Should I add any after market parts?

I just bought an 06 F350 with the 74,000. I am thinking about doing maybe just exhaust (Cat Back) until I get money together to do the headstuds. Then maybe a programmer after the head studs are in.

Any thoughts if it would be to much for the motor to do exhuast? Should I keep it stock until I get the head studs in?

I did so searching on the forums and really didn't see anything about after market stuff on a stock engine.

I've had exhaust since 4 miles and now just broke 60,000. My truck hasn't had one problem. Trouble code or anything from exhaust. It will be better for your truck. Lowers egt's alot with a full straight pide. Even if u do cat back Get a straight pipe from cat back and u will get A really nice sound. Worth the $$$$$

I'd do a downpipe back and delete the cat unless you need emissions testing.

Yes, the county I live in requires emissions testing.

I read on here that doing the down pipe will actually decrease your bottom end power???

well exhaust is definitely fine with the stock studs. and a few people still run sct's with stock studs. thats what i have planned and just run the canned tunes, nothing too crazy. i just cant decide if i should buy exhaust or tuner first. the snow and salt gave my silverline a beatin, but it lasted 5 years, just gives me a reason to get something new.

i dont think it decreases bottom end but i still have my stock down pipe with straight pipe from there. i just never wanted to deal with the hassle of trying to get the down pipe in and risk of it vibrating against firewall. that would drive me up a wall

Canned tunes are the tunes that come pre loaded on the SCT. you can have a company like Inoovative or gearhead etc.... write you a custom tune to load onto the SCT specifically for your truck and it'll run ALOT better and way more efficient
