Get a 4in exhaust would be first thing. Can pick one up for around $300.

there's nothing to putting the exhaust on yourself. That's the cheapest way. The best way would be a bigger turbo.

what about going down to a muffler shop and buying something like that. As for the turbo what about the HX35.

What about running a muffler to not running a muffler? Which is better? What should i do 4" or 5".

You can build a 4inch system for a lot less than that if you do it yourself. You can actually build a complete system for about $200. Just go down to your local international dealership and the parts store will have all the straight and elbows you need to get up and over the rear axle. Or you can make a shorty exhaust and do it for about $120.

As far as the bigger turbo. You shouldn't need one with just a box. I ran a hot box, rv injectors, 4in and an AFE intake, I couldn't break 1300* on 5x5. A bigger turbo will just create more lag and heat down low at this point. Your sig. says 2000 which means you have an hx on there already.

ok but is 5" better then the 4" or is it just the sound. I really don't think i'm going to make over 500hp any time soon.

4" with a flow-through muffler or strait pipe is plenty. 5" is noise and people really moving a lot of air. You should already have the hx35 on your rig. You could go to a 14 or 16 cm exhaust housing, but again more lag and you proble don't need it.

i know that my truck is a 2000 and it should have a HX but it's a really late 2000 and belive it or not it has a 2001 engine in it so sadly it's a HY. So if i got a HX i'm guessing that would halp.
