Interested in deleting my 16 eco diesel? Anyone have one? Worth the money? Is it a total nightmare to do? What is the best way to do it yourself? Are there any significant extended warranties on issues that would cause me to want to wait to do it?

If you do either a EGR or full emissions delete any remaining AEM warranty will be gone, it covers pretty much everything that handles air, fuel or exhaust for 4yrs/40K miles from when the update done.
The EPA has cracked down on all the stateside tuners, you'll need to look north of the boarder to HD Diesel Supply.
Avoid Reckless and SFT for tuning, lots of reports of problems with tunes and lack of customer support.
You can stay legit as Green Diesel Engineering make an EPA compliant tune(49 state legal due to CARB not following the rules). It's a vast improvement over the stock tune, but the truck needs to already have the AEM update (there's usually sticker under the hood).

I have an OEM ECU for sale if you want an extra. Makes swapping before going to the dealer much easier.

A lot of folks will be hesitant to talk about it or give advice on the forums since they are scared of getting in trouble
