Someone recommend me a setup

Hello everyone,

I've searched and read but still can't decide. I would like to upgrade my exhaust in order to get a little more power and reduce my EGT's when doing the occasional towing. The truck will be emission checked in Texas so I need something that won't light up the sensors.

Another question is whether to get the stainless or if the aluminized steel (can't remember if that's what it's called or not) will suffice. The truck is my daily driver and I don't have any intentions of chipping it out at this time.

I would also like to add a pyrometer with some sort of pod. Don't care to have the pillar guage set, would just like to have a single cubby pod. Looking for recommendations here as well.

I know this is a lot... tired of searching :-). Thanks much in advance.

He can get you squared away on exhaust. 4" turbo-back is what i'd reccomend. 5" is overkill, and pretty much useless unless your making a crazy amount of HP, and even then its not really needed.


Gus will get ya taken care of tho

If your not gonna chip it you don't need the pyro. I would get a tranny gauge instead for towing. Stainless last longer and is more expensive. It's also usually "shinyer" and stays that way longer. Personally I wouldn't waste my money on it unless you plan on flipping it over and showing everybody your exhaust.

Where in TX do you have to worry about emissions?

why not just get a dual pod and get the pyro and trans.

try calling up xtreme diesel, they always have good deals going on and they will match or beat any online price

I've got a Banks 4in with no cat and the Monster muffler and I get more noise from the 35's then the exhaust.

Hey guys,

Thanks much for the suggestions. Speaking of emissions, what are the texas requiremnts for emissions on a diesel? I know I had some serious issues getting my subaru to pass.

And as far as a pyro guage... well, I'm not looking to chip it right now, but who knows what the road may bring. I'm looking to buy a new Tahoe Q4 or Q5 next year which is what I'll be towing as opposed to towing the car like previous. This will weigh about 1,000 pounds less and so I'm not too concerned about smoking the transmission as much as I am about smoking the head gaskets.
