I was thinking of doing some upgrades to my 05 lly truck. I am specifically looking at the PPE Standard Tuner, EGR blocking plate, AFE Bladerunner Intake and a 4" MBRP exhaust.
Is it worth doing these upgrades if I am looking for better mileage and some more power?
Am I missing anything that I should also be considering?
Thanks in advance for any replies.

You are well on your way for great performance! Looks like you have a nice list of mods...all of which are beneficial. Also look into the LLy mouthpiece swap.

Not sure about the better mileage, but you will get more power. The mileage is very right foot dependent. I have the mods in my signature and my mileage increased a whopping 1.4mpg overall.

Those are the top upgrades to do to a LLY. You will be very happy with the results. If you have any questions I can help with please let me know.

Thanks Tyler

Definitely worth it. It will be a completely different truck with more power, better drivability, and improved mileage.

I have done those similar mods to my own LLY back in the day, and I can give you some first hand experience on what I thought. That is a fantastic place to start.

Before you buy the PPE, I'd look at the new Edge Cs and CTS tuners, that I have also used on my own LLY.

The tuning on the new Edge stuff is outstanding.

Please let me know if I can help.
