Default DPF complete delete kit recommendation

Looking for feedback on COMPLETE deletes (tuner, exhaust w/muffler, EGR, DPF, CAI, etc..) for a 6.7 Powerstroke. (2011 F250)

what are the TBH recommendations and experiences?
Also, any installation tips would be welcome as well.

Not looking to roll smoke, or make noise...probably not spend anytime in "hot" mode..

I have a '12. Did everything you mention. H&S mini maxx tuner, straight pipe with muffler. Also new down pipe. Totally worth it, and you will end up running in hot mode.

I have 4 settings, stock, tow, street, and extreme. I am always on street. I believe its +90 hp, and running around 1200 ft lbs of torque. I put it back to stock the other day, its almost depressing how much less power there is on stock.

Got it installed at a shop off 290 or 45, I don't remember.

No experience with a for but i did a full delete on my 2014 dodge efi live by Ryan with 4" dpf delete pipe. Best thing you can do for your truck in my opinion. I leave mine in tow and drive it easy to be nice to transmission. You will not be disappointed in the difference!

I have Spartan on my 6.4 and love it. I read good things about H&S. Do some research on powerstroke.org I believe the 2014 down can chew up the turbo bearings on some of the hotter tunes so make sure to do your homework.

All I can tell you, is you will wish you'd done it the day you bought the truck.

I did mine at 19,000 miles when the guy at the Chevy house told me it was "normal" for the temp to go to 260 in Regen mode. No more regen mode. 224,000 miles later she still aint regeneratin....just rollin along.

The programmer is key. EFI live programmer is cheap, but only comes with 1 tune. Have to buy several of them, and last I checked, they were $500 a pop.

I have an H&S Mini, and the programmer was $2700. My total bill for the delete was $3200 I think, with some one doing the work.

Just did it to my truck 2 weeks ago, it's like a completely different truck. I got the mini maxx and a 5in turbo back with muffler from diesel ops and it was like 1100 dollars but this was for a 2011 6.7 dodge not ford but the price should be the around the same.

On my 6.4 I did the dpf delete and had the SCT tuner. I gained 4.6 mpg and loved the extra power but just make sure whoever does it knows what they are doing! The guy who installed mine forgot to bypass one of the temp sensors and it always idled really high and just thought it was normal but by the time I took it to someone else who knew what they were doing I had 3 injectors out and he said there was nothing they could do the motor would continue to ruin injectors plus some other things I don't remember and there was no saving the motor! So I would say it's great just make sure it's done right.

Look up the whole delete kit on ebay. I was shopping last week and a full kit was about
1K shipped to my house. Plus with a little mechanical experience and some simple tools it can be done cheap. The kit I looked at included the H&S mini max tuner, egr and dpf deletes.

H&S is what I installed on my 2007 dodge when I deleted the EGR & DPF. H&S does make a great tuner but they are no longer making product due to a law suit by the EPA. I would not recommend H&S because you are not able to update their tuners any longer through their website because it was closed as a result of the lawsuit.

I had my 2011 Duramax done this past spring with a H&S minimax. Expensive but no more problems. The gas mileage went up about 2 miles per gallon but run a whole lot better.

For the guys that delete, do you plan to private sell or trade in? Also for the ones trading in I'm assuming you have to return to stock?

Most dealerships won't take a trade that is deleted and tuned. Too many people tear up a trans or motor then roll into the dealership and try and trade it off.

Its a single tune from computer ( no tuner in truck ). Yes, I was told that the tow tune would be all I needed for driving around town plus towing. Its not a hot tune like most run. The only bad thing I see, is if I want to change the tune, I would have to take it back in.

Good information. Thank you.

I think I'd prefer to have a tuner with options though. I guess that's where it get pricey

1200 for my 2011 duramax tune and exhaust I did it myself. 4 tunes to choose from but just run it in street mode get about 2 mpg better overall. Awesome so far, have about 25k on it since the delete.

It really is simple. I did mine myself.

I purchased the tuner- sctx4 with 4 tunes
Ordered straight pipe. Dropped the dpf installed pipe. Loaded tuner and done. I've since gotten the h&s and now will sell the sct pretty cheap
I also added s&b air intake. It will flat run and I get right at 15mpg with 6" lift running 37's

After a ton of research, and making some calls...ive decided to finally get around to doing it. Going to do it myself.
Ordered a h&s minimaxx, a full 4" turbo back w/muffler pipe, sinister egr delete.

Another added benefit to deleting I recently figured out-
Cleaner "looking" oil, even with 5,000 miles on the oil- it looks cleaner than fresh oil with only 100 miles on a pre-deleted engine.

I don't know if it's the same on the Ford but be careful with Mini Maxx especially with the defueling setting.

What do you mean?
It comes with 4 preloaded tunes...wasnt planning on using anything over tow...
Is there something I'm missing?
Everything I've read/youtubed on the minimaxx and my truck was pretty glowing.... and pretty much pluginplay...

Lots of blown head gaskets on the Cummins with the Minimaxx especially when playing with the defueling settings.

Like I said I don't know if the Ford has seen the same issues but I shied away from the Minimaxx because of no factory support and EFI Live seems to be the better more customizable platform to me.
