Default Performance Help

Been a while since I last posted but I have some questions that I need help with. First, I just bought the Diablo tuner which I haven't used yet cause I'm deployed. But I am wanting to add headers. What headers are best? Also my local muffler shop said adding a y pipe isn't going to make a bit of difference. Is this true? I have one just haven't put it on. Also, is adding true duals gonna make a difference performance wise?? I know the sound would be incredible with headers. I am thinking about doing this but if it isn't gonna help performance wise I'm not gonna do it. Thanks for reading. Hope to have lots of feedback. Once I'm home from the desert I'm gonna go to town with my truck.

Yea that's a pretty solid list, I would add an 87mm TB to that as well. Or a RIPP supercharger kit. All of which we carry.

tell your muffler guy to get under the truck and see the stock Y...if it's anything like the 3rd gens..yes, a Y makes a HUGE difference...

pinched stock Y...

Thanks for the replies. Yea I'm gonna do the torque converter soon but wanna do a few other things first. I think in gonna do a true dual set up when I get back from my deployment. I'm thinking of running a 2 muffler set up. Haven't decided on that yet. Once I get home I'm also gonna play with the diablo unwr I bought and then get with hemifevertuning and get it tuned.
