DIY Intake and whats cheapes good exhaust?

I want my truck to breath a bit better and see if I can save some money at the pumps so I am going to do an intake and turbo back exh. on my truck. I am tight for cash so I am going to install the exh myself and build my own intake. Can anyone tell me where to find a good write up for the intake. As I can see its just a piece of 4" pipe bent with a 6637 filter on it. Is this right?

If anyone has any pics of a DIY can you post them please?

What exhaust system turbo back should i go with. Its not a show truck, I don't need stainless, it just gets muddy and turns yellow anyways, aluminized is fine. I am thinking MBRP. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Ian

I am going to go the PVC route on my intake. None of the muffler shops in town can bend 4" so I purchased a street 45 3" elbow and a female to female connector to glue to that. Both pieces have 4" O.D. so they should work. I went to Napa and orderer a 6637 filter and a 4-4.5" clamp. The good ones that are used for intercooler hoses on rigs. Can't wait till the filter gets here on tuesday to put it all together.

I got my intake from Tymar..basically a 6637 mod. The exhaust I did myself. Got the pipe from the local truck shop, a 90, and adapter and a chrome tip. Did my exhaust for under 175.

Alright intake done! I started with the PVC intake tube but wasn't happy so I went for the 4" aluminized exhaust pipe.

Parts used:

4" aluminized exh. pipe 45deg elbow - Gilberts Auto Parts - $20.00
6637 Filter - Gilberts Auto Parts - $40.00
Semi Truck 4" Flex Hose - Coldstream Auto Parts - Free
3 Semi Truck 4" Clamps - Coldstream Auto Parts - Free

Total $60.00

30 min install time.

Still need to fab up a mount to hold it still, then paint it. But I need to get a piece of flat stock for that. Pics of mount soon.




Intake sounds good!

For exhaust on the cheap i'd change the factory downpipe for one that isn't flat like a pancake like the stock obs downpipe is. Delete the cat and muffler with straight pipe. This should lower the egts some helping at the pump.

The factory exhaust is big enough. I wouldn't go to a aftermarket exhaust unless you plan on bigger injectors and a chip. then the pyro guage will start to climb.
