    Just wondering do all 07's have the feature where it goes from 8 cylinders to 4? If they do then I was also wondering does this change your options for changing the exhaust. Is it still possible to do true duals with no muffler? any info on this would be appreciated.

    I had an '07 classic and it did not have DOD. My '08 does have DOD and even with the stock intake/exhaust I can hear a difference in the exhaust tone when it drops down to 4 cyl. A buddy of mine has a 2010 Silverado with DOD running the Gibson Super Truck cat back and when his drops down the 4cyl it has a old tractor sound to it. His cure to the tractor sound was to get a Diablo tuner and turn off DOD. Problem solved.

    if you have a gmt 800 (2007 classic) then probably not. If you have a gmt 900 (2007 NBS and up) then you more then likely do. I'm running single-in dual out magnaflow and defiantly can tell when it goes from 8-4 and back to 8. I think Trucks! on speed did an exhaust system that minimized the side affects of AFM .. I'll have to see if i can't find it.

    thanks for the info and yeah I have the New body style. I really hope I can still change my exhaust, I have never had a quiet bowtie. Although it will be a long time before I can get a tuner. Im wanting to level it and get some all terrain tires soon.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you'll only have to worry about the DOD/AFM if you have a 5.3L or bigger engine. The 4.8L V8 does not have it, if I'm not mistaken.
