Depends on what you go with..
Type of pipe..size...muffler...length... tip.... what tuner...what tuner mount.... egr delete... cold air intake...air filters...etc...
Like I said...dizzy..
Seen everything from 900 to 2800...
I settled for a $1300 kit (tuner/full pipe w/muffler, egr delete) plus a couple extras (tuner mount)

I did my 14' chevy 3500 at 88,000 miles when i had 6 codes about the stock fuel system.

I paid 2500.00 for everything. I was at 13.1 mpg then drove off the lot at 19.1 mpg. I was initially not into speed at all in this truck due to it being a long bed. But i gave a brand new f-150 and Audi a run for their money the other day not bragging just cannot believe how fast the truck has become. I turned my fuel up to 5 and can roll just a little bit of black smoke. Truck runs clean.

Done for tonight... putting in New pipe, egr delete tomorrow morning..

I got my delete stuff for my last cummins from this guy...

http://stores.ebay.com/Diesel-Perfor...p2047675.l2563

He is in Burleson, TX. I messaged him and he answered all the questions I had, was very professional and even met me in burleson so I didnt wait or have to pay for shipping. I believe I even brought him cash and saved him the ebay fee as well... so it was a win win for both of us.

I will definitely be using him again. Although I dont know if he sells EFI Live, but that will deffinately be the tuner I go with next.

Did it last night too. Got H&S mini maxx and flo-pro race pipe for 857 no tax and free shipping from thoroughbred diesel.

Like others have said hangers were the hardest part. Ended up cutting the front one.

I'm not understanding this.
The defueling is to prevent engine damage. I have defueling set on almost every pid on the programmer. Have had it chirp and defueling several times over the years and I really like the option.

I had mine deleted and an SCT tuner, huge difference. Went from 13.9 all the way to 19.1, and then I stuck my foot in it and its hovering around 15.6

I got the muffler and it's quiet enough but super throaty..
Got a dash mount but it looked cheesy so I'm going to figure a way to put the tuner in one of the headliner sunglass trays ..out of site..

Real happy right now.
Going to put the egr delete on maybe later tonight or this weekend.

I second this, wouldn't get a tune on a 6.7 anywhere else. H&S is old and outdated, not to mention not really in business anymore.

As mentioned before you will need to worry about the turbo on the hotter tunes. People have said to watch out for H&S because of the timing in their tunes but they say the same thing for Spartan and I have ran theirs for 120k miles. Just try not to beat on it too much for the sake of your transmission.......... The power is intoxicating on a tuned and deleted truck so it is hard to stay out of it.

I know it is, I run mine on the street tune and if you just press the peddle it will nearly lift the front tires off the ground...

That DPF goes against everything I ever knew about making an engine run at its peak efficiency... but I had no idea it was that freakin restrictive..
You can read and watch videos all day long, listen to friends etc.. but I was not expecting this.
I got new tires goin on her Friday... probably a good thing because I might play a little before I force myself back to stock/tow for the majority of my driving ..

I did because it said to.. I bought the egr delete kit because the H&s didn't come with a pyrometer and the kit allows you to use the one from your DPF unit

My EGR is gone. I can see all my Bank 2 injectors, and get to them relatively easy too. Also replaced the down pipe to keep EGT down. Since the Ford doesn't have an EGT sensor, and I didn't want to add one, I figured better safe than sorry down the road.

In all honesty, unless you want to fiddle with customizing tunes, H&S is the way to go. but I have found the 4 tunes it comes with are more than sufficient. Keep in mind, there are no more updates for an H&S as the company no longer is involved in programmers due to government coming down on them hard.

One thing I will add, with the delete, the #7 injector will not wear out as fast. #7 injector is used during the regen process to dump diesel into the exhaust during the exhaust stroke to clean the filter. That's why the 6.7 #7 injectors go out first.

I have had my truck deleted since 50k miles. I am at 115k now. Mine has done that ever since the delete was put on. Basically the turbo spools up to 1 psi, twice. I worried about it for the first month, realized its normal, and forgot about it.

One other thing that will happen, once you shut your truck off, I think its the fuel pump that makes a hum sound for 30 seconds or so. No idea why, just that it does.

No issues so far... other than my foot getting heavier...
Truck sounds great bit runs even better... amazing it was restricted as much as it was..

Have noticed a computer tick up in my mileage by about 2.
I'll know how true that is once my foot goes back to normal..

I still got the Egr kit to put on and got new intercooler pipes (see the other thread on those) to throw on as well.

One quick question in the H&S on the fly tuning....
Is it truly on the fly or should you be stopping and making tune switches...
Found threads going all directions on this but no real instruction..

I've switched on the fly, but personally I can't really "feel" a difference between any of the tunes.
It may be because I never added the CAI to allow it to breath better, it may be that my tuner is a dud.
I "feel" better about switching modes at a stop, but don't think it really matters.

I run around in tow tune and accidentally bumped it back to stock the other day and didn't realize it until I looked down and read it on the screen.

I keep in in tow tune because I "think" I can feel a little more power and quicker throttle response than stock mode. But only a stop watch and a drag strip would prove it to me and I'm not beating on this truck to find out.


My MPG's went up by 2 at first also, then slowly but surely fell back to normal. I'm not sure if that's the nature of the beast or driving habits changing back to normal.

My neighbor recently added an H&S to his 6.7ford and is driving in stock mode. He has been doing so with the tuner unplugged- which the H&S owners manual warns will revert the truck to stock and throw a code- so far (two weeks in) this has not been the case. Makes me feel better about someone stealing the tuner and leaving the owner with no stock tune to revert back to.
