Default Best way to spend 2000k on a 2012

Hey guys i just picked up a 2012 2500 laramie longhorn crew with the short box. I want to improve my mpgs as well as make it have a bit more power whats a good way to start? If i remove the DPF and something goes wrong will the dealer notice if i go back to stock before taking it to them?

if you only delete the dpf and the 2nd cat not loud at all. if you do a turbo back straight through than yes loud but not 5.9l loud.

It's a little plate that allows you to delete your EGR (right side of the block, little arc looking thing). I would I highly suggest you delete the EGR if you plan on tossing out the dpf. You're definitely on the right track there man, that's about all you need for deletes. Can't wait to hear/see the finished product.

It's not a bad thing, what it is is just the pipe needed to do the delete, rather than the full straight exhaust system. I would go that route also since you wanna keep it quiet lol
