Default 180 t-stat, y-pipe & muffler

These are my next three mods. Before I purchase them I want to make sure they will fit my truck. Also any input would be appreciated.

JET 10183 Thermostat

Magnaflow 10778 Stainless Steel Exhaust Y-Pipe

Magnaflow 12249 Satin Stainless Steel 3" Center Oval Muffler

Those look good to me. If that Jet t-stat is the 180*, then that ismthe same one that I have installed in my truck. I also just added the same Magnaflow y-pipe with a 3" electric cutout right after it and a 14" Magnaflow 3" SI/SO muffler. I'm not sure what the part # was for my Mag as the performacee shop who did all of my recent upgrades ordered it for me.

Here are a few pics.....

you can get the autozone 4128 tstat..it's a direct fit, probably cheaper, and has the blocker on it which helps the engine warm up to engine temp faster..

Y pipe an mag part numbers are a good choice... you'll never have to worry about upgrading it during any other mod process..

Hey guys,

What's the purpose of this electric cutout I've seen mentioned a couple of times here as of late?

It is there to bypass your muffler and make your truck loud as hell!
