Curious

I just joined today and was wondering what kind of mileage can I expect from a 99 ext cab longbed 2wd with the 6spd and 3.73 gearing on the highway? I usually cruise around 65-70mph..

And I have been looking around at chips and air intakes whats your opinion on the best bang for my buck (brands)? I want to do both, but I dont wanna get into exhaust quite yet.I will be using it for a daily driver and tow my enclosed with it

I would say some where between 18-20 miles per gallon depending on terrian and wind and all those other factors you can figure in.

As for your upgrades, I would do a DIY Tymar intake, or buy the tymar intake kit. I would recommend gauges before a chip. I recommend at least straight piping your stock exhaust for now to make it more free flowing. When your ready for your chip or tuner I would think either a dp or ts chip would be good.

would it not be sucking in hot air off the motor with that filter set up? I like the fact it is easy to do and will cost less then $100 but will it be much better then the stock set up?

I have had a few supercharged cars and the rule with them was always try to feed cold air not the warm air from under the hood.

Remember I'm not doubting anyone ... cause I have no experience with Diesel performance... I have always raced and been a gas motor guy

Yes you will suck in some hot air, but the amount of air is greater then what your stock intake system is giving to your engine now so you will have a little better performance. You will be able to tell the difference in the performance as well. Plus you can alwaus build a heat sheild out of some sheet metal to block the enigne heat from the air filter to help keep the air colder as well.

I have a 4" turbo back straight pipe on mine. crusing around it isn't loud. Cab stays quite. You can hear it a little but not bad. even at full throttle it is not "retardedly" loud but can turn heads!
