Thumbs down Newb questions

Greetings all,

This is a pretty great forum, I have been lurking for awhile trying to get educated on my 2010 2500 Duramax. It is currently all stock but I am about to hit the magic numbers warranty wise and I have some questions on which BPU's I can do with limited experience and money.

From what I have read on here and elsewhere I pretty much HAVE to get a tuner before I delete the DPF and EGR. I am thinking I want one that will hold four tunes so most folks are going to say to get EFI live w/DSP? Are there other options that work just as well? Does a tuner make big differences even without deleting?

If I decide to get a shop to do the deleting (DPF/EGR block) for me, not that I not capable of doing it myself, (time is always at a premium for me) what should that cost ballpark?

I have other questions, but that is enough for now, I appreciate your help!

If you’re happy with the truck now and want more power just get an auto cal and dsp5 switch from a well known tuner. If you care about mileage just remove the dpf. I think they still make delete pipes that bolt up. You can block the egr and reroute the PCV if you want. A transgo jr for the trans is a good idea.
