a bit more responsive?

Night and day, Ive owned a lot of high horsepower cars (Nissan GTR, Lambo Gallardo, Dodge Viper) and the throttle response and torque is just as fluid and crisp as those listed above. The noise level is great as well, normal driving sounds stock, WOT sounds like a pissed off jet.

The biggest thing is the pure grunt, when I would get on it un deleted I felt it would lag a bit, not now.

Tuner was $1200
DPF Delete Pipe $160
EGR Block $50

Labor $175

If you already have a tuner with the ability to turn the DPF regen cycle off then that's a big hunk of the cost.

Maybe I should do it as well. I really like my truck; just hate the mileage. I wasn't expecting great mileage but 10-12 mpg is very poor. Maybe I will wait and see what it does in summer. Running winter fuel and temps have averaged around -20C since I got the truck. I thought it should do 15-16 on the hwy. My 06 Dodge does 12-13 pulling a 25 ft gooseneck all summer. I have done a lot to the dodge as far as performance parts though. These trucks really need a bigger tank!
