From what I've been told is a complete exhaust system especially the down pipe is what gets the egts down.

I've been told that you will need to remove the cab in order to take off the stock down pipe is that true????

4" downpipe, aftermarket intake elbow (EGR cooler delete as well) and intercooler pipe, and an aftermarket intercooler will help lower the EGT's.

You can get the stock downpipe out by either cutting it or shifting the transmission over some. I would just cut the stock one out.

What Jeff said, all of those mods will help lower EGT's and are simple bolt-ons.

Another solution that helps a ton is a water/meth.

Also, 1350-1400 is not hot for these trucks. I dont suggest staying at those temps for extended periods of time, but for short bursts, racing, etc, that is not going to hurt a thing.

Is it safe to install the EGR delete without the additional wastegate???
