    TRD or AFE for the CAI. Don't waste your money or time on duals for performance. Your are better off with headers and a catback system, either Doug Thorely or URD assuming they make anything for the 3.4L.

    Well, you posted in the performance and tuning so thats the logic I used. :p (back at ya). If you want the louder exhaust then by all means, but keep in mind it's a six cylinder and you aren't going to get the deepness you would with a V8.

    getting there....
    if you have the 3.4v6...........dont get an expensive intake........go with the deck plate mod...best bang for the buck. seriously awesome mod, and has been dyno proven. get a good filter to go with it. also........if you really wanna open the exhaust up....go with some trd headers and a dynomax super turbo muffler. the gains will be nice. skip out on the dual exhaust...which can rob you of low end and torque. just my .03(2 cents aint sheeot:D)

    ^^Yep! Do exactly what Will said!!!! I got TRD headers and the Dynomax muffler, and them together, sounds awsome! and the performance is noticeable as well.

    Can you post a link to where you found dynomax super turbo? We want to find a price but the places we've looked don't have it for his truck. Let me know. thx :)

    Stay away from dual exhaust!! I got it on mine and its extremely loud and I lost power. Save your $$$ and do Deckplate instead of CAI. CAI's are nice, I got one and love it but could have used the $$$ on something else instead of it
