I have ordered the flowmaster system and am planning on dual out the back. I also want to put on the Hellwig Sway Bar. Does anyone know if they will interfere with each other? I think I am going to have the sway bar done first at a local mechanic shop then take it to an exhaust shop for the exhaust just in case they have to adjust it. Any thoughts?
Thanks for the heads up. I never plan on doing nitrous or anything like that. The truck is pretty great the way it is, but I am looking for some better performance on take off and when entering the interstate or passing people. Plus more of a truck sound to it. Right now I can barely even hear it running.
I hadn't even thought about calling them. That's a good idea. But I am hesitant as they will probably tell me how great the single exhaust is. But again, good idea. We used to have a truck center here, but it closed earlier this year. Now we just have to depend on knowledge of people on the web or some mechanic at a shop we don't even know. I actually had a mechanic I totally trusted at a local shop. He ended up leaving the area and before he left I asked him who he would trust to work on it. He told me to start going to the dealer for my work. I was driving a dodge challenger shaker at the time. I thought he was just mad, but he was right. My brother took his car there to get new struts and shocks on a ford escape and had to go back 3 times to get it right. Seems like it's hard to find a place or mechanic i can trust in my area. I try to do everything I can myself when possible any more. I may give Banks a call Monday. Thanks for the input.
I don't have a local speed shop. And the Banks said up to 39 horsepower using their entire system including the exhaust. But I wanted the dual exhaust and Banks only offers single exhaust. Then of course I went down the rabbit hole and started looking into other stuff. The throttle body is an easy add-on so I asked about that. I do not know much about them though. I think there is a shop in town that I may go talk to this week. It's a truck place, but I don't know if they have dyno capabilities or not. So far this is as far as I probably need to go.
Got my harness while I was out of town last week. Thanks Phil!!! Didn't take long at all. I won't have it put in for a bit, but I am sure it will be perfect.
Going to be installing a Banks Ram Air CAI, Flowmaster American Thundrers, and a Banks program. What sequence would you go with? I already have the CAI and programmer. I guess one could ask, when is the right time to install the program? Should I wait until after the exhaust is done? Also, have been thinking about a ported throttle body or a throttle body spacer. Which way would you go and why? And lastly, what can I reasonably expect performance wise?
These are a pain for sure. Start with the gray one. Use a small flat tip screwdriver on the bottom right side (of your photo) there should be a little tab to press in a pull out at the same time. The do the black one. The black one has the tab on the right side as well.
Thank you. Will remove it this weekend.
Thanks Frankie. How is it attached? I wondered why i felt like I had no room for my foot.
Are you guys taking this trim piece out when you install the console?
I always have it connected through bluetooth. I have a 2014 so I am not sure that would make a difference or not though.
Not without the harness. The only plug ins i had were from the ash tray. Those get reused even with the harness.
I put mine in without the harness. I have one power port and the 110v working without it. I am glad I put it in. I love it so much more than the seat. Plus, how many ports are really needed. At this point, as long as I can charge my phone I am happy.
