The new duramax's are great trucks. Very reliable in stock form. Put diesel in it, change your filters and fluids and it should take care of you.

As already stated, put in the fuel, change the oils as pre schedules, and drive.
I change my oils earlier than required, but this is my last new truck.

Pretty sure H&S isn't selling delete products anymore, EPA gave them a pretty hard peepee slap, Edge got smacked too, I think DPF delete products are gonna be hard to some by
