Injectors, down pipe - cab removal?

Gents,

I have heard, for some modifications, the cab must be removed on 08's. Couldn't remember for sure but thought it is required if aftermarket injectors are installed. Is this correct?

Also heard DP would also require cab removal or at least tranny removal?

Thanks,
Lane

Lane,

I have heard both on injectors, that the cab needs to be removed and/or that it can be done without removing the cab. So I can't give you a clear answer, but after doing with the up-pipe with the cab on, you can bet that I'll be doing the injectors and whatever else with the cab off it will save you a world of headaches, stripped bolts, and busted knuckles.

Speaking of the downpipe, I have had looked at it first hand (had to remove it to get the up-pipe off) and there is nothing more that can really be done about it, its 4", mandrel bent, and its all already pinched down on the end because its so tight between the tranny bellhousing and the frame.

Now if you want to talk about where some performance can be gained, its in the up-pipes and exhaust manifolds

Thanks Julian,

Just trying to get my ducks in a row and find out what will be required before the power surge arrives here in a few months.

Lane,
No problem and I know you have had your fair share of tranny problems, at least thats I understood from the stories I was told , but this tranny is holding up well to the power increases, but if your planning to do injectors, take the cab off anyway, and you have the green backs to do so, it sure as hell won't hurt to do a tranny upgrade.

However, I heard through the grape vine that Spartan may be teaming up with Suncoast to come out with something special

I've heard the same with these trannies - good so far.

Although, I will probably add a TQ and billet shafts when the power gains are here just for peace of mind and all the towing I do.
