i have the AFE cai on my 06' prerunner 4.0 and was thinking about buying an exhaust. leaning towards the banks monster, but what do you think? Does a CAI go well with a certain exhaust?

Well both with a MAF calibrator will make for a decent gain.

AFE Intake is a good set up. I recommend the SI edition with dry filter.

On the other hand Banks exhaust is full 3" mandrel bent cat back system. I would not recommend going this route unless you plan on installing a SC. you will loose too much back pressure if not running a blower.

Stick with a good 2.5" Magnaflow, or something like the Aero turbine 2.5".
just have a shop cut out stock muffler and weld in new one. No need for a full cat back unless you prefer stainless steel piping and madrel bends...

Just a thought.

I run the Banks system. Seat of the pants tells me I didn't lose low end. I thought I was going to lose some but nothing that I can feel. Of course I don't have a dyno sheet to prove my opinion but I think that 3" very close to too big but not actually too big.

Good to know, then it should be perfect for my set up. I was going by rule of thumb as far as piping diameter. [/quote]

This product is a great, but if you can afford it I would go this route:

Well maybe the Banks kit with long tubes will cause you to lose backpressure. I want to run this setup in the future so I hope I don't lose low end power. If I do I'll just have to throw a blower on.

Hmmm,,,,

Sounds like a familiar plan...

Try areo turbine exhust with the free flow cat. Sounds awesome and with the AFE combo you will get 24hp +/- a couple. It is what I run on mine and the power pick up was noticable and it dyno'd at +24hp.

Not to play devils advocate, but do you have any slips or print outs you could post. Those are big numbers for just intake and exh. I know the Aero turbine is a pretty good muffler, but wow... Was this Dyno pull with just the mods you stated. And was it an N/A or F/I motor???

Sorry, just want to know whats working and whats not...

Laters...

Free flow cats are a joke. They flow about the same or a tiny bit more than stock. The reason people swear by them is because usually they have a plugged cat and they replace it with a high flow so they gain the power back from having a clogged cat. I used to believe they really freed up power but over the years I have learned what is really going on.

Sorry, hate to burst your bubble but the truck is 3 months old. So no plugged cat. I did the same to my '04 DC and had similar results.

I will get a pic of the dyno sheet and post asap.

What bubble?

I'm interested in seeing this "dyno sheet" you have.
