Not entirely true, especially if your truck came with a single out exhaust. The factory muffler is still restrictive when compared to a straight through design like Magnaflow, Corsa, and Borla. The factory pipes are very high quality, which is why most people with factory duals go with a muffler swap and y-pipe to reduce resistance and (of course) make it sound how they want it to. The same goes for the intake, a drop in will do well for most people but if you do a lot of highway driving or are doing some high horsepower mods then any amount of resistance you can reduce greatly improves the engines efficiency.
