Good evening, it's a pleasure to no longer just be lurking! I finally got myself into a 2016 LML Denali 3500, SRW, B&W gooseneck hitch, 35k miles. Traded in a 2015 Denali 2500 gas job.
I have always wanted a diesel, and figured the time is now with all the EPA crackdowns. I have already done a few minor mods, but am ready to go ahead with the performance mods.
I work in software so it will not be worked too hard. I pull a 29' Yellowfin and my wife/daughters' horse trailer occasionally, but nothing the gas truck couldn't handle. I plan on running an eco tune or maybe just a light tune, and set it to stock whenever I tow to prevent things from grenading. I picked the LML because I did not want to deal with the ECM TCM hassle deleting an L5P.
These are the parts I am planning on ordering: 4" MBRP straight exhaust ($390), Kory Willis Tuning (~$1200?), AFE CAI ($265), EGR Blocker Plates ($20), Fleece PCV Blocker ($50), Air Dog 100GPH Lift Pump ($600).
Am I missing out on anything? After searching the forum I figured I don't need the 150GPH lift pump for the little work I will be doing. Do I really need a lift pump at all for a light tune? Do the prices I am looking at look in line with what I should be paying? New to diesels. I am going to roll the dice on the CP4 exploding. I don't think it's a huge issue.
Plan on doing everything myself on my own time. I'm mechanically inclined, truck is not a daily, and there's nothing more satisfying than a few beers working in the yard or garage and not getting yelled at
