MBRP Exhaust ?

I just purchased my first 6.0 F-250 with 68k. I have decided on a 4" Turbo Back Exhaust but not sure if I want to get the one that retains the stock cat and purchase the cat delete pipe, or get the "off road" model. I definitely am going to run with the cat off but was thinking if I ran into any problems in the future I can put it back on. Everyone I know is running with the cat off though. I live in the western foothills/Mtns of North Carolina, which doesn't do diesel emissions.

Also decided on a SCT X3 with Custom Tunes from Eric. Do I need to purchase these items all together or can I do it a step at a time. Not looking at a lot of towing, but will be doing some occasionally. I have read I need gauges also, but looking at the check book it may have to be a drawn out process.....Thanks for the input....

2007 F-250 CC SB Fx4, 69K Automatic, All stock at the moment.

4 Inch Turbo back. with cat and muffler delete.

SCT with tunes

Gauges as well, alot of folks like the Insight now so you dont have all the gauges, personally I like the 747 pilots area look LOL. Since it blocked out ****pit.

I would recommend doing the gauges before the SCT. Without knowing it, you can get the EGT's up there pretty quick which isn't good.

I have the 4" MBRP turbo with CAT delet but kept the muffler because it is easier and cheaper for me to unbolt test pipe and put CAT back in here in Cali for the SMOG. I also have the SCT X3 with Erics tunes and so far love it. Have to get used to shift points to find out if I want him to tweak the trans a lil. Also have the CTS for gauges. I dont think you can get the X3 without getting tunes, meaning I dont think the X3 comes with canned tunes. I could be wrong. I did the CTS and probe before I did the SCT. Just to see where my temps and parameters are at before I do anything to the computer for tuning.

Well, NC doessnt do emissions but i'd say they would be one of the next ones due to as strict as the DOT is.

And BTW, check us out in the Carolina Powerstroke Association (CPA). Its for all us NC/ SC guys.

The one and only thing on my truck so far is a SCT. I run the trans only tune right now till i get gauges/exhaust. Its very important to me to save the transmission, because you can tune it easily for DD and towing.

Well you should be able to get all three for right around 1200.00. I got my MBRP Aluminized TB off road kit from Performance Truck Products. It was 312.00 to my door. I got it right around Black Friday. I got my Edge Insight at the same time and that was 350.00 with EGT Probe and Pillar mount. My SCT I got on eBay for 349.00 and the tunes from Gearhead Automotive.

If you have to do it in steps I would go Insight, Exhaust and Tuner.

Just installed the MBRP 4" with cat and muffler delete and it sounds great, and runs nice! even the downpipe was easy as hell to install.

No it wont do anything to hurt it, only thing is if you have emission in your area if not pull it out and store it somewhere.
