Got rid of my cat and ordered a new pipe

So the new down pipe is getting put in monday. I dont have enough money to put a new exhaust on so thought by just starting with the down pipe and taking the cat off would be a start. Does anyone know how much more power that 3 inch dp will give me. Oh i have a 96 f-350 7.3 turbo. Taking the cat off helped alot and runs alot better.

Did you use a cat delete pipe or just gut it?

Anyways, the DP will help the Turbo to spool up faster and therefor a little earlier RPM wise. I guess you may see 1 MPG increase maybe. You will have a little more power but nothing to brag about.

You wont gain much HP, but the truck will breathe a whole lot better. A 3" downpipe is one of the best mods for our OBS trucks...

I did a cat delete. Will i gain more power with a 4 inch exhaust. Well anything more is better. I think the next step will be a chip or a intake. Anyone have good results with a certain intake brand.
