Yep don't waste your $$$ on a banks chip and only do a chip if you are going to do the delete option. Either way you run the risk of voiding your warranty so if you do it why not go full pull and get all the benefits with a full delete. Plus no matter how you shake it a chip is going to effect the DPF. Look at Spartan they have been proven!!!!

The only thing to expect is that it's going to leave your wallet a lot lighter and leave you unhappy; especially if you drive a Spartan tuned truck later on.

Banks...... Now when it comes to your later models maybe. But they haven't done anything as far as custom tuning. You can't expect to stay in competition when the market is adapting custom tuning. Banks is get what you buy and then nothing else and even that is small in comparison. SCT, Spartan, etc.. all make room for improvement or find it atleast. Gale if you see this take a word of advice. CUSTOM TUNING IS WHAT YOU NEED TO SURVIVE!.
