Should I...
- Install additional gauges(i.e. pyro, boost, engine oil temp, ect...) suggested to spot engine trouble earlier.

- DPF Delete to improve fuel economy... I'm worried about passing emissions and if its even worth it, or just install all new larger exhaust system?

- Bully Dog tuner... not looking to produce huge black plumes of money out the tail pipe, but just improve performance while towing/hauling and everyday driving, will this do the trick.

- K & N cold air intake... I had major improvements in my 5.3L Vortec, will I see the same with a diesel?

On another level, the truck came with oversized tires, 285/70R17, will this help or hurt fuel economy and performance?
