So with my needs in life changing (going back to school, new job, etc.), I came to the conclusion to sell my '83 K20 Chevy and my '93 DD Cadillac and buy a 2WD truck. This way it is easier for me to only feed one vehicle's needs but still have fun at the same time. Enter: the purpose of this thread. I am the proud new owner of a 1996 GMC Sierra SLT. After about a month of endless searching, I came across the truck in the next town over; practically right under my nose. Here are a few pics of it as it sits now. My goal is to make the truck a pratical DD while unleashing all of it's potential via a series of bolt on performance parts. After selling my K20 and the Cadillac, I estimate to have approximately $2,500 left over to play with after the cost of the truck. My plans as of now are as follows: -Remove and sell the cap; IMO full truck caps look terrible. -Purchase/install hard or soft tonneau cover -Reverse the tires so that the white letters are showing instead of black walls; just a preference of mine. -Repair some rust starting at the bottom of the doors and cab. -Full exhaust system including a Magnaflow or Flowmaster American Thunder cat back system. -Free flowing catalytic converters and intermediate pipes from Magnaflow. -Edelbrock equal length headers. -K&N or Volant cold air intake. -Ported stock throttle body. -Aftermarket mass air flow sensor from JET Performance. -Computer reprogram The truck has a factory towing package which included a 3:73 gear and a limited slip carrier with a transmission cooler so those are 3 less things I need to update. Other mods I've considered (but only if I have some money left over): -2" suspension drop in front, 3-4" drop in rear. -Cowl induction or ram air style hood (for looks). -Electronic exhaust cutouts from Race Ready Performance. -Mickey Thompson E/T street tires for summer -Dual electric fans The first mod I will be doing is the cat back system. I've narrowed my choices down to the Flowmaster or Magnaflow systems I've listed above. I'm looking for the freest flowing system with the best sound and the most longevity. The Flowmaster system hits the wallet for a hair more than $400, while the Magnaflow system hurts a little more at about $550. Which would be a better choice?
