some had it on the 6.4 and it did fine. As recall it was just tuning only and no HP/TQ gains. I also seem to recall they had something to monitor the vitals too, but I don't see that in the picture.

Monitors is important part of this.

Not quite sure what you trying to say. But sounds like all is dos is say hey never mind about egr and re gen. How it dos it exactly Iím not sure because yes I want my other monitors to run and complete so I know if I gotta issue And yeah no extra power but Iím ok with that for longevity and soot Unless I can find a clean tune like I got from gear head on my 7.3 for a decent price. Buuuuuut Iím from comifornia so itís hard to find a place thatíll ship here

He's trying to say the product doesn't add power. It's basically a 0 hp tune. Most other tunes add power at different levels like a tow tune, daily driver tune which may have more power than the tow tunes and performance tunes. Do a search on this section and you will find a wealth of information. It also sounds like it doesn't add any trans tuning to tighten up shifts. Basically it tricks the ECM because the EGR system and DPF are not there so the truck can run without CELs and problems. Good luck in your search.

By monitor, Senix meant a digital monitor to see things such as EGTs, rail fuel pressure, various sensors, voltages and other temps called PIDS. You can buy one already set up and use a physical cord that connects to the OBD2 port so the PIDS are displayed on the screen.

The other way is to use a phone or tablet to use an app like FORScan or TorquePro. Then you use a Bluetooth adapter for the OBD2 so the data can be sent to the phone.

All this info is available here. You just have to use the search function. Good luck.

Iv tried too look this stuff up on my own but wasnít having much luck of finding my info. and I work at a ford dealership so I got all the factory ford data on my laptop. I could probably even delete the emission monitors but donít wanna go that crazy and I still gotta smog. And yeah Iím fine with out any power gains for longevity but then again more power gains is always fun. But canít find a name brand tuner with dpf delete already down loaded.

That's actually pretty cheap and you would need the EGR cooler block off plates if you decide to remove it. Or just unplug it and it stays there.

I am also in the process of research for a potential delete down the road, if needed. All you need to do is look at this section and there are threads.

Another common flash tuner is SCTs x4 which is used to download the stock ECM program and upload the tune(s) to the ECM. And right down the list from this thread is this:

speakerfritz has a good reputation on FTE.speakerfritz has a good reputation on FTE.
Some 6.4 folks complained it created a false high fuel pressure error code and the manufacture knew about it but did not have a work around.
