got my 6.7 with 6sp Auto

Hey, greetings from CA. I FINALLY got my truck..... It's the '07 RAM 2500 MEGACAB. This thing has the quickness of the HEMI& the space to sleep in the back when I get in trouble.


IT's the laramie model with most of the options. Future plans to be lifted 4-6 inches. Maybe some computer upgrades.

Has any tuners become available yet????

Talking

DPF? Is that the EGR system???? I don't care for that SMOG stuff, especially from CA.... But I drove the 5.9 and felt that the 6.7 had more POWER off the line. AND much quieter.

Yeah it has the whole set of emissions stuff on it. The DPF is one of the big reasons the exhaust sound is so quiet.

I disagree. EGR is the worst thing to ever hit the diesel engine.

yes but EGR's can be removed or you can buy a truck w/ out one, then do performance, w/ a DPF system you can't remove it (yet nor can you do performance.

Enjoy your new truck.Why is everyone so against the DPF? Like its the end of the world,it really doesnt do anything bad,and cleans the soot without hurting power. Ill take a new 350hp truck with DPF anyday over a 150hp one without it,because thats about all you could get that would pass an emissions test if it wasnt for the DPF,you'd all be running 4 cylinders with AIR pumps and EGR laugh
