Intake or exhaust????

96 psd all stock and I am going to get a wildman chip 4" exhaust with 3" downtube with cat delete also going to do intake. Would you do the exhaust first or the intake? I will be getting the chip in the next couple of months and will get all before that but I want to go slowly. You know budget........so which is going to be the most beneficial at first, exhaust or intake? Thanks guys this forum is the best.

I have been looking at the AFE Stage II intake and that is the one I am going with. Where would I find the best deal do you think? Thanks again for your help.

The first thing that I did on mine was a 4 inch exhaust with a 3inch downpipe then an intake and then a chip then guages. I would do gauges before the chip though but definitely do exhaust first.

I straightpiped the stock exhaust, added a DIY intake with a homemade box, Under 150.00 total, I'll do guages and chip down the road, Money is tight with 3.99 Diesel here.

I really liked the AFe I got it localy for $290 bucks they matched it to a internet price I found but look around you will find one about that price. deffiently more pep out of the intake the the turbo really comes out with a load whistle

I would do the exhaust first. The stock downpipe is very restrictive. You can straight pipe the stock exhaust and save a few bucks, but the downpipe needs to be replaced.
