Exhaust

Do you get much of a performance difference in exhaust systems, for example pro flow versus mbrp or is it just a difference in sound? How difficult is to install a 4'' turbo back system? The shop wants 150 for install or 495 for
a Pro Flow 4'' tubo back including install, what do you guys think is it worth it?

Get a farmboy diesel exhaust and install yourself i just finished mine all you need is a buddy and install instructions from dieselmanor.com hardest part is removing the band clamp that connects the turbo and downpipe. To that get a 1/4" drive ratchet and a 11mm deep well socket loosen bolt on band clamp all the way but dont remove the nut cause you dont want to lose it. Then with a small flathead screwdriver pry the clamp away from the turbo and downpipe. It really is easy take about an hour and a half.

If I can do it, anybody can do it! It's easier with an extra hand to help and a hacksaw, but I did mine by myself and all of the cutting with a hacksaw.

Finally put my Farm Boys exhaust on 2 weeks ago and I love it... And they are right. Hardest part is taking off the old stuff, mainly the down pipe, and then figureing out which piece goes where (less a kitty)...Easy

+1 on the sawz-all. Makes quick work of cutting those pipes out!! Exhaust is not so much a HP issue as it is a performance one. It helps the truck expell exhaust gases and heat quicker than stock and leads to lower EGT's which is a good thing. Probably not much of a difference in systems if their all straight piped. Some other differences might be quality of materials used and what type.

Yah definately a sawz-all is the way to go with taking out the factory exhaust, otherwise it's alot of work to get the downpipe out in one piece. I just installed an AFE stainless turbo back system yesterday out front of my house in anticipation for the SCT Livewire that I will be ordering in a day or two. I just went and bought myself a sawz-all to do the job cuz I figure if I need to buy a tool to do a job right, it's better than paying that money to have someone else do it and not get any new tools.
