Best place to buy exhaust and tuner?

Looking to buy an exhaust and tuner. Any suggestions on where to order from. Who has the best deals? Also is SCT still the best tuner for the 6.0?

Many would argue sct is the best because it tunes the tranny. What's your budget? If your looking to monitor and tune sct livewire 9600/ tsx/TS can do both. 9600 is the more basic monitor but will still get your egts if you have a probe, oil and coolant temps, and few others. Tsx and TS are advanced and will cost more obviously.

Exhaust is arguable again... I'm a big fan of mbrp they are as cheap as 400 ish for aluminum and go up in price for stainless steel. Depending on your emissions and inspection will lead you to muffler or not.. And if your ballsy dropping the kitty in favor of straight pipe.. Obviously not street legal anywhere

Diamond eye is the cheapest systems I've found and do their job fine.

I don't really see any need for stainless unless you live in a bad winter area where salt is used alot. Or If you just like shiny stuff

One good thing about NC right now is we dont have any inspection other than a safety inspection for diesel powered vehicles at this time ...I'm sure it'll change eventually

I agree, Vivian sells sct (I recommend the 5015 livewire ts) and she sells diamond eye exhaust at very affordable prices. Welcome to Quick Tricks! Custom Tuners Miami, Florida
