Do you have to have emission testing where you have your truck registered?

Well then, I would definitely do an EGR delete. The live wire is a nice all in one combo, there are some pretty informative threads here about that, just compare the cost of one of those to the cost of buying an SCT X3 and a CTS. Make sure you get the EGT robe, last time I checked the EGT probe for the livewire was pretty pricey. As far as intake goes, the stoke one is sufficient up to 500hp, but if you have the money and really want to do one, I would suggest either an AFE, Airaid, or S&B.

Had not ever seen or heard of one either until today. Saw this one on CL earlier.
