I would say if you're just lookin' for mileage go with just the MP8, a set of gauges, and the DPF Delete... you'll be way happy with that

It is the most popular stack right now. By itself the Juice will give you about 1-1.5mpg. The MP-8 gives most people 2-3 mpg. I wouldn't suggest stacking the two until you do the DPF delete otherwise you will be in regen a lot.

the MP8 Shouldn't make you go into regen much more than normal all it is, is a pressure box

Anything you do will cause you to regen more often than stock. The MP-8 isn't quite as bad as the Juice because it doesn't produce the same power.

Most have been alright with the stock auto. It just wont take a 4WD launch too many times.

You should be fine, just use common sense. Mine is holding the Juice/MP-8 stack just fine.

All in all-to you experts out there-Kevin/Compcowboy etc.-a manula is uaually a little tougher than an auto? if so why? Whay upgrades to a manual can we make with teh 6.7's? Are there any out yet?

When people say tougher they are talking a LOT less expensive to fix and LOT less parts to break and a LOT less expensive to beef up. I can torch my clutch pretty easy. Sounds like the Autos can hold the stack but if you break it your in deep do do and I on the other hand only need to replace a clutch (most of the time).

On the 6.7's the stock auto generally holds more than the manuals do. When it comes time to tear into the auto to make it "bullet" proof you are looking at a lot of money $3000-$8000 depending on what you are doing to it. However a clutch for the manual is anywhere from say $1000-$1800 plus a couple hundred for the upgraded hydraulics.

thats what i am running Benzino, its a very good setup. You should be fine for daily driving but if you get after it much you will need a better clutch.

I just tried it out with the BD Triple Dog stacked on top. Holy Crap tons of go and smoke, but it sure runs out of fuel quick :( I really need a Fuel Pump and Pressure Gauge. And that timing rattle in the BD is very noticeable.
