So I just got an 08 F250 crew cab, long bed with 6" lift and 35" procomp extreme all terrain tires. The truck is way more than I'll ever need for sure. I do enjoy performance and the mpg increases of the tuners. I'm looking into getting the spartan
tuner with dpf delete and have a couple of questions.
Other than the lift the truck is stock. It is a job 1 truck, 102,000 miles so just out of warranty. Has 3.73 gearing. I plan to do the 275 tune. The most I'll be towing will be a 9.5 pop up camper that weights maybe 1300 loaded (its pretty light) and a boat that I don't have yet but will still be reasonable.
My questions are:
Is this correct? I'll get a module to control the tune, I'll put a new CAI, and then then the dpf delete? I see a lot of kits adding 4 and 5" exhausts. Is it reasonable to run this tune and not add an entire new exhaust or is it beneficial? Do I get ride of the cat as well or is that part of the dpf?
The guy I bought the truck from has immaculate service done at a dealer. Is there anything I need to do when I put the mod on? Like change the transmission oil or beef anything else up?
Not really sure I understand the EGR delete portion yet. Can someone explain that to me a little better? Is that something I have to unplug and the tuner will compensate? Or does the tuner adjust automatically the EGR?
I plan to get it shortly after I get my license plates so not too much longer. Come on Christmas to me. lol
