Installed some parts...LOOOOOOOOL

I installed a H&S BlackMaxx, 5" SS Flo-Pro Exhaust with a black MBRP tip, and the new AFE Stage 2 Si intake.

The BlackMaxx and exhaust parts are perfect. Everything fit perfectly and the instructions were good.

The intake however is the biggest pile of crap I have seen. Lets just say I needed to coax part of it with a sledge hammer lol. The fitment is horrible, I mean I feel like the designer took some crayons and drew out the design without taking a single measurement.

Ok moving on to how the truck performs. It is hilarious lol. The truck does things that a truck shouldn't do and pours out enough smoke the that EPA is standing outside my door already lol.

Oh and 4x4 launches are enough to give me a concussion lol

Glad to hear you are liking your truck now! I never stop being amazed at how well the 6.4L runs after some good tuning and exhaust is installed. I love seeing the face of guys that just drove a properly tuned 6.4L for the first time. It's priceless!

I feel you pain on the intake, i think it needs to be trimmed down on the bottom end where it hooks to the air inlet but i just kind of wedged mine in there.

This truck continues to impress me. I had a run in with a CTS-V and he decided to launch on me and it didn't end well for him. I pulled him hard and the driver got a kick out of it and was dying at the next light from laughter.

Have you tried the "hot damn" tuning yet?

If not, you should!

We are also playing with a few new tunes that should be released in the next month or two. There is so much room to play with these 6.4's it is amazing.

I still get a kick out of taking people for rides in my 08 with 40" tires, and getting sideways through the first few gears. I need to be careful, or i may be wiping some excrement off the leather.

Yeah I am running the Hot Damn tune and its great. My only concern is I have noticed that the 1-2 shift is extremely firm and the 2-3 is decently firm and then 3-4 shift is as smooth as butter. I dunno if its normal or not. I have down several WOT runs up to 80 and I dunno if I need to do more or is that the nature of the beast.
