Question 03 F350 6.0 (New to Diesel)

I have an 03 6.0 long box crew cab 3:73's 4x4 every thing is stock.

I will be pulling a 10,000 lb toy hauler and 3-6 quads.

I am thinking of a 6 pos tw or dpp. 4" turbo back and stock size tires.
getting rid of Cat, stock muffler and particulate filter.

I am getting 15 city 18 hwy mpg.

Should I leave well enough alone, or will I see big improvements in performance mpgs,are they worth the money.

Thanks for your input.

^^^^I agree SCT is the way to go....and the 6.0 did not come with a particulate filter in the exhaust.

I know it has a cat and a muffler but in between is another item I just assumed it to be a particulate filter.

Yes. I'll show my ignorance.
I assumed the Cat was wrapped just after the bend from the downpipe then a rusted 2x football size item Rusty then the muff.

Live in WA. no testing as of yet so I figured I'd get rid of all extras to let everything breath.

Will find out next weekend how well it pulls next weekend, it has to be better than 94 1/2 ton GMC only went within 30 miles of house and no major grades.
