Exhaust only

I have a stock '07 that I use to pull a 29' toy hauler. It gets heavy when loaded with quads, water, gasoline and gear for a race weekend. It seems my truck is struggleing more than it should pulling the approximately 10,500 lbs. I don't want to do a tuner since it's on stock head bolts. My question is: If I did a new exhaust would I see much benefit from just that? Should I do a cat back or turbo back exhaust? Do all turbo back exhausts delete the cat?

the exhaust is not gonna make a diff.... if your not ready to tune it i would leave it stock.... just because your on stock headstuds does not mean it can not take a tune... a simple tow tune would be fine for it.... i would recommend a custom tuned SCT with innovative tunes and a set of gauges.... then the exhaust... i woudl go with a TB exhaust kit.. not all kits will eliminate the cat.. you have to either purchase a off road eddition or get one with the optional cat delete pipe...

hope that helps... if you have any questions feel free to ask

i tow a 13k trailer on occasion for the fire dept when we have water rescues.... and i run an sct tuner and have never had any issues and im on stock head bolts... the best rule of thumb to me is treat it with respect and it will return the favor.... raul wont steer ya wrong.. he is a very reputable dealer that many on the org deal with alot...

Thanks guys. Raul, with the SCT tow tune, how much gain are we talking here? My truck seems to be stugglesing to pull my loaded trailer, but then again it is very hot right now. Seems I remember it pulling better when it was cooler weather. Can you hook me up with the tuner, gauges and exhaust? Thanks
