Just bought a 2005 6.0

Looking for a tuner, exhaust and intake. Who has the best product as far as quality and performance, cost is secondary.

Thanks, Jon.

cut cat and muffler off

If you live in a state that doesnt do veh insp. then just go ahead and cut the cat and muffler off. you'll get a better sound and better gas mileage. it cost about 50 bucks if you have someone do it. or at least here

Thanks, Jon.
Dont waste your money on a intake, as the stocker is good to 500HP.

Exhaust, go with MBRP. There stuff is real nice, im a dealer for them and have had MBRP on both my diesels. LOVE IT. do a 4" Turbo back, you choose if you want a muffler or not, stainless or aluminized.

Tuner, Go SCT. Call innovative diesel for tunes, they will hook you up!

Shoot me a PM with a cost on SS in the 4" turbo back minus the muffler, I like to be able to hear them.

Thanks, I fly in to Louisville Saturday morning and drive it home to MI!

What are the differences and who's tunes? I have been out of the 6.0 loop for a while so I don't know all the ins and outs yet.
