You probably recognize Summit Racing's name as a supplier of aftermarket parts, but this aluminized diesel exhaust system is from the company's own line. You can get a four- or five-inch downpipe for enhanced pulling power at highway speeds and use an actual diesel muffler to resist clogging. The systems will fit 2001-2004 Chevy and GMC three-quarter- and one-ton extended and Crew Cabs with the 6.6-liter, 1999-2003 Ford trucks with the 7.3-liter, and 1999-2002 5.9-liter-equipped Dodge Rams. The four-inch-diameter systems run about $300; the five-inchers are around $400.

Designed for the 2008-2010 6.4-liter, 1999-2003 7.3-liter, and 2003-2007 6.0-liter Power Stroke, it offers five power levels, wheel/tire and gear adjustment, speed and rev-limiter adjustment, shift-pressure adjustment, diagnostics, and monitoring. You'll be able to tune out an overly sensitive pedal, engine surge, and abrupt shifts.
