  1. No, sorry not the best pic but I don't feel like rolling underneath it right now.
  2. I just ran new pipe from the XR1 back, plus I wanted a different tip anyways.
  3. Another CAI question

    Cold Air Inductions, those #s seem a little optimistic but I really like mine. You will be getting a lot of responses soon from people who either say they do nothing or are concerned about you wasting your money (love those people). At the end of the day, its your money....mod how you want and enjoy your truck. Rant over.
  4. Nic D is the go-to-guy in the Phoenix area, I believe his email is [email protected] but I am not 100% sure. He used to freelance a lot but I know he tunes for Cordes Performance, so you could start there.
  5. Lowering???

    Which QA1s do you have?
  6. Lowering???

    For a daily driver that will never see the track, I don't need that much shock. Just looking for a little softer ride.
  7. Lowering???

    I looked at the Vikings and they be a little more than I need for my DD. Anyone else have any recommendations?
  8. Lowering???

    I have the Belltech sports. Which Viking shocks? Never heard of them.
  9. Lowering???

    I went with the Belltech kit and went 3-5 on my reg cab. I think the ride is a little rougher in the back with the Belltech shocks so I am looking for a replacement shock.
  10. intake, exhaust, & tune tips

    You are going get people telling you cold air kits do nothing even though there is proof to the contrary out there, you know how the internet is. I have a Cold Air Inductions kit and really like it but there are others out there that are cheaper. The exhaust is a different story. The only cat-back system I have heard of that retains the flapper is from Borla. I have read that the v4 mode does not show much improvement in mileage over V8 mode if you drive like you have common sense. If you want to retain the flap, I would just upgrade the muffler (Magnaflow, Borla, Flowmaster) and remove the resonator. You can get a handheld tuner to make modest improvements, which sounds like what you are looking for, as well as read and clear DTCs, disable AFM, adjust speedo for bigger tires and such. If you decide you want more, Intune and others offer mail order tunes for handhelds or companies like Black bear will build a custom mail-order tune for a little more. You also can get dyno tuned, which in my opinion is overkill for basic bolt on mods but you do you. It really all depends on how much you want to spend. Now someone will post here telling you not to waist your money because it is all BS and it does nothing. Although it is nice to know people care about how you spend your money.
  11. The CAI kit took in air from the same location as the stock box but it had a larger opening as well as the larger smooth air duct and high flow filter.
  12. I have 1 on my 2016 5.3 and had 1 on my 08 TBSS and loved it on both vehicles. Not sure what quality issues you had but I have absolutely no complaints. I can't put any hard #s as to how much of an increase it provides but I have seen enough articles to believe it helps plus it looks a 100 times better than the stock setup. Like i stated earlier, some people apparently want 1 hp per dollar they spend and that is just ridiculous!
  13. The truck is still trying to maintain the same AFR. Cooler/denser air means more fuel can be added to maintain the same ratio, which means more power. Yes, to get the most benefit out of almost any mod a tune is required but if you were going to add....lets say headers in a few months, I would wait and tune it once I had finished. There are always a handful of people telling everyone else what is a waste of their money. I know many people feel the factory stereo is more than sufficient, I happen to disagree with that...does that mean I wasted MY money upgrading the stereo. Nope.
  14. Any chance you still have the part # for the kit? The one I see online is for trucks with aluminum A-arms and I have steel.
