I just ordered a package deal from Rudy's. It's the 4" flow-pro exhaust dwn pipe back, sinister egr delete and the SCT X4 with delete programs already loaded on it. The tow tune is only like 40ish HP so I figure that will be safe. I'm hoping doing all this will wake that bad boy up a bit. It runs strong, but its hard getting used to the lag again coming from a super peppy tuned 5.0 I had

I'm running something similar. I have the sct livewire and flowpro 4". I guess it all depends on who tuned yours. I have punch it, but I here better things about gear head. But yeah, the street tune is beast. I haven't been above that. Will be going back to tow tune, for good, though.

That's who it is, is punch it. Why will you be staying on a "tow" tune?

Well, I mainly deleted mine so I wouldn't have any dpf or egr issues down the road, and for "longevity." But lately I've just been seeing some things on here, and other articles on the subject. On my street tune and probably yours too, getting on it, but not even WOT dumps black smoke. Supposedly this isn't good for the turbo. There's other issues with timing, and other things. I would just feel a little better with it out of that high of a map. Don't get me wrong, the power and the firm shifts are awesome. I don't run my truck that hard and I guess the smoke is my biggest pet peeve.

I know what you mean about the turbo lag. I came from 2 different Titans, both full bolt ons with tunes. My 250 felt like it was in slow motion until it was tuned.

Here's my current engine mods with some feedback on my 2011 lifted F-350 with 175k miles on the clock.

-HS Tuner (99% set to Tow for better mileage no smoke at all at WOT)
-EGT sensor showing temps on Tuner and have safeguards in place for turbo PSI and Over Temps
-Full 5" exhaust deleted
-Sinister Diesel EGR delete kit
-No Limit Performance CCV delete (wish I had done this from day one) The oil build up in the intercooler and intake caused my plastic cold side pipe to blow off.
-No Limit Cold air intake

I recorded 26 MPG highway after the delete on stock tires with no lift. So the deletes make a huge difference in mileage if your towing a lot or highway driving. Everything is really simple to install and wouldn't take longer then a weekend with some beer/pizza. Enjoy your new truck, if you take care of them they last a long time.

I towed my travel trailer this weekend for the first time with this truck. I will say I'm very impressed how well it pulls it. Although I'm not real impressed with the mileage. It was a pretty short camping trip, aprox 50-60 miles each way, but I only averaged 10.7 mpg.

2011-2014 turbos all have the same bearings

How do you like the Sinister Diesel EGR Delete Kit? I just ordered it and hear that EGR kits in general are kind of a paint to install. What are your thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

The EGR kit is probably one of the easiest when compared to similar late model duramax. I would presoak the exhaust bolts the night before and may as well change your coolant. Other then that it's pretty simple and the instructions with sinister products are very good. The EGR is much heavier then it looks so heads up.

I highly recommend the OIL Crankcase delete while your at. Probably a better mod then the EGR in turns of saving your intercooler and intake system from complete oil sludge.

good luck!
