4" straight piped exhaust, Cold air intake... The turbo will sing and the exhaust will rumble.

Ok, what will those set me back, and is there any certain brands I should look for? Also, what does a "cat" delete do, Im leaning towards doing the EGR delete bc I have only heard bad news coming if EGR cooler goes bad, head gaskets go etc., but what exactly is a cat delete and what is the purpose? Thanks

It eliminates some of the restriction of exhaust flow out of the motor, also will reduce your EGT's some.

A 4" straight pipe will delete the cat and muffler. I'm not into loud, so I just bought a "cat delete" pipe for the above reason.

I've heard that MRBP makes a decent system.:

MBRP Inc Performance Exhaust - Snowmobile, Diesel, Muscle Car, Exotic, Motorcycle and Sport Truck Exhaust Systems.



You might want to think about gauges also. ECT,EOT,Boost,Tranny,EGT, Fuel pressure.

Im looking for the triple gauge pod: trans, boost, and pyro... Should I get a quad pod or just stick with those three? Thanks

Good choices, Have you given any thought to a "Scangauge II" or an Edge Insight? I have scangauge II and it gives me most gauges except EGT (pyro) fuel pressure, oil pressure.

Both will also scan for codes and clear them for you.

Scangauge II = $160 (or so)

Edge Insight=$250 and up + EGT probe $79

Does anybody know where I can get a triple gauge pod, w/ mount and gauges and wires etc, for a decent price, or is it less expensive to buy it seperatley? I would like a tan one or a paintable one! Thanks

I would also look at the Edge Insight or Insight CTS. I like that you can do this and keep the grab handle.
