Quick Question

I'm about to order my TW chip , but I dont have my exhaust yet. My question is, when I order my chip should I or should I not click that it has exhaust? I'm not going to be getting my exhaust for another few weeks, and when I do get my exhaust (5inch turbo back straight pipe), will I need to have my chip reburned or does the exhaust not matter? Basically, does it matter if my truck has the bigger exhaust or not? Does the exhaust change the effectiveness or power of the chip? Should I check exhaust since I'll be getting it soon or does it not matter? Any help would be great. I'll be ordering my chip tomorrow afternoon so I hope you guys can help me out before then!

Click that you have exhaust, bc you will need to get it reburned (IF it needs to be reburned even though it's just exhaust.....)
Basically, it's a preventative thing. And they're making sure you have the supporting mods.

Click that you have it, and keep your foot out of it until you get the exhaust.
Install exhaust, and keep your foot out of it. lol. jk, foot to floor 24/7

I got another quick question to throw in with the last one. Since I usually don't have a lot of time to let the truck warm up in the morning, and my commute is usually really short (its warmed up about 3/4 through my commute) Would getting High Idle be worth it? I was thinking if i got High Idle, when I hopped in the truck every morning switch it to High Idle to let the truck be a little warmer before I take off. You think thats a good idea? Or would it put stress on the engine if I did that 5 days out of the week? If I don't get High Idle I'm still short 1 tune

My choices so far:
Stock
High Idle
Daily
Tow
Street
Extreeme

It's better to idle high than to idle low. It causes cylinder wash.
It's also better IMO to let it idle for a while to operating temps than to drive it cold.
