Opinions on tunes with stock exhaust...

I'd like to get a tuner for driveability and mileage purposes, not really to hot rod (still have head bolts). However, i still have the stock exhaust with the cat on my 07. A little added power would be nice but not really needed for me at this time. I dont have the cash for both. In my climate i have to go with stainless exhaust systems or else they will only last a year or 2. So, what say you?

MBRP down pipe with the MBRP cat delete pipe in stainless steel. Cheap and works. Later down the road you can get a cat back system to make it complete. This may be more expensive in the long run so think about it. The stock exhaust is fine while using tuning.

Even with the cat and stock downpipe? I was not sure how much of a restriction it created, i was concerned with EGTs.

Yes...keeping it stock till you install a full exhaust is just fine. Just watch the EGTs and see what happens.

Re: Opinions on tunes with stock exhaust...

I'll probably just do the cat delete pipe cause its cheap as well as being the biggest restriction and go from there. Thanks for your insight.
