Truck Thus Far/Plan for Next Week

I installed a K&N CAI on Monday afternoon, no problems at all noticed a difference in power. Yesterday I went and got a SCT X3 programmer from Misner Motorsports. Love it so far. My plan early next week is exhaust. I have a few questions for people. I will just be swapping the muffler i think. Will i notice any lose in fuel mileage with that set up? I am going for sound more than anything, i just dont want my fuel mileage to suffer.

just a catback swap will be mainly for sound,
with the intake and the programmer it all adds up to something good. the only way you will lose mpg's is because you'll be ripping around more with the sweet new sound and performance



Really? Its the Internet take it easy.

If your looking for sound just drop the muffler and put a straight pipe in, or do a flowmaster, magnaflow, dynomax, cheery bomb, all depends on how much sound your looking for. I have a sound clip video on my thread and Hogdust has a video on his thread. Or go to youtube and search some exhuast.

i would do a muffler as you wont gain much an then get jay to do a dyno tune for you as the mail order tunes have more left in them keep us updated i picked up like 25 hp from mail order tune to jay dyno tune
