Question INTAKE AND EXHAUST 97 PSD

Hows it going everybody? im new to the site and i was trying to get some input from you guys if you can help. I have a bone stock 97' f350 crew cab long wheel base 2wd and i was wanting to put a cold air intake, exhaust, and bully dog 6 position chip. Can someone please recommend a good intake, also i dont want to completly replace my exhaust what do yall think about punching out the catyletic converter and possibly just removing the muffler. I dont want it super loud i just want it to sound more "THROATY" if you will.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Alot!!!!

Thinking about just cutting off my cat. converter and replacing with a section of pipe and leaving the stock muffler and exhaust pipe! What do yall think about that? Will it sound ok?

you can just cut of off, it will make it the turbo whistle louder but it wouldent be as loud as if it were straight piped and ive heard good things about tymar intakes but i cant afford anything like that so im going to use some PVC pipe and a NAPA filter haha

Man I guess if you got the money.
Cost $60ish at Napa for great filtration and better flow.
Get:
6637 air filter
4" hose clamp(or 2 smaller ones put together)
45* 4" exhaust elbow
Install:
15 minutes....Remove factory air box. Attach 45* elbow to air filter. Slide elbow into existing intake tube to turbo. Tighten clamps and your done.

That factory "underhood scoop" is a big bottleneck. You can't really beat the NAPA 6637 filter for money and airflow and ease of install.

For the exhaust, cut out your cat and muffler and replace with straight pipe. It doesn't make it obnoxious like a gasser it makes it loud at just the right times.

Nope. These engines don't like all the backpressure that a gasser does. Probably 75% of us are not running cats or mufflers. Some even run 6" straight pipe exhaust so don't worry about backpressure.
