Hey yall Im from VA and I'm about to purchase a 2012 LTZ that has every single option known to man on it - 43999k with 60k miles. I guess my question is what do I need to do with this truck as soon as I buy it? My last DMAX was a 03 LB7 which didn't have any emmisons crap on it. I just need to know where to start and how much money I'm looking to spend - I don't want a race truck just something that gets better mileage when I tow and sounds better. Like I said I'm going to be on a budget but I want to get rid of all the junk.

I'm in the same spot you are. I just purchased a 2011 2500hd ltz. I'm in Indiana though. My goal is to get a deep sound that isn't exactly loud (especially in the cab). Im not going to race it, and pulling is pretty much marginal. I'm looking at a 5" flo-pro exhaust with a muffler (downpipe back) but not sure of the best economical way to tune around it. (I'm happy with stock hp, would like better mileage).
Eventually do a true Egr delete (turn it off w the tuner in the meantime). Best way for a Urea delete?

Thanks!

I had a 5 inch flo pro on my cummins and I didn't mind the sound. I'm guessing ppei is efi live? Who do I talk to about that? I don't even know where to start. Do I buy something and send it to them or what?

I was looking at this thread, maybe it will help you. Explains about how to install and the delete. On the tunings, I'm a bit confused, when you buy them are they preprogrammed for exactly what you have done or I see where it is data logged and then emailed, or if you just want to tune around emissions one size fits all?

How do I get ahold of Kory Willis? I have heard good things about his tuning.
