    Wow, you've done a ton of work....very nice! With your engine/exhaust mods, how much of a difference is there with hp, mileage, etc.

    Now THAT'S how you mod a truck! A cold air intake and an exhaust system to provide the air that the ENGINE needs for it's mods. Nicely done!

    Btw thanks guys, its been a long journey. finally landed a steady job just dont make quite as much so mods are slow to come by. but everything on the truck minus the tune was done by me and my roomie. its a great truck and runs really well.

    Increased hp and still getting great mileage. Looks like you've found a winning combo. Great examples for others to learn from. Thanks for sharing!

    well the heads i got are roughly like the prc 2.5 heads. mine flow alittle better down low and they flow alittle better up top. the prc's are like $1300 but a buddie of mines friend hooked it up heads and matched manifold for $750

    Did your truck come with the trans temp or did you add that? if so how was the install for that?

  12. darnie1987

    that is a amazing looking and sounding truck! That is something along the lines of where I wanted my old 05 to kind of end up, but I ended up trading for the 11 I have now.

    I really like it.
