Exhaust/Downpipe Questions WITH PICS.

I met up with a buddy of mine today and we started talking about my exhaust and looking it over. I think I've decided to simply purchase a new MBRP exhaust after some research and debating. The exhaust I have now looks like 4" with a 20" long muffler. Not sure on the brand...

Here's my questions:

1. From the pictures below, can anybody tell me what downpipe this is (which may very well be stock)?

2. I included pictures of the bungs I have. Right now I'm running H&S canned tunes but will be switching to a KEM 345 or similar. When ordering my new exhaust I plan on getting no bungs. If I have this right, those bungs aren't currently doing anything and I can remove them when installing the new exhaust system correct?

Thanks for the help fellas!

I have two bungs and both hooked up. Not sure if they're reading anything for my H&S mini maxx though?

Downpipe looks to be stock to me.

I had a feeling when I saw the crimped part near the frame.

I left all the sensors in the one I did. That way you don't have junk getting into the electrical connectors after the sensors are removed.

The Mini Maxx doesn't use any of those sensors/bungs.

that's definitely a stock downpipe, and the H&S doesn't require any bungs.

To avoid this, you just put them in plastic ziploc bags and zip tie them closed. That's what a lot of people on here do.

Thanks a bunch guys for all the help. I think I have everything lined up then.


Do you guys think this setup change sounds good?

CURRENT SETUP:

1. H&S Mini Maxx w/ canned tunes
2. Stock DP
3. 4" DP Exhaust w/ either a cat or muffler.


NEW SETUP:

1. H&S Mini Maxx w/ KEM 345 tune
2. Powerstroker67 Two-Piece DP
3. MBRP Stainless 5" DP back exhaust with no muffler/cat/bungs.
4. Performance Radiator

5. Possibly an aftermarket intercooler pipe
6. Possibly a CCV mod kit


Note: The truck already has the other houston stock perf. upgrades such as an EGR delete and AFE intake.
