Exhaust for sure. It is cheaper and when you do get the programmer you will be able to keep your EGT's down.

I don't think you'll throw any codes, diamond eye, mbrp, silverline, they're all kindanthe same in my opinion. Aluminized steel is fine. .02

One last thing will i have any problems with inspections. In Louisiana in the parish that I am in they plug the truck into a computer for emission test.

If you don't have any cels, you should be good. Do they do a "snap test" down there?

Cel=check engine light.

I don't think straight piping a lbz will throw any codes, but I'm not sure, hopefully so done can chime in and verify.

I am picking my truck up friday and have about a 300 mile trip back. Then im going to find a local shop to put the pipes on and probably go head and order a tuner, i'm liking the Edge Evolution as of right now, then looking in to a in-dash dvd. Easy spend money on these trucks im learning but its a addicting!!! :):D:)

So the Exhaust turbo back or just put a High flow muffler, I have been talking to some shops and getting mix messages! What the impact or both or is there another system?

Do the whole exhaust, just a high flow muffler wont do much on the stock exhaust

factory truck has either a 3 or 3.5 pipe need at least a 4 to really get the power rollin. good luck on the downpipe i didnt replace mine bc i was told it would require lifting the cab off the frame and that sounded too much like work lol.

who told you that? :rof


it's not a easy install, but you certainly don't need to take the cab of the truck dude.
