LBZ chip/exhaust

My buddy just traded in his LB7 2500 for a LBZ 3500. From what we hear, He can't straight pipe the LBZ is this correct? Are there any tuners out for the LBZ yet and do they work properly, or should he wait a little while???

Thanks.

He can straight pipe it if he gets a code eliminator(think thats what its called) from PPE & use a the earlier years exhaust. for the programming-Bullydog, Superchips or PPE. Stick with the tow settings

HydrillaHoundawg,

You can use a cat back exhaust with no code issues and a Superchip or Bully Dog programmer along with a set of gauges and an AFE intake or Super Stock kit and you're set for lots of fun! Call us if you have any questions we'll be glad to help you.

Florida as far as I know and it has been for several years now, has stopeed sniffin my pipe. I have run a straight pipe on 3 of my fords and my buddy currently is on his LB7 that is being replaced with the LBZ. We are just a fan of the tune. I was told that the LBZ will throw codes. But I figured there should be a eliminator out for it soon. The same thing went for my cobra. MIL eliminator cured the problem:Thumbup:

The only thing that shocks me is that the stock Ally is said to be already maxed out and a mild tuner is best with the LBZ. :shrug: He only tows a 20ft bassboat and he will be runnin the truck on 22.5's. Seems like a light chore for the 3500. I was thinkin he could atleast run a 80-100hp tuner as long as he doesn't beat the snot out of it.

I am new to the Diesel thing and would like to get up to speed as fast as possible.

I am getting a 2006 Duramax LBZ GMC and would like to change the exhaust right away. I will be towing a Toy Box of about 8,000 pounds (Not much for a diesel) and would like to know; what are the good and bad of 4" vrs 5" exhaust? Is there a down side to having 5" from Turbo back? I see most have 4" down tubes is there a reason that someone wouldn't want to have bigger down tube. I setup Baja Race Bikes and going to big on the exhaust you loose your low end but, gain power in the higher rpm's. Does this hold true with diesels?

I will want the best power programer to adjust the speedo and increese power/fuel milage. I have a 2004 lifted silverodo with a 5.3l, JBA headers, Mac 4" exhaust, cold air induction, and the diablo preditor tuner but, It is not the same as diesel so I need to get the best info it get this right the first time.

I went with the Duramax because my friend got a 2005 Chevy Duramax and it is a nice truck.

XR680R,

Get either the MBRP or AFE cat back exhaust system, the AFE Stagei II intake with Pro Guard 7 filter and the Bully Dog Programmer. We sell this combo all the time and it's excellent and changes the performance of the truck immensley. Call us if you have any questions we'll be glad to help you on them.
