    Looks sweet for sure.

    Did you just put headers and exhaust on your truck, or did you do a tune to it as well??
    As I'm wanting to maybe get headers on my 2015, but for the expense, it's not really worth it in terms of "seat of the pants" get up and go as to what I've been made to believe.

    What's your experience??

    Thank you in advance for any info or thoughts passed along.

    I did long tubes I already had done the muffler delete. I'll be going full stainless cat back setup soon. You could probly run stock tune if you get long tubes with cats. You won't have that big power but it will sure be noticeable over stock that's for sure. That said a tune will Definately help you I went with a Jay Greene tune and it made a huge difference in power but it wasn't necessary. In my case I went Alittle overboard I only wanted to fix the manifold leak and went Alittle too far.
    I think my next upgrade is a cam then I'm done the engine should be almost bullet proof fixing all the known dodge issues that refuse to properly fix.

    I'm in my work truck rite now but with headers straight pipe cold air intake and a tune on regular fuel I can go 0-60mph from one power pole to another so I'm more than happy. [​IMG]

    Who ever told you that long tube headers did not give you any "seat of the pants get up and go" must be used to some other type of "seat of the pants get up and go" I don't even want to think about. You will find there is a VERY noticeable difference in the performance of your truck with long tube headers installed.

    so do you think there is that much more over having a custom tune already? just trying to justify another 2 grand. i mean going from stock to a couple mods and a hemitune with trans tune was pretty freakin sweet..........I'm right on the edge of some ARH long tubes
