    Ok, I've pretty much settled on a MM3 tuned by Ray at Double R Diesel. He gets great reviews and seems to have superb customer service.
    He's come out with a tune that allows you to leave your factory emissions equipment in place, but shuts off the EGR and prevents regens. So basically all you need to buy is the MM3 unit (which is also your gages). However, he doesn't recommend leaving the DPF in place if the truck has over 50k miles, which mine does. So i'll need to buy an exhaust which I want to do anyway.

    Now i just gotta decide when to pull the trigger. My wallet is still sore from the $1,100 I just spent to have the stupid EGR cleaned.

    Sh!t... I just bought a 2014 RAM 2500 with about 80k on it. I did the CCV filter, fuel filters, etc. shortly after I bought it to set my own baseline, not trusting the dealer or previous owner to have done actual maintenance. I have not seen anything recommended or highlighted relating to the soot cleanup though.

    Any chance that was only certain model years before DEF came into play?
    The years have been kind, it's the weekends that have done the damage.

    Nope , that's why it says perform service , and the manual says to take it to your dealer, Dodge number 1 has only been to the dealership for recall work , and shes got 364,000 on it and running strong , love our dodges

    Right, but on mine the perform service message, according to the book,said it was the CCV filter replacement needed, nothing about soot cleanup.

    Maybe the whiskey is clouding my judgement here. Are you saying no dealer service required, or be ready to pony up?

    I wouldn't pony up yet , but that's me , they recommend the removal and cleaning of your egr , egr cooler, when replacing the ccv filter ,that hasn't changed with newer DEF .I would do it your next interval along with the turbo cleaning, but that's me , cleaned way too many at 130,000 for the first time, that really didn't need cleaning even at that point , but it doesn't hurt anything to do it either , except your wallet if you don't do it yourself

    Being big in the diesel performance world I'll just say this... if it's working, don't touch it. As soon as you go start messing with these stupid a** high strung emissions systems you'll open a can of worms that is going to cost you money one way or another. Leave it alone or delete it. I prefer the latter, but warranty isn't important to me.
    If you'd like to talk some, pm me, I'll give ya a cell #. One of these days when all the other projects are complete I'm gonna start the build on my new '17 Cummins. Right now it's a game to see how long I can make the emissions last and the VGT actuator from failing. I broke my own rule by buying a newer post emissions diesel, and I've learned a lot from a few builds. I miss my VP44 tucks... lol
    If ya can't tell, the only reason I'm a pilot is to support all my bad vehicle habits... this was the last 2nd gen build, my personal truck. 578hp, 1003ftlb freight train.


    Notice a theme...? Lol

    Just read this thread all the way through... sorry.
    If you're wanting to delete, look into the new EZLynk. I like ray over at double R, but he does some weird stuff for tunes. I'm not a fan of the race me tuners, I see that a true ECM unlock in the long run lasts longer. Plus, I like being able to just throw a cell phone up there for gauges so there's nothing hanging around the truck to be stolen. Also, having instant tune updates is freakin cool.
    If you're not a member on Cummins forum.com, do it, lots of good info that's been beaten to death over there.
    Since your truck is a DEF truck, your egr system should be relatively clean. That's on of the few benefits. With def there's less egr circulation than pre def trucks since it's making the exhaust work for you finally. If you go with a double r egr delete, you're gonna use about a tank or more def fluid every 2-3k miles depending on how you drive since you're asking more of the system with no egr. It's that whole no free lunch kinda deal...
