I am new to diesel engines. I am wanting to find out the best tuner to get, and still be able to keep my extended warranty on my daily driver. I am really just wanting opinions, and would like to find out as much info as possible before purchasing. I am leaning toward the Banks Six Gun w/ iQ right now, but still want to research more.

pretty much everyone on this website is going to tell you to stay away from banks stuff, not that it is bad quality or anything like that it is just very pricey. Look into the spartan tuner they will set you up just rite and you will get a ton of bang for the dollars your going to spend. Its well worth every penny in my opinion take a look at spartans website and also take a look at rudys (dpfdeletekits.com) they both have great customer service and both will set you up with what you are looking for. Hope this helps a little bit you can learn a ton of info on this site just by reading threw what everyone else is talking about

Thanks for the info. I am going through a lot of the threads on this and other forums, and trying to find the best route to go. I have looked on the Spartan page, and my main concern is keeping the extended bumper to bumper warranty while still getting some more performance. I have been told to steer clear of the DPF delete until the warranty is gone. Thinking about a DPF-back exhaust...any suggestions or comments?

i am no expert but from what i know, if you just simply go with the dpf back exhaust you going to have more frequent regens and you mite even get worse gas mileage id just get a spartan with the full exhaust if it was me and then if your worried a about the exhaust being a problem with the warranty throw the stocker back on if something bad happens to your truck

Thanks, I am going back down to Houston this weekend, and I am gonna pick up the tuner while I am down there. I'm sure the exhaust can wait a little while.
