Turbo Back or Cat Back

I just spoke with someone at Mike's Off Road about an exhaust. He said they don't do too many turbo back on the 6.0 anymore b/c of decrease in backpressure causing CEL???

I see most of you have turbo back? What is the deal?

he quoted me $700 installed for MBR Cat back...sounded a little high to me.

guy has no idea whats hes talking about... the TB exhaust will not cause a CEL... and the whole backpressure thing... well its never been proven its needed....

and 700 is high...

what kidn of kit where you thinking about? i can get you a TB kit for half that price.... was it a AL or SS kit?

also why not do the install yourself.. its super easy and you only need basic hand tools to install it...

I am leaning to SS for looks and longevity...

having not ever done any exhaust work I have not looked into what all it entails. are most of these exhaust going to bolt up to the factory hangers?
no welding?

its no welding and yes it hooks up to the factor hangers... honestly its not that hard... the first time i ever did one it took me 4 hours and thats beacuse it was hard to get the old exhaust off....

you and a buddy can easily do it in that time frame too... i wouldnt waste your money on having someone do it.. esp not a cat back because thats even easier... and a cat back exhaust is not gonna get you any more performance....

we have 2 diff kits... if you want to keep your stock cat then this is the kit you want: MBRP 6.0 409 Stainless Steel Turbo-Back 03-07 F250/F350 (stock cat) CC/EC
they also have one without the cat if your interested in that one...

what a

go with the TB and save yourself some money and do it your self. As Raul already said, the hardest part is getting the old exhaust out and the new DP in.

A saws all (sp) and a can of WD-40 will come in handy for getting the old exhaust off. All you need to put the new exhaust on is some basic hand tools and a little bit of time. A case of beer and a good buddy doesnt hurt either

Whoever said that has no idea what he is talking about, I agree I think cat backs are just a waste, and 700 is way too high in my opinion. Go with the turbo back you will be very happy with it

so it looks like TB is the way to go. what is going to be the main diff between TB with the factory Cat, and without??

besides warranty, performance, noise, both?

thanks for all the promplt replies.
