Intake & Exhuast

I find it funny that I log into a "Powerstroke Diesel" forum and there is an advertisement for the new Silverado on the homepage...odd

Anyway, I just purchased my first PSD, and I was thinking about starting my mods with the Banks Ram Air intake, the Banks High Ram intake and a Monster exhaust. Any comments on the what this will do for me? A friend told me that this may be pointless without buying a tuner or re-maping the truck.

You can probably talk to a few of the vendor's here who can help you with more specific selections for your truck. Banks is nice stuff, but you might be able to find a better deal...

Your stock intake should flow sufficient air to support up to 500 horsepower, so probably isn't necessary. What are you trying to accomplish?

Stock intake is fine, unless you just want something that is easier to change filters, then S&B is highly recommended as well as AFE setups. I run an AFE myself.

Exhaust, any 4" turbo-back will do. Banks is nice exhaust wise, but I'm sure there are less expensive routes.

You'll find on the forums that not many people are fans of Banks products, they're overpriced and underpowered for the most part. Their intercoolers are top notch and competitively priced, probably one of the only things I would buy from them.

I guess I don't have a goal in mind yet, I figured helping it breath would be a good place to start. I didn't know that the stock filter was rated that high, however, I wouldn't mind a ram air for the ease of filter maintenance. I guess out here in CA where diesel is $3.00/gal or higher a couple of MPG's wouldn't hurt either.

Thanks for the heads up.
So what kind of results do would you expect on a PSD from an intake and exhaust upgrade solely. More power? Higher MPG? Nothing?

you wont see much of a difference with just an intake and exhaust... no power gain you will feel, MPG may go up maybe .5 MPG

these are supporting mods for later down the road. Get a custom tuned SCT and that is where you will feel and see gains

Let me warn you bro, if you live in CA then you are subject to a visual inspection and smoke test. So, if and when you get an exhaust make sure you purchase an exhaust that allows you remove and replace the CAT. Save your money don't buy an intake put the money towards a SCT programmer.

Thanks for the tip, I haven't figured out all the CA regulations for a lot of stuff out here.

So what are some of the better SCT programmers, or I guess what things should I look for when I am shopping?

Matt at Gearhead Automotive for sure, hands down. You will also get suggestions for Eric's from Innovative Diesel too. I personally like Matt's much better than Eric's.
