Traction bars or Full exhaust and EGR delete??????

I'm looking for people's opinions on either doing Newton`s 5.5" traction bar block combo or putting on a full turbo back 5" exhaust and full EGR delete with intake elbow and intercooler pipe. What do you think the best thing to go with first if you could only do one or the other? Right now I'm leaning toward the traction bars to smooth out the hard shifts.

If you care about your engine and having money for the traction bars. Delete the emissions first

Didn't mean to sound harsh. Just get that junk off first then worry about other mods

Ok. If I say I could swing the $250 for the EGR delete with either way I go. Then what would you go with? Its my daily driver and don't tow anything very often.

I'm pretty sure you will need to delete the dpf in order to delete the egr. Either way I'd delete dpf egr way before I put traction bars on

EGR delete can be had for much less than $250

Sorry should of said I all ready have what is done in my sign. I`ve got a H&S XRT pro running the 300hp tune, Edge CTS gauges, S&B intake, and a DPF delete pipe in the stock ehaust. Now what do you think???

So where do you get the cheap egr deletes from. When I said $250 I was think of the delete plus the intake elbow at the same time.
