    I'm running a H&S 5 inch turbo back exhaust and xrt pro programmer on my '11. No problems here.

    Did them about 5000 ago had problems with check engine light constantly on even dealer couldnt get it off. They would clean dpf egr all that and it would be out for a day. They finally said then were going to have to contact dodge about it. I had been thinking about doing it and once i herd that i said screw it. Ordered and installed later that week. They called next monday saying they had a fix for me that might work from dodgeI told them sorry i got it out on my own. Iwentfrom 17mpg if lucky to easly 21+ mpg. Oh and havent had any lights or overhead messages since. Truck runs 10x smother also. Love the high idle feature of the smarty.

    Dont own a dodge, but I did the same thing to my dmax. Was the best decision I made with my truck. Next for me is the egr block.

    I recommend this to any contractor with a newer diesel who has had it back to the dealer more then once which dpf and egr issues.

    I'm still only getting about 12.5 mpg, 16.5 highway. I do more city driving but overall it's mixed. I was averaging 16.5, 22 highway on my 06. My 2011 only has 10,600 miles on it so I'm hoping it will get better over time. One guys told me he had the same problem until he hit 40K.

    I went with Flo Pro 5 in turbo back no muffler, Sinister egr and cooler delete, afe bladerunner cold ir intake, and the Smarty Sr ME (ME is needed when you delete).
    Have the smarty set at sw3. Exhaust brake will work alot better also. It is very nice plowing with the exhaust brake when driving site to site with plow and about 1000 lbs of salt i run the exhaust brake and tow haul(so the TC locks up longer and exhaust brake will kick in all the way down to 1st)

    Check out cumminsforum dot com. They have a ton of information on deletes and the 6.7L. Before you post you should use the search function, there are hundreds of threads about the subject. There are mixed opinions on which is best (Smarty & H&S) but either way you go you wont be disappointed. When I finally delete my 2010 I'll probably be going with a H&S Mini-Max, Sinister EGR delete and a 5" Flo-Pro turbo back in stainless. Good luck.
