Exhaust for an 03 6.0

Hey guys.

I'm new here and am also new to both diesel trucks and Fords. After the government got a hold of GM I traded in my Chevy and ended my streak of GM vehicles. I have an '03 f350 ext. cab and was thinking about exhaust. I'm not to sure about what to look for, this will be my first on a diesel. I don't want to spend a whole lot of money but want something that sounds good, improves mileage a little, and maybe smokes a little more. What should I look into? Also I was wondering what kind of things I should look into if I decided on a single stack too. Let me know what yall have and what I should look into.

Thanks

As far as mileage not much if any. Check out Raul@stealthautomotive or Gus at Farmboys Diesel for the best prices.

I would go with straight pipe, My 03 is straight piped through stacks and I got about an extra 1-2 mpg.

I love my straight piped '03. The sound is amazing. I'm thinking about going to a single stack for a little while, just for something different.
