Re: 2007 HD2500 Upgrages?? (18th Aug 08 at 4:22am UTC)
 
Ive got a DMax too, from what i have read u really dont need a cold air intake unless ur running over 500HP then u might notice a difference. Dont know if its true or not, but everyone on the internet seems to think the same on that.
I would just def get a EGT and Boost gauge, if ur running a chip of any kind.
And as people have said here the air bags do make a difference, i love mine. Exhaust is key! 4" Banks exhaust works great with mine and I got rid of the wanabee cat/exhaust chamber, helps get the hot air out.


Thanks, my edge displays all of the necessary information, so I do not think gauges are needed.

I am going to go with AFE intake and exhaust, turbo back. Then I am going to get some firestone ride-rite bags to help the towing.

Thanks Phil...

I was able to get the intake in and will work on the exhaust this weekend.

Im a stock truck your not going to get any mpg out of an intake nor exhaust. You may gain +1-3% mpg because of them when doing both on a chipped/programmed truck. They really only help when ur gettin hot.

Water/meth gives you a +10-15% INCREASE in mpg. 7 gallons of water/meth (-20* window wash fliud) will last 2-3 full tank fulls of diesel and it can be had for less then $2.50 a gallon.

Propane also will INCREASE ur mpg. There is no real numbers persay but you will get better mpg

Well, I got the intake and exhaust in. I can't feel much of a difference, but it doesn't appear to be as restricted. I was happy that it is really not louder than the stock exhaust, just a better sound.

As for injections, I will have to wait and see. That is some coin I really don't want to throw down right now. And I have to finish putting my bio-diesel system together.

Not too many Dmax guys actually hit the limit of the stock injectors. There are some major programs out there that will really make ur truck rip {Grin} . What bio-diesel system did you get? you make ur own or buy one?
