Talking brother just bought a 6.7

hey guys, my brother just bought an 07 with the 6.7L in it.http://www.reddeermotors.com/db_1_tons (it's the 07 with the 6 inch lift and 58,130km on it.)
Just wondering if there was anything he should know.
he used to be a duramax guy and i have a ford so we dont know much about this truck. He wants to chip it and stuff and was wondering what would be the best way to go. He was looking at the banks big hoss kit, is it worth it or is there a better chip, or kit, or just a different path he should take?

and if anyone knows who's truck this was, that'd be cool to hear if there was any problems with it he should know about too. I cant remember where he said it was from but it was from around red deer alberta.

Forget Banks. Total waste of time and money. Tell him to get a H&S Performance BlackMaxx, FloPro turbo back exhaust, EGR blocker plates and a S&B cold air intake. That will be a decent start.

This guy knows what he is talking about. That is one of our most popular combos. If he wants to start getting a little crazy with the higher tunes he should also plan on a wastegate.

well, he said he wanted to get crazy hp, but then that night he ordered up a bully dog triple dog gt tuner, a mbrp filter back 4 inch exhaust and a afe pro dry stage 2 intake , even after i sent him to a couple links to threads on here talking about what tuners to get. Now he says he's all concerned about warranty so he doesn't wanna get rid of the filter and crap.
Oh well, you can lead a horse to water

Also, is that tuner gonna kill his warranty anyway or is it invisible if he puts the settings back to stock?

Yeah, that tuner will void his warranty too. The dealer will be able to see the vehicle has been tuned.

You're right, but they do have the "powertrain" warranty to 1ook miles.

Bullydog? WTF! That is the opposite of what he wants! And his warranty is pooched anyway, might as well make it run the way it is supposed to.
