About to Pull the Trigger on a 4" Turbo Back

I'm getting ready to buy a 4" turbo-back exhaust for my 2006 6.0. What is the "Cadillac" of after market exhaust systems with regard to fit and finish, overall quality and performance? Are there any manufacturers that you would stay away from? Any recommedations where to buy? I plan on buying a system where I can remove and reinstall the CAT as needed. This is the first of several mods and I want to get it right from the get-go. Any help is appreciated.

It sounds like a turbo back MBRP system would be your best bet. You can bolt in your cat really easy if needed and they fit excellent on these trucks. Many members have them and I'm sure would recommend them. I love mine and would buy it again. You can get these exhaust systems from numerous vendors in the vendor section.

I put a magnaflow on my 04 and current 05. Turbo back w/o the cat. Great quality and sounds awesome when you nail it. Otherwise it's pretty tame.

I have a MBRP 4 inch on my 2002 and it was an easy install. I traded out with my local shop for a piece of straight pipe. I would recommend MBRP to anyone.

I got the 4 in. mbrp turbo back black series, it is meant to keep the factory cat, but I also bought their cat delete/test pipe and inststalled it with that, so I could put the cat back in if need be. I am pleased with the mbrp kit. hope this helps.

If you have a Harley Davidson truck I would go with 304 Stainless Hog Performance exhaust. I thought Hog exhaust on Harley truck was just too punny to resist. I would call it the "Lincoln" of exhaust systems. The 4" downpipe is a pain to install but that would be my only complaint. All of the hangers are welded to exhaust clamps not the side of the pipe. This is better because if you tear one off you should only harm the clamp and not ripe a hole in your exhaust pipe. I really like mine.
