^ look at the dt header dyno...lce doesnt do a very good job "representing" theirs, this dyno is a little biased in my opinion

Which leads me to a question, and hopefully one of you very smart people has the answer! If I were to get both the LCE exhaust and headers will they fit a reg cab truck, or will cutting be involved? Thanks and I hope I didn't derail this thread too much!

If you get the red cab exhaust there shouldn't be any cutting if they fabbed it correctly. Speaeking from experience be careful with headers and a catback because I feel as though I lost some low end and backpressure from running headers and exhaust. If I did it again id run just a aftermarket header

No it won't sound like ass with the stock muffler, in fact it sounds stock with the stock muffler. The aftermarket header does not cancle out a cat or anything that would alter the sound. On my old car aftermarket cat sounded like shit because it deleted a cat but ours don't have one

So a loss in backpressure would cause a reduce in power and is LC's exhaust system is cat back? And what would you reccomend instead of rolling with that exhaust system?

i'm down. looking to get better a little better lower end torque. Put me in for one, just need make sure it can fit my 2007 AC.

BTW, stock sounds like crap, within my first week of having my taco got a cherry bomb muffler put on for $140, and well worth it now (not for any performance gains, but needed to get away from the stock sound)
