yep, i love it! after driving my chiped 7.3 it sounds like im driving a gasser. This is crazy quiet. Id say it has as much power stock as my 7.3 did chipped and all. Well, not off the line, but it'll get up and go, thats for sure.

so far my only plan is to do a MBRP turbo back 4" with a muffler since I tow alot. Anyone else running that set up? if so, did you notice any differance anywhere?

Hard to believe.

My dmax would beat my old 7.3L even with a 120 chip.

The real treasure you have there is the Ally and the 11.5" G-80 locker. You'll love them. :salute

Usually Ford or Dodge guys that buy GM are doing so because they had to, not because they wanted to. So thats where the "condolences" comes in.
well, i "had to" because the 6.0 is junk (no one is going to convince me otherwise) and take out the cummins engine the dodge is junk...just my 2cents..:thumbsup

And my Dmax is faster stock then my 7.3 was chipped and everything. We were getting on 1 yesterday and i punched it and the GF said it felt faster..so I guess that confirms it. lol

Heres a picture...I figured out last night by accident that it has remote start!:D

I have a 4in straight piped on mine and it is not too loud unless I am really on it, but then again I run a heavy tune everyday. If you tow alot and dont like the drone, I would suggest a Hushpower muffler. They are still straight through mufflers, but are nice about keeping the noise levels down.

If you are on your way back to MI on I-69 through Fort Wayne, shoot me a PM.

i ran a 4" mbrp from the manifold back on a '03 dmax. also had the AFE stage 2 air cleaner. it was a little louder but not too bad until i stepped on it. i ran a superchip tuner on low level and didn't have any temp issues towing 6 tons in east tn.
hope this helps and congrats on your new truck,

Great looking truck. If you don't mind me suggesting this: Your truck would look awesome with the front bumper Wayne (FordT) had on the front of his 3500.

Come to think of it, it might look good on my 3500, too. :haha
