Thread: You Thoughts

    Default You Thoughts

    Okay friends I just want to know what you think my next thing I do. Should I buy an air intake, programmer, or try for an exhuast system? I've been toying with this thought for a while.

    In my opinion, an intake is the best bang for your buck. Can't go wrong with any of those though!

    Cool you thoughts

    #1 programmer, I like the Diablo because you can do alot with it. #2 intake #3 exhaust, believe or not the stock muffler flows good on a flow bench.

    I was thinking about getting the programmer first so I could set my truck to better mpg but at the same time I'm not sure I'd see a change since I'm only like 2-3 miles from work. But again it's something I could play with in the truck when I get bored. lol I'm so torn. lol

    The first thing that I did was put the exhaust on. I wanted it to sound good. And it was pretty cheap. Everything looks good on the truck, but she's also got to sound mean!

    If you have the cash get the programmer you will see a big difference in performance I just got mine last week. Then I would get the exhaust to satisfy your ears and then the intake.

    I'd say exhaust. You get two bangs fo the buck, good sound and better performance.
