Just finished installing all the above equipment, plus the H&S EGR plate with bung. Went with the Sinister because of the cooling hose and no plugs, seemed to get a lot of great reviews from this forum. For anyone else doing a full delete, have a spare gallon or two of radiator fluid for the final steps! I drained all I could into a 5 gal bucket and strained it when I re-used it. What I didn't plan on was losing a half gallon or so when I lifted the EGR cooler off the motor. Big mess easily hosed off.

5" Flo-Pro ordered from Alligator Performance (military discount)
Rest of it from MKM Customs.

I am going to haul a 15k# goose neck very soon from eastern NM to Fl. Hope to update soon with mileage details, performance shouldn't be an issue!

I did mine by myself last night. That ±100lb DPF is quite heavy by yourself. I propped it up with my knees and was able to get it out.
Return to stock would be tough by myself.

The EGR delete was a PITA. I hate the pressure sensor bracket nut! What goomba engineer would do such a thing?
I didn't lose much antifreeze. Don't know why, but there's still a half gal in the bucket too and both reservoirs are overfull.
I strained mine with a paint strainer.

I used the aFe 5" w/ muffler and H&S's EGR delete.

Whole thing took me 5hrs, I don't know where H&S gets 1.5hrs for the EGR, bet I spent 30-45min on that damn nut alone.

Please post a video or a sound clip. I would love to hear the difference a muffler makes. Thanks

Drove it tonight a bit. LIKE the new power. Sounds pretty tough too. No drone at highway speeds either.
And the lie-o-meter is saying 19mpg of mixed driving. For whatever that's worth.

I was going to make a video of stereo off and sounds at 50 60 & 75, but honestly you wouldn't hear anything! With the stereo on, no difference. Would you agree, TTruck?

No, I can hear it. It's not bad though...until you stomp on it, then you know you've lit a fire somewhere nearby.

I've got the tubing to do the door seal mod, just need to pick a night with the GF to do it. Hopefully that will help a little. Someday I'll add dynomat too (or some flavor of that - lizard skin maybe.)

It's not a kit. It's some tubing and silicone spray. What you do is put the tubing inside the cavity in the existing door seal and it makes the seal stiffer for a better seal. Supposed to cut down on wind noise and help the door keep from rattling so much.

I think I paid about $40 for the tubing on Amazon.

Exhaust was 540 and the EGR was 95. Performance Truck Products was the etailer.

Don't know yet, dyno is scheduled for tomorrow night.

Seat of the pants dyno, I'm predicting 450RWHP and near 900tq, but we'll find out for sure tomorrow.

Eagerly waiting to hear how the truck does (as it would give me a ballpark on mine)

450hp 1050tq

My guess, if you can get it to load on the dyno.

Do you have the latest TV 6.7.21 update? It is supposed to clear the coal on throttle tip in. I'm just wondering how that effects power?
