If that'* the case, then the community is still holding strong. I thought by now people would have been weened off of the *-10'* by now. Especially with these EPA laws which I barely squeaked by.

When I planned for the swap, I wanted everything to work. The only thing that doesn't work is the shift indicator. It'* in the software and I'm not sure if HPTuners can even fix that.
The haters are the ones that either failed, or don't have the money to do it. Oh well.

Extra power comes at a price. Thankfully gas prices have been falling pretty good lately.
What you heard in the video was just the custom headers. No exhaust at all. But now, its using the factory Y-pipe which needs to come out because they are too small. My header collectors are 2.5".

This is the kit I want to get...

But its for the earlier model *-10'* without 4WD and for headers I'm not using. I'm sure with the use of a flex pipe, I can sneak past the forward shaft and be okay. And the other problem is, it doesn't come with cats. I'd have to either install expensive NY cats or drop the exhaust and put my other one back in every year just to get it inspected.

Inspection nightmares..not fun at all.
I wonder if you could make an easy swap system for the cats and just replace with straight pipe after inspections LOL..
Could you not just use Walker cats?

It may leak a small bit but I have heard these clamps do very well.

I have no problem using cats. Problem is though, they are expensive. Most places won't ship a non-CAL to Cali or NY because they are not certified.
