Any 100 dudes here getting a cat back exhaust?
I haven't read every single thread so don't know who's in... just curious if anyone with the DT headers is also thinking DT cat back, or the new EMS cat back? I was interested, then got over it, then saw the EMS thread and am interested again. Would love to see yours first though! :D

exactly.. checking out the headers first tho :)

Talked to Robbie about the O2 sensors, replacing the right side since I just replaced the left.

I need to get on the DT header list before the Cat back list.

I was hoping some of you guys with all the big money would have everything all done, then I could see/hear/feel what all the hype is about before dropping my hard earned cash dollars.

I have the headers and am happy with them. Haven't really seen enough info to show the exhaust is worth the trouble. My headers were cracked making a ticking noise and the extra HP shown by the before and after Dyno tests were enough.

I know on the 80, there was a big difference when I went to 3" pipe, but I was supercharged so more air going in

It's nice to have kits, but why is that better than when it's time having the muffler shop use bigger pipe and I select a muffler thats better. They seem to use mufflers that i can buy as well. I could go to 3" pipe when I do it like I did on the cruiser and likely save some money and have it customed fitted and welded as well

Anyone see a real advantage?

I'm not sure you need 3" on a naturally aspirated 4.7L...I think 2 1/4" is stock and the 2 1/2" cat-back Dynomax kit I have on my Tundra feels just about right...

Well what's intriguing right now is it's a pretty good deal on a full kit, with some nice upgrades to the pipe diameter, the routing, etc. Speaking of the EMS Powered one specifically. the second is they are coming out with a Turbo kit- in which case a new exhaust is almost a requirement. And thirdly, it's about $600, shipped- which as far as aftermarket kits go is a pretty swingin' deal.

Looks like EMS Powered is pretty confident in their product as well. It might be a good deal. They're even willing to give one away to prove it.

Stan, get one!

check out the thread in the triple top secret member's only area.. ;)

Hasn't EMS had some significant problems in the past making deliveries and resolving issues when customers went to install the "engineered" kit?
