Our first trip in the 2500
« on: August 16, 2018, 22:56:44 PM »

    Our first trip in the 2500 towing our RV trailer was about 800 miles.  We traveled to just outside Coos Bay
on the Southern Oregon Coast. Stayed at Sunset Bay State Park.  :thumbsup:

The 1500 served its purpose as a daily driver for last 9 years. It was the first Ĺ ton Iíve purchased.  :A:
At the time I was not looking to be pulling an RV. Looking at the upgrades I would need with coming up
on to 200k. The 2500 made a better choice for me stepping up to a longer and heaver RV.
Iím sure glade I made that decision.   :woot:  :woohoo:

It has a K&N filter/Air box on it.  I accelerated and you could hear it. I said I need to put a stock air box
back on to the wife. As usual WHY?? The stock would be quieter. She said but thatís what makes it sound macho.

 Headers, exhausts, tune, Eaton True Trac coming.   :4: :4: :4: :4:

Magnaflow makes a great stainless steel 2 in 2 out muffler that works great as a simple swap.
And yup ,I went with a k&n cold air (cone filter) and it howls under load. Wish I still had factory plastic intake.

     The intake is not bad my 5.3 is louder. I was giving my wife a bad time.

She always gets after me she knows I can't leave things alone.  :4:

I'm having The Muffman do the exhaust. He use to be active on here and he is local to me.
Hopefully pics and an audio.

The Flowmaster BB50 is a better choice. Deep rumble, very little drone.

What all was involved in installing this?  It looks like it's going to be a huge PITA!  Also, will it run properly without a tuner?  Did you change the cats at the same time or delete them?

Its not a huge job a good muffler shop can do it. I used a Hypertech tuner and left cats on.
