Up how should I start.

First of all new to this cool forum thanks for having me.
I have 08 2500 hd stock except for the 20" wheels that I would like to put on a few mods nothing drastic gauges, exhaust, tunner, lift pump.
I was thinking about deleting the dpf but I still have a ppe standard from my older truck (01lb7) my question is if I wanted to use this same programmer wich does'nt have the dpf delete option is there any other option or would I be better off selling this tuner and buying a different one.
As for gauges I'd like to get the edge insight any sugestions?
What lift pump would you guys suggest?
what exhaust with dpf delete would you recomend?
thanks in advance guys.

I would either sell the PPE and get EFI Live or talk to PPE to see if they can update your tuner to the DPF delete model.

Gauges I'd keep your Edge set up or upgrade to their CS or CTS display. The CTS is compatible with EFI live for power level changes on the fly.

Lift pumps Air Dog is a good choice or use PPE's lift pump to save some money. You can add a filter kit later.

Exhaust: You can use an AFE DPF delete turbo back system. Or use a standard DPF delete.

Airdog or Fass for your fuel system. Like stated above contact PPE and see what they can do for you. I would just do a DPF/CAT delete pipe.

Great thank's for the come back guys!!!
I did talk to ppe to see if it was possible to get dpf delete he said I would have to send the tuner in and it would cost $600 I guess they were going to up the horse power but still sounds a little steep.
thinking maybe just going with the edge evo race, heard good things about this tuner plus dpf delete and gauges.

I would just get a tuner to give you a custom tune for what you want.. just pay for a license.. As for the CTS I dont think it will be able to switch your tunes on the fly for your 08, but it is nice for gauges and can clear any codes if need be..I used Nick @ DURAMAXTUNER for my set up ECM tunes and TCM , couldnt be happier...Or you could just buy EFI and tune it yourself , but its might be costly .. Needless to say with EFI when you upgrade its just a simple tuning change..
