Good deal! What exhaust did you end up going with and did you leave the muffler and cat or get rid of 'em?

it would benifit you to have the exaust all the way to the turbo. if you blow through a tube thats 3 feet long and one inch diameter.....then one that opens up to 2 inches halfway down, and then a all 2 inch one, you will gain airflow each time....i would run the whole thing 4 inch and call er good

Congrats!

Well let's hear it - did you go 4" turbo to tailgate? That's what I want to do. Can you tell me what kit/parts you used? can you post some photos?

i took out the old stock muffler and cat and put in a piece of 4 in and then it goes back down to 3 1/2...its all i could afford right now. soon i will get 4 in from the turbo all the way back.

you can get those downpipes off of ebay for around 100 bucks.........the only thing is, noone makes a 4" dp........the turbo outlet is 3".......you can get a 3" to 3.5" then to 4"........or you can just get a 3".........either way you will gain......the stock dp is 2.5" and flat........so do the math......i just ordered an AFE turbo back exhaust for my truck........its 3" off the turbo, 3.5" halfway down, then 4" the rest of the way out.......no cat, no muffler and a lifetime warranty for 314 shipped to my door........cant wait till monday when it gets here.....congrats and good luck
