    Yesterday I installed my Dpf delete with a 5inch flopro straight pipe and a custom tuned SCT all from Eric at Innovative diesel and this truck MOVES. I have owned tons for diesels from mild to wild and this 6.4 sounds so good :D. I have about 250 miles on it now and I am guessing I have picked up about 4mpg on the highway. The power is insane for just a tuner, well over 550 hp, the truck will smoke the tires into third gear. :yow!:
    Guess I just wanted to brag because I am excited lol
    I will post Pics tomorrow.

    I love the Cummins motor but not the dodge trucks ( don't get mad guys, just my opinion) thats why I put a Cummins in my 06 ford. I love this truck now that the Dpf is gone. I will give updates on mileage in a week or so.

    I'm a Ford guy, but Dodge is the only one to offer the Cummins in a pick up. Let see some pics of that Cummins powered Ford

    I also would like to hear how you are liking the dpf delete and tuner. I recently bought a 2010 PSD and have been tossing around the idea of doing this. I just need to decide if I'm willing to void my warranty.

    I will post pics and vids in a month of so when its all done :} the truck only has 1200 miles on it since new. The motor is a early 04 cr, should make around 800 on fuel and over 1000 to the wheels on the juice.
    I love the DPF delete on both of our 6.4's, they get better mileage, drive smoother and have a TON of power. My CC long box with a tool box runs consistent 13.20's in the 1/4 at 6000 feet above sea level. Our plow truck runs 12.90's with just a dpf delete and tuner, everything else is stock.Even straight piped they are not loud at all but sound good. Call up Eric at Innovative diesel and you won't regret it.

    I forgot. Stock I was getting about 14.5mpg. My last tank of empty driving I was getting right at 17.5mpg.

    Thats awesome. Have you had any warranty work done since the dpf delete and tuner?

    I "MAY" have put the dpf back in one of the trucks, removed the tuner and taken it to the dealer once. lol
    I can't guarantee you will be able to but I know a lot of other guys who have done it.
