Flo Pro 5" - Opinons

All,

Considering the 5" Flo Pro stainless system and will likely be running it without a tuner for a while.

Anybody have experience with this system? Should I go with bungs or no bungs?

Also, I cant get the DPF pipe unless I get a tuner, yes?

TIA

first of all you have to have a tuner to run a pipe with no bungs. second the flo pro stainless rust a lot quicker than the aluminized. third you can only run a DPF back exhaust system without a tuner.

I understand that you cant delete the dpf without a tuner. Lets say I buy the DPF-back kit and then down the road get a tuner. Are you saying I cant run a tuner with the stock DPF? That doesnt sound right.

You can run a DPF on tune while you have the DPF still on and then if you decide to remove the DPF later on you can flip to the DPF off tuning if you have that capability on your tuner.

first off, i have a 5" flow pro exhaust, aluminum,not stainless. It has been great still looks new and easy to install.... second i don't think you will be able to buy a new tuner with any DPF removed tunes.....EPA.......so im hoping they can figure a way to get a decent tuner with DPF tunes that actually works.. at least as long as the motor lasts , which wont be long cause the emissions system will kill it prematurely....

Where did you get yours from? Is it full system, turbo back? dpf back?

Thanks!

i think you read my last thread, but make sure if you order a TURBO BACK that it comes with a downpipe, specifically ask them, because mine didn't...i got my exhaust from Rudy's for what it's worth, gave me a free tip and were pretty easy to deal with...i ordered my spartan tune on 12-24-12 and had no issues buying my tuner, but i hear it's any day now...

and yes you can run a tune WITH your DPF but you cannot delete the DPF WITHOUT a tuner...obviously the best solution is to just delete everything at once and tune it but i understand it's not cheap...
