what exhaust , and any gain in mpg?

hi i want to get a exhaust from my truck.04 f250 just wounding what everyone thinks is the best set up for $600 or less i been thinking about the mbrp 409ss turbo back . did any one really see and gain in mileage i'll more then likely keep the cat and the straight through muffler to start out. i would love to see a change in mileage like mrbrp clams 1-2mpg so i can justify the cost and tell my self in 40 or 50 fill ups ill be saving my self money.the truck is all stock so im sure ill see at least 1mpg . btw im happy with the mileage my truck gets now just want start nodding my truck and want a excuse to start the addiction. thanks sorry i know there are a lot of threads about exhaust none of the ones i saw did say anything about any mileage gains . so thanks again

if your looking to go with a SS kit the MBRP kits are great....

as far as MPG gains i doubt you will see anything noticeable or to rave about... you will get better flow and lower egt's out of an exhaust system....

if your looking to just go with an AL kit our budget kits are priced right.... let me know i you have any questions on either kits....

the 409 wont rust through but will build surface rust.. the 304 stays shiny for its life but is a lot more expensive....

and yah... your going to be loving the sound the exhaust that your going to be putting your foot in it a lot more lol.. prob see less MPG

The MBRP is a great kit, even better if you need to swap you CAT in and out at inspection time, no more than 10 min. I got the 409 SS and never expected 3 years of road salt to take it's toll like it did but oh well, Live and learn. A few years down the road you might be looking for a set of stacks
