if your truck is a 6.0, some backpressure actually helps the EGR system operate, this is something we are just learning with the new calibration...

If its a 7.3, It doesnt really matter, so you can run it completely strait with no worries........Marc

Straight pipe it. Talk to us with your diesel questions. We'll set you straight...literally! Guys who know nothing about diesel tend to think that the same principles with gas engines go with diesel. They still think they have spark plugs for goodness sakes!

a little more air....a good intake with a prefilter if it's a real high flowing one....a chip helps too, 35's don't...lol

The 7.3's aren't too bad, but the 6.0's sound better with a muffler I think.
