  1. Progress pic. The day I bought it and how she looks right now. Mods are 3” level up front RC forged UCAs Stock rear with Bilstein 5100s 315/70/17 BFGs KO2s 17x8.5 Method Racing 304s Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk’s
  2. It’s much louder. The BW would sort of peak out on sound as where the Borla just gets louder the more pedal you give it. The BW also had an annoying fluttery sound under light throttle. The Borla seems to be the right amount of rasp, throatiness, and tone. No drone either. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I swapped out my Blackwidow muffler awhile back with a Borla Atak crate muffler. I want to put cam in this thing so bad. Set up is in the video description. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. That’s badass man. Did you just remove the spare to get the stocker to fit? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I’ve got some chrome window trim in my attic from my 2015 crewcab LTZ. I swapped them out for black. I’ll get a couple pics to you tomorrow. I could even throw in some new retainer clips too as they usually break when removing them. What’s your zip and I’ll get a shipping quote for you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’m using a Dynomax intermediate pipe with no flex pipe. Have not had any issues yet. I know they allow some movement of the exhaust under load but for the most part, I think they just make getting everything to line up a little easier. I wouldn’t be too worried about it. That Corsa should have a life warranty if something does go South. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. If done right it doesn’t look bad and it’s behind the liner so unless you tell someone, you’re the only one that’s going to know it’s been trimmed. Just a decision you have to make if you want to run big tires or offset with minimal lift. You have to cut or let it rub constantly and risk really messing something up.

  8. What muffler are you running? I’m also running TSPs with a catted Y. I live over near Grandlake btw. Moving to the Tulsa area in the next couple months. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Finally got my exhaust done and sounding pretty much how I want. My current set up is Texas Speed 1 7/8” longtubes and catted Y pipe, 3” Dynomax intermediate pipe, AFe resonator followed by a Blackwidow Venom 250 muffler with a single side exit Corsa tip out the back. The BW was way too raspy and airy sounding by itself but the resonator seemed to deepen the tone up and got rid of most of that airy sound. I was actually surprised how much it did for no bigger than the casing is. With this set up it is pretty loud on cold starts and you can definitely tell it has long tubes which is I wanted. It calms down pretty quick after the initial start up. Once it’s warm it has a nice little bark on normal start ups. It also has a nice little pop in between shifts which makes it hard to keep my foot out of. I can keep it very tame driving around town but if I want to roll on it a little it will definitely make some noise. Absolutely no drone cruising or at highway speeds. More of just an exhaust pulse that I think you’d get with any set up with headers. I don’t do alot of WOT pulls with this thing but you can definitely feel the power the headers added down low. Where it used to fall on its face, the power is there now. By no means is the truck fast but feels a lot better considering I have 35” tires and 3.42 gears. This is my first truck with longtubes so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Definitely glad I went this route. The only other set up I’d like to try is a Corsa dB or sport muffler. I’ve ran a Corsa on pretty much all my trucks but this one. Happy with it for now though. https://youtu.be/r4Knvic0gUY Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Any chance it could be your headers or y pipe hitting somewhere over bumps. I know you’ve had them on for a while but maybe you have warn motor mount allowing the motor to sag. Seems like you’ve gone through every possibility on the suspension. My TSPs were hitting when I first installed them but a quick y pipe adjustment took care of it. Don’t know just a thought. I know these noises can be super frustrating trying to find. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Nice. How much of a difference in ride quality compared to the Procomps? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I believe that depends on the issue. If the dealership can prove that the catch can caused or was related to the issue or failure then yes. I don’t believe they can void your entire power train warranty because of a catch can. I’m sure there are dealerships out there that would try though. This is just what I’ve gathered from having the same question so please don’t take this as a for sure yes or no. May need to ask your dealer. I just installed long tubes and had the truck tuned so I’m definitely rolling the dice. My truck is a 2015 but my powertrain is not up until Aug 2020. [emoji1694] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Quick update. Just emptied the can today. I don’t think I’m quite at 500 miles since the install and already poured this much out of the can[emoji15] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. The Venom 250 sounded good with manifolds but it is way to airy and raspy with long tubes. I switched it out with a Borla XR-1 and it’s much better. I got the headers brand new from another forum member. I probably have less than $800 in the whole system. Headers/Y pipe and 2 different mufflers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
