Lets Talk Exhaust.

I have been doing some reading online. Dangerous thing for my wallet, and my mind. I would like to buy an aftermarket exhaust kit, and intake. What do you guys recommend. I like a throaty exhaust. I have been reading alot about the MBPR, must be a good buy, lots of sites have them. I would prefer to order this from a member. I like to keep things local, as a business owner, local business is the best business. Most important factor to me, is better MPG, and punch from the line.

Keep the factory intake it supports up to 500hp and filters better. 2 I doubt local members are supported vendors, if your looking to buy an exhaust look at the vendors on the site and contact them. throaty I believe will be the 5 inch turbo back exhaust, also delete the cat and muffler. Done.

So maybe swap the stock air filter with a K&N then? A turbo back system, is that something I can do in the driveway, or do I need to have a pro do it. I am very mechanically enclined, and if I don't have the right tool, I can afford to buy it.

Don't do anything to the stock intake unless you are going to shoot for over 500 hp.

You can do the exhaust in your driveway no problem, no need on the filter change. like I said the stock filter and intake is just fine up to 500hp. You can do it if you want but the stock filter lasts longer and holds more dust and dirt in the end.

I'd thank your post with no reply, but there is no thanks button, only the quote button. Thanks. And to think i was about to drop 5 bills on an intake. Ill just take that 5 bills and buy something else for my Badd Asss TRuck.

The intake is not need below 500. You could do the zoodad to allow a lil more air in there. As for the exhaust, about 2-3 hrs or so in your driveway and you should have it done.

You dont need anything special except for a sawzall.

Save the 500 for EGR delete, or SCT tunes as well.
