Default 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!

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.

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