Finally went for it

My truck is a 2008 2WD. I don't drive much so it took me 5 years for the extended warranty to expire at 60k miles. I've always liked the way it ran but the fuel mileage wasn't what I wanted. So with the warranty no longer a concern I took it into Performance Truck Products and had them install their EGR delete, Flo-Pro Dpf/Cat delete pipes, S&B Air Intake Kit, and an H&S XRT Pro.

After putting my foot into the throttle I suddenly could care less about mileage cause this thing absolutely hauls ***. Honestly, I think it might be faster than my 1967 GTO I had in highschool.

Once I get over the thrill of smashing the throttle, I'll back off and see what kind of mileage this thing gets.

Run the hot damn 300 and see what it does... Mbrp sells the passenger side inter cooler pipe and flo pro makes a polished intake elbow that make it run a little better.

He already has an intake elbow with the PTP egr delete kit. The CAC pipe will make the truck run a little cooler, but seat of the pants difference is minimal. Congrats on the "new" truck man.

Congrats! Just a suggestion but you might want to get something for guages.

What is a CAC pipe and why are guages recommended?

Anything over stock tuning runs a little hotter when you step on it so guages are a good way to keep an eye on your temps. egt, eot, tranny stuff like that. Just my opinion.

CAC = Charge Air Cooler (many people refer to it as the Intercooler)

I agree with superduty6.4 on the reason for gauges. The more you know, the more you can take care of your truck.
