I think your gonna like the truck deleted no matter the tuner. HS is making some really good power! I do like my smarty jr and for the guy not looking for high hp its great!

The XRT definitely produces more smoke on the higher levels, but on the 60 it is virtually smoke free. I have run both the Smarty Sr and the XRT on my truck, and while both have their many positives and very few negatives, overall I prefer the XRT. You definitely did not make a mistake, you will love how your truck runs now.

I'm gonna tell ya, I've heard and seen great things out of both. Around here it goes two ways. On the dyno's, XRT has been crushing Smarty's. Now on the track, I've seen the complete opposite, the Smarty's seem to be a little quicker on the track. Again, either way you and your truck win.

If you get the right clutch, you can run the 175 with just exhaust and intake. I'm not 100% sure the stock fuel system will handle the 225, you may need an airdog or fass system. Sootbandit's rig is set up like your's. SO I'm sure he'll chime in.
