newbie upgrades

Im lookin to start upgrading now (stock is boring) gonna start with the basic intake chip and exhuast. where can i find a decent price on a 3'' DP and what are the basic need for install. ive been told i need to either get a body lift or "massage" the firewall for the clearance.

right now it has a stock dp going to a 3'' pipe into a 5'' mitre cut stack. but would like to run a dual stack with 7'' dozer's any idea on where to find a dual kit or would it be batter to run a "smoke box"

what would the best chip be that will add the most power and will the stock clutch be able to hold it?

Your clutch going with nothing more than a chip on a stock truck is gonna depend on driving style, you can bend the pinch weld on the cab and clear the down pipe, I ordered mine from amazon, but lots of venders here sell them


No idea wth a smoke box is, but they tend to frown on having a goal of smoke round here, make some power with your truck, smoke comes later

Was able to remove my turbo, up pipes, turbo pedestal and put 3 inch downpipe on without moving the cab or moving the engine. I saw go with WW2 as I have one and so far like it.
