Default New to Dodge Diesel looking for mod advice

hey guys i just joined the site. i just traded in my Ram hemi for a 07 Diesel 3500 and love it already. im looking to get some mods. i want to get a programmer and have been reading the archive notes and everyone seems to give different opinions. i just plan to do simple mods intake and i want stacks for exhaust.

If anyone could give me advice on stacks, Intake and a programer it would be much appreciated.

Thank you

Which engine do you have the 5.9 or the 6.7? There are alot more mods for the 6.7 (deletes and stuff) compared to the 5.9.

The 5.9 actually has much better aftermarket support, but you will need to delete the DPF and EGR to run a tuner on a 6.7.

Let us know which motor you have, and we can get you setup with some fun mods that will make your new truck a blast to drive.

well here is what i have in mind so far. i want to do the stack kit however i need to perform the DPF delete which seems to be a pain in the ass. if anyone had recomendations so far on how to do this i would apprieciate it. also im looking to buy the EGR delete kit from H&S seems like a clean kit with billet aluminium covers. However not sure on what tuner to buy. it seems as tho i have to perform all the deletes and tunes before really even attempting to put the exhaust system on. if this is true or not please let me know

Thank you

That is true. In order to run a programmer, you will need to delete the EGR and DPF...and if you delete the EGR and DPF, you will need to have a programmer. They all work hand in hand.

The power and mileagegains after these 3 mods is incredible though. I highly recommend all 3.

are there any tricks or recomendations for doing the deletes? i plan to buy the EGR delete kit from H&S but my only question for the DPF is what do i do with the hard lines the go all the way to the DPF do i just remove them or do i have to cap them off?

You can run a programmer with the DPF intact, but IMO it's not worth it. Edge makes one for DPF intact vehicles, but ive yet to hear anything good about them (limited performance gains, more regens,etc)
I highly recommend the H&S Mini maxx or black maxx. You can use them with or without the DPF/EGR etc. Tunes are easily downloadable (to the programmer and to the truck), easy to use, gives you the option to monitor 4 things at once (I have boost,EBP,engine temp, and tranny temp displayed on mine) and has 3 power levels under two tune banks ( with advanced turbo tuning or without). You can also add Overdrive software for your transmission ( tuning for your tranny to prolong its life).
As far as the exhaust goes.. Just zip tie the lines up and out of the way once you remove the stock exhaust. If you do the work yourself, have a friend there to help you. It will make removing the stock exhaust and installing the new a lot eaiser.
As far as the intake I wouldn't bother with it unless you are making over 500hp(and in that case you will want to add studs, and a seperate savings account started for your transmission to your list of mods), the stock one has been proven to be efficient up to that power level, an i have yet to see an aftermarket intake perform better than the stock one on a mildly modified (exhaust and tuner) 6.7. I have searched a ton and the only changes that you will notice are a lighter wallet and the ability to hear the turbo spool louder (if thats worth the $300 to you, then by all means go for it) but you wont see any performance gains or fuel economy gains.
Keep your, EGT's, boost levels and Exhaust Back Pressure levels in check and your Head gasket will treat you good.

Oh and you will love the way the truck drives once you delete it.

Like said above, I highly recommend the mini maxx as well. I also just zip tied my sensors and hard lines out of the way. The tuner will take care of any codes from not having the sensors plugged in.
