    The exhaust is strictly for trucks that will never be used except as an off road / non public / emissions controlled vehicle. Like any performance product.

    Problem is, after the mods pull their faces out of goober saturated pillows, pry open their crusty/bloodshot eyes, flip back their vomit encrusted hair, stumble through crushed beer cans and pizza bones and finally make it over to their computer, they will see the reports of your dastardly deed. Probably from the same TW DB. Your days are numbered bud.:cookiemonster:

    GOOD MORNING! :)

    I'd be interested in an exhaust that replaces everything after the front cats. Similar to the URD Spec U I guess.. nice to have options!

    ...and the tune is also off-road only (technically speaking). However, this last weekend after having some heavy rains I took to a local creek to kayak. At the takeout on a chilly afternoon, I started up my truck which was parked right next to another '17 OR running the stock tune. Starting my truck up, the exhaust looked "normal" and non-intrusive. The stock stuck was spewing nasty smoke all over the place... just like mine did stock. go figure

    I'm in for the intake pipe. Will it be a metal or plastic pipe @OVTune ?

    Based on what I'm seeing this should be no issue - I'm still perplexed by how that smoky stock mess passes the test personally...

    I too have pre-ordered! Curious about the cam and turbo kit. Definitely looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with.

    The exhaust looks interesting, looking forward to more details.

    I find the new camshafts to be very interesting if they are designed to move the power down lower in the RPMs (@OVTune did not say whether that was the case or not.). This truck makes PLENTY of power above 3500K RPM. I'm honestly not sure what I would do with more power up there. I don't race around in a truck and more power that high up is not all that useful for truck like purposes (towing, off-road work etc). A cam that moves the power lower seems like a much more cost effective way to get the power where this truck really needs help (particularly because of the stupid AT gearing), which is 1500-2500 rpm, than the TT setup. That would certainly help the truck take advantage of the two overdrives without dancing around the gearbox so much at highway speeds. I would gladly trade some top-end power for some low-end grunt in this truck.

    Sounds like this could compete with regearing to 4.88's for what it provides to the truck. The cost will probably be a big factor for many and for me personally, losing the factory warranty on my diff's is less of a hit than losing the warranty on the engine itself. Maybe once its out of warranty, i would consider the cam. I plan on larger tires and gears would definitely help. I wonder if a cam would help in that instance

    I might be able to avoid a regear if the upgraded camshaft delivered adequate low end torque. I don’t even mind a mpg hit if that’s what it takes.
