Best cat back system

Hey guys......newbie to the Diesel world and was wondering what you guys suggest? I've heard good and bad about MagnaFlow, but not a whole lot about anything else.............any advice would be greatly appreciated. Looking for more sound than performance. Thanks!

I know there are a lot of personal opinions on which is best, but as long as it's mandrel bent (most, if not all are) and fits correctly..they are basically the same....I chose the least expensive system. JMHO

One other thing to consider, unless you live in an enviroment where there are lots of contaminants (ie. salt) the aluminized systems will work fine and last a very long time.

I agree with Choctaw. I have an MBRP aluminized 4" cat back on my truck and it is holding up great (running it for a little over a year) I would personally recommend MBRP as I found their parts to be good quality and had excellent fit and finish. But, that is the only exhaust I have dealt with on my PowerStroke. So I am biased somewhat

X2 on the MBRP - and the aluminumized for longevity for normal conditions

Just remember the cat will cut down on the noise to a degree.

And like I said originally...all the systems are basically the same.

Just choose the one you like best and go for it.

Awesome guys! I appreciate it............Any ideas on where to find the best priced system at? I saw some on eBay, but I'm real skeptical of some of that stuff on there, especially exhaust items. I live on the coast, so aluminum would be my pick for sure.

MBRP for sure. If you dont have any emissions to worry about go with the turbo back, cat delete....Good Luck

I went with a MBRP turbo back system, cat delete and it screams. When I took the stock system out, it looked like the down pipe had some sort of resonator in it as well, probably cuts down on the loudness as well as the cat. Just my 2 cents, good luck.

There's no point doing a cat back, save your money for other upgrades. A mandrel bent 3.5" downpipe and cat delete would have much more affect.
