Purchased, Now the mods

Purchased 08 King Ranch 70K Job 3 today. I want to put the intake, tuner, and exhaust on. I think Im going with the H&S mini max tuner. There seems to be many options of intake and exhaust. 4" or 5"? Muffler? Bungs? What the better intake? I noticed there are some problems with some intakes causing engine light. Could I please get some professional opinions!

With the tuner, you just have to pick whichever one has the options that you want. With h&s and spartan you don't need an exhaust with bungs. Not to sure about sct. I am just using an afe drop in filter and it works for me & the way I drive. I would imagine if you plan on putting it to the floor alot then you should look into a CAI. S&B and Afe seem to be pretty popular but there are others as well. I went with a delete pipe for the first while but recently switched to a 5" dp back exhaust without a muffler. I like the way it sounds but.

Should I get turbo back or downpipe back? It does have to be 4" off the turbo anyways, right? My 7.3 was loud with 5", how is 6.4?

I just went with 5" downpipe back. If I pull the cab for anything I will install a 4" downpipe but until then I will just stick with the stock one. I think it sounds pretty loud but in a good way. I am going to see how loud it really is when I tow my camper on my days off in a week.

one thing to consider is the warranty. if you still care for it then a downpipe back is easier to replace than a turboback.

5 inch exhaust for max flow.

mini maxx features shift on fly. important to switch tunes when towing.

I have ordered H&S Mini maxx, S&B Intake, 5" dp exhaust without muffler and without bungs. What will the EGR delete do? Ho does that help? What is the best way to mount the Mini Maxx?

Congrats on the new rig! Looks like you have done some research, that list looks good. H&S Mini is an excellent choice and what we recommend most. As far as 4" vs 5" for exhaust, thats a personal preference. We sell more straight piped kits than anything else and most guys like the way the 5" sounds. No bungs are necessary with either kit. For the intake, I recommend going with S&B. With the H&S tuner, you wont have any codes or check engine light to deal with. Feel free to give us a holler with any questions or concerns. Below is a link to our most popular packages.

This item "5" downpipe back kit K5368S", is it straight pipe no muffler or bungs? Easy to install and look very similar to factory at the outlet?

Straight pipe, no bungs, no muffler. Easy to install, similar to factory exit without the ugly dual outlet.
