Want to Modify but haven't got it all figured out quite yet

Hey all-Ive been checking out these forums for a while but still haven't found what I'm looking for..

I want to get a better sound out of my 6.4 but want to keep the dpf and leave the computer alone for now. I would like to do an intake and a dpf-back pipe but I'm not sure which one to get or if it will be worth the money.

What is recommended for a good intake that won't throw codes?

If I just get a straight pipe from the DPF back will that improve my sound any?

Any opinions and anyone else with a similar setup?

Thanks in advance
Phillip

I doubt you will hear any big difference straight piping it with the dpf/doc in place the 6.4 dont have a ton of sound coming from it when there is fully deleted straight pipe from the turbo back! i think the intakes are a little hit and miss as far as codes go i think i heard the s&b did better at not throwing codes then the afe but i read stories on both saying they threw codes!

There will be zero sound difference going to a straight DPF back exhaust.

disappointed

Well, based on the the fact that I wont gain hardly any sound just by taking off the muffler, I guess I'll have to just save enough for a dpf delete and programmer...The biggest reason I didnt wanna do this is because of money and warranty issues (since i paid for an extended warranty)...

But are most dpf delete systems true bolt on? If that's the case I could theoretically just put the system on and off as needed if I need work done, right?

Any suggestions for a budget friendly setup? I dont really need a huge power increase as I think it's already powerful enough for my needs

DPF delete pipes are 100% bolt on. No cutting is required to get the stock system off either. Tuners are also returnable to stock and most are untraceable if you need to go to the dealership for anything.

I suggest waiting until you pull the trigger on the full package. A DPF back kit will give you little to no gain in sound or performance. The air intake will help some with throttle response, but overall isnt really worth it until you get the other mods ie. tuner and exhaust.
