H&s xrt

Putting my first XRT tuner in a 6.7 tommorow and I was wondering if there is any heads up I need on the project.... breaking sensors, special instructions etc

The plugs to the egt, and o2 sensors have a tab that needs to slid over before you can press the release, and pull them apart. Maybe that's common sence to you and most, but it threw me for a little loop. You shouldn't have to take the sensor out of the exhaust, cause you don't need them with the xrt. If your installing a down pipe, you will have to drop the crossmember. The factory one with the cat will not come out without dropping it. Don't even try, cause you will think you can, but trust me, you can't. You need to put a jack under the tranny to support it before dropping the crossmember. Just take the 2 big bolts out of one side, and loosen the other. There is also 2 or 3 smaller bolts across the middle, and a skid plate on the other side that has to come off. Then just let it swing down, with 2 bolts still in the drivers side, but loose. That way you can put it back easier. That's pretty much the exhaust. Are you doing the egr? It's pretty self explanitory, but I'm not sure if you have to do take the throttle body flapper out or not with the xrt.

Everything went and works well thanks for the heads up on the tranny mount you are right. With the XRT all you have to do is unplug the EGR and it turns off the sensor so it will not throw a check engine light.
Once we get the truck on the Dyno and do some mileage runs I will post them here for eveyone to see.
The power seems to be smooth and it seems to pull pretty hard so next will be to get some real #'s

Unplugging in my opinion, is just a "good for now" kind of thing. You can still get enough pressure to force the egr open even though it's unplugged. Taking it off completely is the best way to go in the long run, but plugging it back in is definatly easier when you need to go back to stock. The xrt will still do it's thing either way you choose, but in just my opinion, it's better to take it off. Glad you got her done though, and happy to hear good results.
