Yup CAI doesn't do anything like KMAC said unless you have a custom tune. If you haven't done exhaust yet you can do a muffler swap with turn downs immediately after for around $300 I believe if you find the right shop.

Yeah, I didn't notice any "gains" from the Gotts Mod either, but it was something to try. It really does make sense that the stock, unmodified, unit flows way more than a stock motor can utilize. So intakes don't really serve a purpose until forced induction.

If you just hacked off the old muffler and had a new one welded on with it dumping below the truck, that should be cost of muffler + $50. I don't like how dumps sound that much though. A shop around here will do a knock-off SIDO and duals for around $300, but they get rusted up right quick, and that's in Texas!

I've got some little SIDO system on mine and it's holding fine. It was on when I bought the truck 4 years ago. No brand on the muffler. Had a shop replace the chrome rolled tips for some slash cut stainless steel for $60. Called about getting a system done for my dad once for Father's Day and told me around $500 for SiDo and $300 for muffler swap which I thought was pretty high.

I think my buddy's is fine other than the tips having holes in them, but I haven't looked at his truck in probably two years now other than seeing the tips. Both of those sound high for sure.

Tips aren't too expensive. And i thought so. Weird part is it's the same place that did my tips for so cheap. I believe I've got 4" tips that are again I think 12" long

Mine are $75 a piece But I got them as part of my catback kit, no way I'd buy those individually at that insane price. Cheaper 304 SS tips are really worth the money though, cause normal metal ones look like turd after a week.

haha well now that the off-topic has taken off, my next question: Worth spending money on a true dual? or stick with SIDO?

Go duals if you want the sound, but that's the only reason why. Actual true duals sound much better IMO, but a SIDO gives the looks for less.

So tires . . .

I'm not sure but I think www.rimzoneonline.com ships to Canada. Also goto www.atturo.com and search for a dealer. Other than that I'm not sure because I'm down in Texas.
