06 exhaust and cai help

ok a buddy is looking to start gaining some power out of his 06 it's totally stock but wants to start with cai and exhaust. so I was wondering who makes the best cai for it... I know there is a mod to the stock air box but he wants to leave that alone for warranty crap. then comes what is the best exhaust for it. it's a ca truck but getting rid of the cat helps with the heat right? so he can just get the code delete for that too right? so best exhaust for the bang too any help is great.

Silverline for the exhaust. Just like MBRP but less $$.

:thanks: being the truck has low low miles on it would he be better to go cat back so he doesn't mess with the code throwing or getting the code blocker for warranty issues. does the cat hold in that much heat?

Cat back might be better if he's still under warranty. Or he could do a cat back + cat test pipe which gives him the option to put the cat back on if he needs to. The cat does hold some of the heat....about 30 degrees hotter with the cat in place compared to no cat. A code blocker would do the trick if he does throw codes after dropping the cat.

the truck has under 30k on it right now so he doesn't feel like losing out on the warranty. I think for now just a cat back system. appreciate all the help.

I still like the MBRP Exhaust systems, as for CAI, just leave it stock or put a system on with a "Dry" filter, I have the Airaid CAI but If I had to do over I would have done the mod to the stock air box.

Don't get me wrong, MBRP makes a great exhaust too. I had a T409 single on my 02 Dmax.

why? what would you hope to accomplish (aside from destroying a good cold air intake)?

Not trying to be picky, but did someone determine that there was a performance advantage in 2nd guessing the Donaldson Engineers? They finally addressed a serious issue plaguing the entire 01-05 fleet. PPE comes along with a hack job mod, to placate ones need for a placebo pill, and we just get out the saw on faith?:shrug:

I dont think anyone should be calling what other supporting companies do here hack jobs. To each his own. Leave it at that.

Maybe I am wrong. I'll apologize when I see that someone has been able to produce a measurable improvement (of any kind).
