Diamond Eye 5" turbo back single

Looking for a sweet 5" exhaust set up and I came across this one from Diamond Eye. Does anyone have any knowledge, experience with it?

I've heard that it's usually tough to get in a 4" dp, but this kit says it comes with a 5" dp. It obviously works or else they would'nt make one, but it would probably be pretty tough to get in, right?

That is just a 5" Exhuast with a 4" downpipe if im not mistaken... 5" downpipe WILL NOT fit


I'd call and find out before ordering.

I have a 4" and it is the MAX that will fit in there... trust me

I agree. The diamond Eye kit has a 4 in dp and 5 in pipe from the dp back. There is no way to get a larger than 4 in downpipe on the truck. A 4 in downpipe is probably the largest you would want anyway even if it was possible to get a larger one. That is a good price and lots of guys around here like Diamond Eye.

I've always wanted stacks, and wanted a 5" kit, but I can't seem to find one with the kit and both stacks for less than around $850. So I figured I'd just go with a regular style exhaust for now and saw this one for a really good price, but wasn't sure about the size of the dp.

have you looked in the for sale section of the forum, I think I saw a couple of stack kits, from the turbo back. The guys were definitely asking less than $850.

Yeah, I'd like to go with 5" the first time. I haven't really done anything performance-mod wise to the truck yet, but when I do, (hopefully starting soon), I don't wanna have to go back and buy a second, bigger system.

...Work smarter, not harder

That's a good idea. There really isn't any advantage performance-wise to having a 5 inch over a 4 inch. It just sounds deeper and looks better

It does have a 5" down pipe. It's 5" from about 1/2" off the turbo flange all the way to the tail pipe. I really fought to get it in but it does fit with clearance all around.
