you will be fine.......the UDP combined with an efan would be nice for your truck.....since the Jusnes efan's pull more cfm than the stock fan does....

I don't really want an efan, I need reliability. I actually have a spare fan clutch in my truck and all the tools to change it if the stock one ever goes. I don't want to be stranded with the boat...

dont forget ive had a flowmaster at one time too, and a magnaflow and now i have a borla.

i know what the flowmaster does.

04+ will get better mpg they have a different program running on the PCM.

04+ has one less CAT too.
is it the rear most cat???

how do you increase your mpg by going to forced induction? i mean, you're shoving more air in there so in order to keep things from leaning out too much you've gotta shove some more gas in there too.

i see the argument from the other side: more power equates to less stress on the right pedal, but that just doesn't hold up.

go talk to an audi owner and see which gets better mileage, the 2.8 or the 2.7 biturbo, or the 4.2 in the S4/S6/A8 or the 4.2 biturbo in the RS6.

turbochargers and blowers will not help your fuel economy by themselves. your best bet is to grab a tonneau, be easy with the air conditioning, keep up with your tune-ups and just take 'er easy on the gas pedal.
