First off, was the install all that difficult? and about how long did it take? Was there any additional stuff to buy besides the kit? But MOST importantly, was it worth the investment? I mean hot, nasty, badass speedwise? I know it spools faster and egt's are lower, I wanna know if the power increase is worth the money?

Not to be a smart ass (I have nowhere near the setup you do) but I think you may want to look into a tranny at the same time. Twins add some ass from what I understand.

im finishing my install this week. i did alot of reading before buying a kit and it seemed to be the safest way to make big power imo. the install is fairly simple just take your time. the downpipe is the hardest hard, but yours should be a little easier to access/get off

The install is a task for the average guy, you'll have more time in it then most will tell you since our LMM's are so damn hard to work on, I would guess 10-12 hours or even more, maybe 15. My MPI kit came with everything you need.

Was it worth it? Deffinetly IMO. Power is awesome, spool up is a bit slower then stock, EGT's are rediculously low, meaning you can tow heavy on real big tunes which I love. I would do it again for sure, plan on doing the same to my next truck.

for DD/ towing there is NO downside to keepin the stocker, The big charger just enhances everything
