What upgrades for affordable power?

This spring i plan on doing the diy tymar intake, and im thinking about a 4 in turbo back exhaust...i just want opinions on what exhuast to go with??

Also i am considering a chip and was wondering on peoples experience whether to go with DP tuner or PHP???

Any and all advice is appreciated and thank you for even viewing my thread!

just get the cheapest 4'' exhaust you can find, i think alligator has them for 231 shipped. you might want to get some gauges before you get a chip

for no more power than you are talking about just do a muffler delete on your 3.5 exhaust. save some $ for something else

how loud your truck is is entirely up to you. i don't have a muffler but i run a stack so its kind of hard to get one in that small amount of space.

I had the k&n drop in and it did not perform well as well as poor air filtration. Search tymar performance and get his donaldson filter set up. Excellent filtration and wide open air performance. Stay away from riff raft diesel knockoffs.
