What upgrades can you add to a 6.7L?

Im buying a 2016 6.7 Powerstroke and I was wondering what upgrades I can add and still make it through emissions. Will a straight pipe coming from the turbo pass emissions or do I have to keep my converter? This is in Maryland.

Why not just drive the truck some and see if you really think you need any of these mods? This is not your dad's 7.3 nor 6.0 engines and trucks.

What he said. Enjoy your truck, and it is good to stay stock for the meantime since your rig is still under warranty.

I did the dpf,egr and def delete recently. Also added a CAI and 5" downpipe back exhaust with a 30" resonator.

Truck runs amazingly well and is quiet.

Also have a 6" lift and 37's.

For over 10 years, I used to teach people how to drive their brand new Porsches at Road Atlanta. They would take delivery of their shiny new car and then Porsche would sponsor driver education events so the new owner would know how to handle their finely engineered vehicles. Invariably, the first question of the new owner would be, what upgrades should I do to this car. Even though they just spent+$70,000 on a new sports car, they thought the engineers missed something (like a special oil - OMG) that could be improved by a guy in a garage with an idea. Anyway, after two days with me on a track, they learned about what that new car could do and i guarantee they always walked away amazed. To be fair, once they learned how they wanted to drive their car - after learning all they could about the car in stock form - we would talk about enhancing something. Anyway, regardless of the equipment, learn it as you bought it, then note what you like and don't like, and apply those lessons. It'll save you a bunch a money and disappointment.

That being said, I changed the stock rear springs for a more compliant ride, supplemented with air bags. Next will be the EGR and DPF when the warranty expires - the inconsistency of the DEF fluid level and low fuel economy is my incentive. But I will make sure it is as quiet as stock - love a quiet sleeper monster motor.

Agreed. The 6.7 comes from Ford as a beast. I also have no clue on Maryland emissions as I live in Florida but I would guess that if there is any type of emissions testing going with a straight pipe would not pass.

I came from a tuned 6.4 fully deleted. Love the power of my 6.7 15. Doing nothing to it. Running it as is. Get some seat time in yours.

I've had my 15 F350 2 years and have left the engine stock.
But coming from a Spartan tuned 08 F350 with 5" turbo back exhaust putting out 525 hp and 1100 ft/lbs to the rear wheels; my stock 15 F350 seems totally gutless. The turbo lag is very bad. One big turbo compared to 2 small ones on the 6.4, and 25 psi boost vs 40+psi on the 6.4 make for lack luster performance on the 6.7
That being said I'm not going to tune my 15...for now anyway.
The 15 does handle and drive much nicer than my 08 and even my 12 F350.....just wish it had a bit more of the obnoxious instant power my 6.4 had. But that's tuned vs stock for you ; )

I hope that I never end up with a used 2007+ diesel truck that someone thought they had "upgraded". We pulled 15K# campers all over the US in the 70s and 80s with 200-250 HP trucks and never looked back.

We have moved into a society of never-ending-eternaly needy egos and competitiveness. That's OK if you have the need; i just don't want to end up with one of those spent toys. My assessment after reading Ford, Cummins and GM diesel pickup forums since 2008, is that there is a far larger number of these trucks destroyed after they were "upgraded" vs stock.

Just remember that if you use one of these trucks for 'recreation', it's not going to be cheap.

Maryland has no emissions testing for diesels.

Tuning these trucks hardly ruins them. I put 40,000 miles on my tuned 08 F350 running the 275 hp tune. Which pretty much doubles the stock hp to the rear wheels. I had no issues at all and the fuel mileage was alot better than stock.
Removing the DPF and stopping regens helps the engine.
