EGT's CAC pipe or DP

Ok, so which one gives larger improvements to lower EGT's? Which one to buy first?
I intend on doing both eventually. I'm thinking about the CAC pipe, cause that pinch in it is horrible and it looks simpler to get at.
I already have an mini, delete, and AFE drop in filter running no lid on the air box.

The CAC pipe will be the one that will be more noticable for dropping egt's when towing. I just did mine the other day and I didn't really notice a huge difference under normal conditions but I will be hooking up to my camper on my days off and that is when I believe I will notice a difference.

I would say down pipe. I put the CAC pipe on and didn't notice much difference towing or not.

The down pipe. Because it's a crushed up mess inside.

Both will compliment each other very well but i would say down pipe first. Unless warranty is a concern then do the CAC pipe.

The downpipe can just be next on the never ending list....

I would do a CAC pipe, intake elbow, and EGR cooler delete before doing a downpipe. That's just me though though.

Sounds like you have your mind made up! Just go ahead and do the CAC pipe first, then the down pipe.
