EGT's how to lower them?

I was wondering if getting rid of my dpf/cat delete pipe and running a full 5" exhaust draught pipe would lower my EGT's a lot? And if so how much if anyone has done it?

IIRC it will lower them by about 100*....
Also, intake is a very popular choice!



Water/meth will cool those temps down alot

You won't see any EGT drop with an exhaust system unless you replace the factory downpipe with a free flowing 4" downpipe. If you are looking for EGT reduction, I would do the 4" downpipe and at least a 4" downpipe back exhaust. I would then look in to doing an EGR cooler delete with a CAC pipe and intake elbow. You will see quite the reduction with all of that combined.

Do you have to remove the cab to do a down pipe I've been hearing you do but I read on here that if you cut it out you don't is this true and if you cut it out how do you get a new one in? I already have a S&B cold air intake. What does a EGT cooler do doesn't my h&s programmer have that turned off?

Don't know Jeff never drive highway hardly but I have my de-fuel set at 1200 and if I punch it, it will hit that around 55 or 60 mph.
