Exhaust info

Ok, i have a 95 PSD and im considering an exhaust very soon. I have been looking at Xtremediesel for an exhaust. I think im leaning towards MBRP 3" DP, 4" cat back. Ive heard people stray away from the downpipes on our trucks saying you need to smash the **** out of the firewall to get the downpipe to clear. Can anyone comment on this, it looks tight, but im just not sure how the MBRP DP is.

You need to replace the downpipe. Fit depends on the truck. I have installed two and only had to bend the firewall seam flat. They can be a pain to install, but the benefit is well worth it.

I put an MBRP system in my truck and I love it. You definately need the 3" DP, it is much needed in the Old Body Style trucks. You will have to do a little cutting and bending to your cab/firewall but nothing major and is completely worth it.

An AFE Stage II or DIY style intake with an open exhaust will wake your 95 up a bit... but they will really make you ready for a chip.

exactly, it's actually harder to get the stock one out then to put the new one in, the only thing you'd have to worry about would be if you had a manual trans, then you would have to cut 5" off the bottom of the downpipe.

let me know when your ready to purchase

Is it better to keep or eliminate the cat?

Most everyone gets rid of it.... depends on your state and regulations... If you dont need one, like here in Texas, then I would get rid of it.
