You gotta be an engineer. My sons one so I recognize the thought process. But, what were you doing to get to 1450 EGT, i don't think I've ever been close to that, even pulling some of those passes out west. And my rig is 25,000 plus on the scale.

Residential/Commercial Contractor actually.

I didn't hit 1450 regularly, but I could do it easily. I had to put a few sports cars in their place. Mustang GT, Corvette and a 370Z to name a few.

downpipe question

alright so I'm reading around and came across this thread, and I have a quesation. why do you have to cut the stock DP out? does it just not twist out and stuff? and if thats the case, then how is it that you can install the aftermarket down pipe? Also, turbo back exhaust is actually a after market DP and back kit, correct? and a DP back kit, keeps the stock DP and replaces everything aft? correct.. too many threads being read and some people are not 100% on what they are saying, so it gets confusing.. thanks...

After market DP's are usually two pieces. People have gotten the OE DP out w/o cutting, but I couldn't.

DPF back vs Cat Back

Mine has been off so long I forget the architecture but I think it goes down pipe to cat to dpf to muffler. I don't know why you'd just go cat back, which as I said just replaces the cat and muffler. Just replace it all.

If you are talking pipes and mufflers then Down pipe (DP) back would be remove CAT and DPF and Tail pipe and muffler.

Turbo back would be Down Pipe plus what you removed above.

Removing Cat and DPF (tuner required) is the best thing you can do for the 6.4L truck. If you do that, you will have more power than you ever need and will be wasting money doing anything else to the intake or exhaust. unless you are going for drag racing or sled pulling.

If you do not remove the DPF anything else you do is just a waste of money.

If you want to remove other stuff then get it all.

Adding a larger pipe DPF back does nothing but reduce your bank account.

Hope I covered it all.
