MBRP Exhaust

Been reading the posts here and seems MBRP is THE exhaust. But why? Fit, finish, price?

Also, I've pretty much decided on an aluminized set up. Seems the off-road package from MRBP is the way to go. But what's the difference between the Performance and Installer series?

Is a tip necessary or is it just for show?

Thanks for tolerating the new guy questions. Try to search these things here, but with dial up being slowwwwwww, doesn't take long to start pulling hair out.

the diff between those exhaust is aluminized or stainless steel. the stainless is going to last you a lot longer. performance wise its not a night and day difference, maybe a few extra hp but not much at all.

If your winter roads are treated with salt go with SS.

MBRP sells 3 grades when buying, aluminized, and two grades of Stainless Steel. Aluminzed is cheaper but won't last too long in salt spray. I went with the mid grade SS and have had happy results with one year of salt blasting under my belt. I got my set up from elite diesel, great people to deal with and didn't take long to arrive. I welded mine but the clamps are heavy duty stainless steel. I originally went with the straight rolled lip tip and it sucked! I just bought and installed the the angled mitered tip, fit and finish is worth the extra bucks, plus you get the MBRP logo right on the tip.

My buddy also has a 6.4 and piped it, don't remember the make but it sounds good from idle to about 1,500 but after that it sounds like crap. This is where MBRP shines, you get the nice wet fart sound in the higher RPM's. I have always had great luck with MBRP, I got two sleds with their silencers on them and love it

Have fun and make sure when you install the muffler you have the direction the right way, better sound and flow. You will get that famous whistle.

I look at it in a couple differnt ways which of course depends upon where you live in the country.

If you plan on keeping your truck for a while or live in the salt belt go with stainless. T409 will be great, it will eventually show oxidation but will hold up to severe elements

Nothing wrong with aluminized systems and they can be purchased for under $300. They will last for years as well.

MBRP is just the name brand that everyone gets. Stainless pipe is stainless pipe, it doesn't matter who you buy it from just as long as you get mandrlin bent. (sorry can't spell) My 5 inch was cheaper then MBRP's 4 inch.
