Welcome

You got a great truck there. First thing you need is a spare cam sensor in your glove box. For performance stuff I would reccomend guages first then a flip chip and exhauset.

welcome to the fourm! lots of good info here. they are great trucks, and will last a long time when taken care of, and are fairly easy to work on.

The truck has 320K, would it be ok to do the exhaust and down pipe? 3 downpipe and 4 exhaust with cat delete. Thanks for the tip on the can sensor, I'll get one. what gauges should I put in?

Thanks

That exhaust should be fine. As far as gauges... you want EGT for sure... trans temp if you have an auto.. and most folks go with Boost too, but it's not a necesity.
