Best exhaust..

I am looking for the best overall exhaust system for my truck.
I think Stainless Steel is a must.
I think a Cat will be a must as well since I live in NJ, although I do not know what the inspection procedures are for a diesel passenger car in NJ.
I have an 05 EX, 6.0
I have an SCT, where i will be getting Vivians custom tunes.
Not looking for anything overly loud or obnoxious.
I do not tow anything with this truck.
Would like the system that would produce the most HP though.

Please let me know your opinions.

Thanks.

First off you aren't going to see any noticeable gains in power or anything but sound from a new exhaust. Get what you want. The MBRP, Diamond Eye , Magnaflow, etc. are all nice. Go for the best deal.

Any of the 4" turbo back systems one the market will work, with a 3.5" DP. Since you are keeping the cat, don't worry about finding a 4" DP, as the CAT is 3.5" anyway. Save you a little money that way, and with the EX a 4" DP may have issues fitting cleanly.

MBRP is what I went with, great product, and easy install. The DP is really the only part where an extra set of hands are a must.
