Recommendations,

I just joined this forum and just traded my 06 F350 dually for an 08 F350 with a 6.4/automatic,,general consensus from everything I've been able to read is that you are the people when it comes to the 6.4..I was looking for a reccomendation on tuner/delete pipe and exhaust system,,I was considering the Banks air intake kit due to the fact that they don't seem to have some of the noise issues as AfE and some of the others.

As far as tuning goes, limited towing, but heavy load,(10,000 lb boat/trailer)
and want an in cab monitoring system,,,I always used Edge previously because of the monitor and on the fly program changes.
Whatever I buy I'll buy from you due to word of mouth on customer service,,,but I am a PITA if I have problems/questions.
I am mechanically inclined as I own a tire/alignment shop in the Orlando area.

If you'd like to discuss this in a little more detail you can call me at your convience at 321-239-0367 pretty much ant time.

Thanks in advance for your time, Nick

Congrats on the new rig and welcome to the site. I think Spartan is the tuner of choice for the 6.4 guys but they'll be along shortly I'm sure.

Thanks Dlonno, On my 6.0 after a couple of years of playing I pretty much had it figured out, but like all things the new improved doesn't always work like we thought it was going to. My 06 F350 was a 6.0 swb dually 4x4 with 4:30 gears, airaid intake system, 4" Basanni turbo back system and an Edge with Attitude controller, 2 1/2" leveling kit and Brentz 19.5 direct fit alcoa style wheels with 265/70r19.5 Michelin XDE+2s. No fuel mileage to speak of but a true tow monster.
With the new truck I thought it was a matter of a delete pipe, air box and I'd be done,,,obviously I was WRONG.

You know a lot of guys on here are seeing over 500hp with just the delete kit, the 275 tune, intake and exhaust. It looks like the 6.4 powerhouse can get you where you want to go much cheaper than most diesels available today.

The local Ford stealer discounted the damn truck so much I couldn't afford not to buy it.
15 grand off of sticker was strong and they didn't totally kill me on my dually trade-in.
Besides, I thought the tailgate step was the sh*t.

Still no response from Spartan,,,,doesn't make much sense to have a respondable venue if you don't respond..All I wanted to do was spend some money with them.
