If you wont be towing often and it wont be very heavy get a hemi. Save at least 10g up front and dont worry about emissions. Pretty easy decision in my mind. Hemi will last many years under those conditions. You out 10k a year on it, it will last at least 200k if not double that. So that's a good 20year plus truck for you. Either a hemi or diesel will last you about the same before the body rots or you just get bored of it.
You dont pick up any milage when you delete any more. In the pre 12my you may have gotten 2 to3mpg. Deleting is also very expensive. Takes a lot of fuel to recover the cost and at 10k a year you likely never would. Plus your loose the warranty the second you did so. Not really worth it to most people.
