I hear that! That's just one more reason to love a cummins. No need for liquid urea!

Urea isn't to bad and will be comin to rams eventually with cummins progressing with the scr scrubbing
People think I'm nuts when I tell them I'd take a deleted 6.7 over a 5.9.
With a delete, minimal and dual disc or 09 is pushing close to 400 HO an 900 ft-lbs on just the mild tune

It will void your powertrain warranty. When they say "only the dpf and egr warranty", what they failed to mention is to prevent the truck from going into limp mode after the deletes, a programmer (H&S, Smarty etc... (Soon EFI LIVE!!!!) must be used. Programming the motor immediatelty voids the powertrain warranty. So if something silly goes wrong with the motor like a blown head gasket, turbo junks out, etc... they will search the ecm and find the tune (which always leaves a footprint), and void the warranty. Ive heard this from 3 separate dealerships. On cumminsforum I'd say atleast 75% of the 6.7 guys are deleted, even with brand spankin new $60k dollar trucks. Im going to wait until its paid for then delete, Id hate to have a payment and a repair bill at thye same time... My 2cents

According to most people cummins trucks will get better fuel economy once they're broken in. I say if the dealership is willing to do the deletes, go for it.
Same numbers from our 07...great mod!
