Default List of Mods Need some help on Brands and if anyone has personal input

So i'm trying to budget out my performance mods
Here's my list

Also wondering which ones would most likely void the warrantee

Exhaust/ Magnaflow Corsa

Headers/ Long tube Shortys ????

Intake: Vararam?? BFI?? Volant??

Diablo Sport Predator Tuner??

Just wanting some input on who's had these and the gains

Thanks

I run magnaflows, pacsetter LT's, BFI and Diablo... I'm at 180k now (pretty much had most installed by 70k) but I don't know about warranty on it (dealer would have to prove that specific part was part of any issue if anything goes wrong).. as for performance, those are the core parts that helped immensely in my performance improvement.

Hey man!

The exhaust I would recommend getting a Gibson since i have one and I love it!! haha

Headers go with long tube!!! For your year truck spend a little money and get the Dynatech set of headers!! They come with high flow cats and also a Y pipe. This is the full set up you need!

The Predator is a really good tuner and if you plan on doing all these mods it would work great!

For the CAI I think the BFI has the best reviews by the guys on this forum! I have the S&B CAI in my truck and they claim to have the best gains out of the box style intakes. They are also well priced and made in the USA which makes it a really good CAI! I am the only member with it and I really want to see more people with it since it works very well!

I'd go with the Corsa, Volant, long tubes, and predator. The corsa exhaust is great, and coupled with the CAI and programmer you'll get the most out of those three. I chose the Volant as it's a solid intake, the BFI is very patchy on getting one these days, and the Vararam may work, but it looks WAY too weird with the two snorkels that can take up water and it takes up a lot of engine bay room. The programmer will void the warranty if you're found to have it installed, so just reload the stock tune before servicing. The long tubes will get you better low-end performance.

Soo does that mean you have heard bad things about the Vararam?? or just speculating the look.. I was worried about that too since i live in Michigan with Snow and Rain.. Dirty Roads/ Crappy Highways..

I'm leaning towards them right now.. for $300 can't really beat that but the Volant looks a little bit more practical for a daily driver
