I will have to see what it sounds like when towing, if it is to loud then I will have to order a straight through muffler.

I kinda wish I had waited till after my trip next week, so that I could see what the MPG difference is. Oh well...
nice work

The 03-04 get a few mpgs better than the 04.5 and up. I think the 03-04 have a frame or engine mounted lift pump that tends to be problematic, or so it seems from all the posts on the diesel sites.

Do some research on one of the several diesel truck sites out there: TDR, Dieselresource, Cumminsforum, etc. Just beware, after visiting them you'll wonder how the truck even runs without extra filters, aftermarket lift pumps, fuel additives, etc. :chiefwoohaw: :chiefwoohaw::chiefwoohaw:

My 05 CTD is the identical twin to yours and it been the best truck I've owned so far (9 not counting heeps) though I was hoping for better mpgs. Hope yours serves you well.
