Exhaust opinions

I'm going to be ordering a 4" TB today. My options are:

MBRP w/ cat delete and 5" tip

or

FBD w/ cat delete


Which would you choose?
The MBRP is $9.00 more, much less than to add a tip to the FBD kit.

Thanks

Go with the MBRP. Just put a Cat Back on my 06 very easy to install. Some penetrating oil on the hangers. A 15mm wrench and a good sawzall. Cut the exhaust pipe behind the muffler. and start pulling it out. The Down tube is a bugger as they advise you to loosen the Transmission cross member. There is enough room to cut the old pipe into two and get is out of there.

Good Luck

It looks like he meant the shape of it by cat back... as in cat backing over the rear axle... he referenced the downpipe, so i believe he's talking about a turbo back system as well.

Another vote for MBRP. It is nice to have the option to bolt the catalytic converter back in place if the need arises. Check our site for pricing. Let me know if I can help with anything.
