Which Exhaust

Hi, I have an '05 F250 and Im looking to put exhaust on her. I can't decide on either the MBRP 4" single or Magnaflow 4". Is there a differance between exhaust or is just the name that raises the prices? Thanks for any info

I have a 5 inch Magnaflow on my '05 from the turbo back. No issues with rubbing with the downpipe. You cant go wrong with either system, both are great in quality and fitment.

What does MBRP mean? I have really always wondered that, that and WOT? Never figured out what they meant, lol. I have 4" TB exhaust on my truck. For the most part, you're just buyin' the name. About any brand is pretty good.

most all those kits only come with a 3.5" DP... no real advantage buying a actual 4" DP... go with the one that is cheapest because straight piped they all sound the same

Just use the downpipe that is supplied with the kit.

james,

what size down pipe are you runing? my magnaflow kit came with a true 4in and i hate it way to tight and i get a slight drone from it rubbing under a load.

keep in mind that the magnaflow is 409steel but for some reason they use black steel for hardware so you will get rust if you use the supplied band clamps and bolts.
