Nine9six & Spirt, thank you I always like documenting my builds this is my 1st. Diesel truck so lots of questions on whether to delete or not to delete just to start the conversation. An I hope my build goes smoothly but I’ve run into some hick-ups already. I ordered a set of Wilwood brakes back on November 25, 2020 and still have not received them very frustrating!
1. McGaughys lift kit
2. Wilwood brake kit both ft. & rr.
3. Fox shocks 2.0 both ft & rr.
4. Fuel wheels
5. Baja lights both ft. & rr.
6. Line-X bedliner
7. Low pro bed cover
8. Tires Toyo MT Open Country’s
9. Intake & exhaust
What is your plan for exhaust? With the new diesels it's not as easy as just throw some pipe at it and be done with it. Are you going to delete? Are you looking for sound? Turbo back? Filter back? We're here to help clear up questions if needed.
kbnw15, Yes I would love some more sound and a turbo wine but at the end of the day I don’t to blow smoke or I think they call it rolling coal, im to old for that! As far as Proformance gose as to delete or not to delete all’s I’ve done is an intake & exhaust cause I don’t know the pros & cons in dele or not to still in a learning Curve. I will welcome all advice.
To get what you want with sound the only way is delete. The CAT and DPF are essentially just giant mufflers. Honestly most of the intakes don't net you much of anything either and tend to not filter as good as OEM. I know that's the case on the 6.0 and below but not entirely sure on these newer 6.7s even though I now own one lol. Essentially if you aren't going to delete then you are only changing tips for a different look at the end.
kbnw15, Thank you for the tip & advice but this is all bad news to me cause I would really like to delete it but do to the fact that this is my1st Diesel truck and I don’t know the ins & outs of inspections in NYS so I’m going to play it safe till then she will stay stock. Booooo!!!!
I’m working on a list of items I’m selling off the truck.
Kbnw15, I know it’s been some time have you done anything to your 6.7 yet? I’m still doing my research! An if there’s anybody else who knows how/ on what to do hit me up and and school me on the life of diesel….
Fox suspension was orders when the lift kit was ordered. Because this was right in the middle of COVID-19 I ran into a lot of problems of getting products. I was very surprised I got the Mcgaughy’s lift kit in the time I did! The Fuel wheels I got in no time so with so with the word of everything closing down I ordered the tires right away.
I also ordered a set of Wilwood Brakes the full set both ft & rr with rotors lines everything I could in blue with silver logos. Baja Lights we’re ordered soon after the brakes I got a light bar& rear bumper lights.
This was the most fustairing build I’ve ever been a part of cause of the availability of parts I did not see a big difference in price I guess I was right at the beginning of the price hike!!
This was my time table on the back burner.
1. Mcgaughy’s Lift Kit: Was about 6-8 weeks
2. Fox Suspension: Was about 12 weeks give or take
3. Wilwood Brakes: Was a whopping 8 months
4. Baja Lights: Was 6 months
5. Bed Cover: Was 4 weeks
6. Tires: Was about 4 weeks
7. Fuel Wheels: Was about 2 weeks
8. Outlaw LEDs Lights:Now this deserves its own post in its self!! Not a good experience!
I haven't done anything to my 6.7 and with the way things are now I don't feel like it is worth the headache of searching down what I need to do the deletes and stuff and then have something go wrong. This truck is super solid as is and the only thing I think I will be doing "performance-wise" is I still need to get me some air bags for the rear and maybe just find some shiny piping for the engine compartment. Also probably a DPK at some point but I'm to lazy and indecisive to figure out which one to get.
I like the look of that truck my man. Unfortunately it looks like the only way we can get the exhaust sound out of it is to throw speakers in the bed and play a recording of an old 6.0 on a loop lol.
