Exhaust...

Ok i have decided to put a 4" turbo back (no cat) exhaust on my dd 2006 f350. There are so many choices i need a little bit of help narrowing down what i should go with. 1. Go with SS or alum? I live in Houston TX 2. muffler or no muffler? 3. Brands? im liking MBRP for the price. and finally 4. Tip or straight pipe? i want a good loud throaty sound but nothing to ridiculous.

I ended up getting silverline SS 4" exhaust and I couldn't be happier. Sounds great and comes with a nice tip and muffler(can remove) and all the hangers and clamps you need. I live in the salt belt so rust is an issue. I bought a kit from hog performance I think and the down pipe wouldn't fit my truck, after two of them I gave up. I put the silverline on my truck in 15min at lunch. It has a 3.5" downpipe which is plenty big. A true 4" downpipe is a very tight fit, unless it has been squeezed somewhere.

I have the 4" stainless HOG exhaust w/ 5" down pipe and 5.5" tip. No cat. Small muffler. Sounds like a jet. I'd get it again.

Get the SS. It lasts longer than the aluminized cheaper steel. I have the 4" DP, and it was a bear, but it fit. Muffler or no muffler. Don't think it matters on the 6.0. Their straight pass through, and don't do much. The t-back exhaust on the 6.0 sound wierd if you haven't heard one before. Just whistles at idle.
