    Default CGS intakes/exhaust & MBRP exhaust

    I'm signed up for a Black Bear tune in Ft. Worth July 10th and I'm rushing to get intake and exhaust on before the tune (I hear that's the way to do it). But I was wondering if anyone had experience with CGS intakes/exhaust or the MBRP exhaust I really like the way the MBRP sounds and the MBRP is a straight through design similar to Magnaflow just sounds way better.

    Any information or reviews/opinions would be appreciated.

    Sorry, never heard of CGS intakes before. I've heard of MBRP, can't go wrong with those products. I hope you like the decision, i would suggest K&N or AirAid for intakes, the open box intake seem to give a little more then the closed box. Don't quote me, but the closed box seem to be more restrictive.

    I have a MBRP dual exhaust on my truck now. It's a single exhaust that splits in the rear with the exhaust tips angling out behind the tires. Real nice look and good sound when idling and stepping on the pedal. My only downside to the exhaust is the tips. On my truck with the wider tires, they don't stick out that much and it doesn't look that good in my opinion. That's why I'm thinking about a true dual custom exhaust or longer/bigger diameter MBRP tips.

    I was really happy with what I researched on MBRP but then I found Aero exhaust and so far Aero is the winner. It sounds great and I've heard of some real power gains with it. It's real popular with the TBSS guys. I also ordered the CGS intake, I hope it works out bc the price was unbeatable and I've been assured it won't be a "get what you pay for" deal. But we'll see.
