I'd get a 5" Mangaflow if I could do it again. And you dont need an intake really. Stocker is just fine for over 500HP

I heard dimand eye has really bad fitment, how was your experience?
When i put my intake in, i wish i woulda left the plate under the intake in. I drove through some high water too fast and my motor sucked up some water, motor did not like this at all. smoked and ran like hell for a few min.

i love it when people ask about mpg! All the money we dump into these trucks and weir worried about mpg??? I put all this money in my truck to go fast, not to paw paw around. I honestly couldnt tell you about mpg, i always leave my truck ideling alot of times and never had a tank of diesel where i didnt get into the skinny petal.

Ah.....It was HORRIBLE!!! Only the tail pipe section though. The rest is good. Check out my build thread for some pics, but it was a little to short and was hitting the bracket for the hitch. That was about the only spot I could get it with out touching the shock or brake line. I ended up cutting it and dumping it over the axle, much better anyway. I still want a Mangaflow because they have the 5" front pipe as well.

Gonna depend on your driving. Its REALLY hard not to get into it. But I have seen almost 21 MPGs for an extended time, 280 miles, with cruise on 55-65 all US Highway down to the Keys. That included US1, which is a lot of stop lights and traffic. That was my 120 tune, which I daily drive now. You can see better mileage on the big tunes, if you stay out of it.

mine fit like a charm. me and a buddie tackled mine, had the old one out and new one in in about 30 min. my massive 8" tip shakes and hits the hitch bracket when i turn off the truck. I didnt realize how big that tip was when i orered it lol, so i said hell with it and keep it.
