Your not going to be able to straight pipe and use the Bullydog tuner. You will need a tunes that will shut off the regen of the truck!! You will have to go with a Spartan, SCT, H&S or Edge race evo if you want to start pipe your truck!!

If u dont have the money for the spartan and straight pipe. save up and dont waste ur money on a cheaper tuner. it will be worth the wait. save for better power and mileage.

thank you everbody and thank you jeff. i am debating between the spartan and sct right now. everyone seems to have nothin but good things to say about both of them. the spartan dash daq will run me about 1250$ and comes with 12 tunes. i can take care of the straight pipe myself...does this sound like a good plan?

Your pipe will need to have bungs in it for the sensors if you go with the SCT or Spartan. It can't just be a straight piece of pipe. The H&S Black Maxx and XRT are the only two tuners you can use a true straight piece of pipe without bungs.

the piping is what it is, just piping. you should be good with that tuner and have someone cut and bend your piping without the bungs...it will almost come out to the same price, minus the shipping.

You don't have to run there exhaust if you don't want to! You can run just a plain pipe with the H&S, you don't need to plug your sensors back in with there tuner!!!
