3" is to big if your using the stock navi intake. My 03 Navi utilizes 2.5" from the factory.

i have a question for you guys. At this point its just a dream but its a dream ive been building since i got the truck three years ago, so if i have things my way it WILL happen lol. So heres my question, can you run wet nitrous with a twin screw supercharger? im more worried about the fuel itself going through the blower and damaging seals etc. than i am the nitrous itself. id like to run about a 75 shot and maybe push it to 125 or 150 shot for the strip. i have a 5.4

Staying with a single? Figured you might go with duals.

Thats more money and id rather keep it simple. Aint nothing wrong with single exhaust. Just thought a 3" would flow better.

Or buy a whipple set up.

Or buy a donor lightning.

Those are your options lol or you can just build it ready for boost and then throw boost at it later on.

I did live in the Lightnings boards, but that's not a bad thing, you will learn a lot.

I will have a low mileage ported eaton, ported plenum, and a few other intake parts for sale soon. Also will have injectors for sale too. Putting a Whipple on a HD and will be selling the stock parts.

Ok. Build for boost, NA for now. I'm going to research some sizes but will probably look at a 16cc dish for now on the pistons and that should be capable for both setups. Thanks

Im thinking about a single 3" with a bigger magnaflow muffler with single side exit exhaust behind rear tire. Shiny chrome 4" tip. Think thatll work for an n/a build.
I want pacesetters or OBXs and then a single 2.5" pipe, no cats, XR1, and a resonator.
Or...LTs to 2.25" Duals going into a dual in/dual out muffler with a built in crossover, then dumping lightning style infront of the rear tire.
You 4v people are sticking with your manifolds right?

I miss read what you were saying. The response in bold is how the would do it.

2.5" From the manifolds/headers to atleast 18" after the y-pipe, 3" from there back is fine. The exhaust has cooled down enough that it wont be effected.

It does but, but a cammed 5.4 isnt going to move enough air to fill a 3" correctly.

You dont want to run smaller than 2.5" on the primary pipes coming of the headers if you go L/T's. It will boost the bottom end but will start to restrict the engine severely in the mid to upper rpm's. It would be compounded even worse when boost was added.
