exhaust or chip?

I'm fixing to go around 3000 miles round trip on a hunting trip. I was wandering what would help me get better fuel mileage exhaust or a chip? If it is a chip would it be better to get the exhaust first even if the chip would get me better fuel mileage? Thank for the help.

i dont know if you will notice much of a difference either way, but your stock exhaust is big enough to flow prettty decent if you just gut/get rid of the muffler. there is some gains with a chip according to most people, but you have to keep your foot out of it and keep your speed down. and either way there will be modest gains.

^^^^ Your answer was little to no help. Perhaps you could elaborate some more?

I knew what he was getting at, someone else reading this thread may not have though. That was my only reason for saying something.

Acually its of great help...

Gauges should be the first mod. PERIOD.

"hey guys I installed my super cool intake! did it help any"

I DONT KNOW, MAYBE YOU SHOULD INSTALL SOME GAUGES TO WATCH THE 10k motor you have in your truck...

No.

The factory exhaust is well matched to the factory PCM calibrations. Just like the intake is...
