    I currently have a Mbrp offroad catback and a aFe stage 2 cold air intake. Im looking at headers and a y-pipe. Basicly Im trying to get as much power out of this truck without a superchager :spy:
    Im not really sure where to start, I understand these trucks are not fast nor are they sports cars but just want to squeeze some more of her. Can someone give me some direction? Should I keep the way it is or keep going?

    Well it sounds like you answered your own question. Get a URD MAF cal to tie everything together.

    Less top end with more low to mid range gains with the shorties. Also peak power is less.

    dant waste your money...if you wanna "feel" more power re-gear.....or supercharge.....you have a good exhaust and intake...maybe a doug thorley pipe bomb, but thats more to gain offroad clearence and alil performance

    You dont loose top end with the shortys. You just gain most in the midrange. The shortys give gains all across the range, but the long tubes give the largest on top, with a small loss on the bottom.

    Even after regearing and adding a full exhaust, at the end of the day it's still a 4,000 lb. slow terd. Save your money for something more useful.

    The problem arises when people expect a 100hp gain from intake and exhaust when really your are lucky if you get 7 peak from both. 7 will do nothing for you especially if it is only at high revs.
