Exhaust

I know a lot of people are running MBRP. In all reality is there any difference from MBRP and Banks. I've always watched the shows on TV and read articles about Banks being the best out there. So is there a difference, or 6 in one half dozen in the other?

Ya Even Powerblock did some shows on them. I have been told that their products are not that great quality wise, "told". For what you get Banks is very expensive. MBRP is a much better choice for the price and product.

Banks sells many producs for the 6.0. The only thing I will buy from them is their technicooler, Nothing else.

Rolling smoke makes a good product. I was told that they make exhausts for name brands. I think you can get an aluminum turbo back for 299 shipped.

so you are saying a small company makes exhaust for a large company? sounds a little far fetched to me.... when it comes to exhaust systems you get what you pay for... i personally will only run stainless kits (unless aluminzed is given to me) IMHO if you are going to buy an exhaust system, get one that wont rust and will last a while... for the little extra it costs stainless is well worth it

Sure small companies make stuff for larger companies all the time. I worked in a chemical factory and the same exact fluid was going into Peak Antifreeze and other name brands as was going into knockoffs. I don't know about the exhaust first hand, just comparing apples to apples. I would get stainless as well.

I know chemical companies and what not share stuff... but when a large automotive aftermarket company has a ton of demand and small one man operation, even a small 3 or 4 man operation wouldnt be able to keep up with production...

I mean I make Bumpers for another larger company, but I am a fairly large operation for manufacturing so yes large companies make stuff for larger companies but small companies would have a hard time keeping up with production for very large companies... that is my point... not saying its not true... just saying its far fetched
