2002 excursion advice

Good day Memebers,

This site is full of knowlegde and here I am asking questions questions again. I have a 2002 excursion with a banks exhaust no cat but has a muffler. Im curious has anyone run a full straight pipe ? good /bad ? does it help with mpg? also I have a superchips tuner and was wondering if there is a better one like bully dog ? I periodically pull a car trailer. Also I cant find anyone in Toronto Canada to install the pilllar pod guages , is there anyone on the other side of the border that does this like Buffalo ? any suggestions ? sorry for the questions but you guys have done it all and Im asking.

Thanks for the replies,

Come on Down !!!

it wont hurt anything to straight pipe it.. it prob would sound better... as for gains it will be very minimal.. nothing you can tell.

as for a tuner.. yes... their are far better tuners out there than a superchips... for a 2002 i recommend a custom tuned chip...

as far as gauges are concerned you could always go with something like a edge CS that will only require you to drill and tap your manifold.. everything else it can pick up from the OBD2 port...

The truck will sound better straight piped and the turbo will be louder. You MIGHT pickup some mileage like that.

YES, I have a buddy here in springville thats HUGE in the diesel competition world (Gambino Brothers Diesel). If you wanna meet up somewhere, I dunno the Galleria or something, I can drive you out to springville. It's in the middle of nowhere but they know their stuff

Also, do custom tunes. They will do worlds of difference for you.
