Exhaust Options for DPF Delete

I'm preparing to delete my DPF and run a spartan tuner. I have a question on what the best option for the truck is. I have narrowed it down to three options.

1. Flo-Pro 4" Downpipe / Flo-Pro 4" 409SS Downpipe Back Exhaust w/o Muffler.

2. AFE 4" Downpipe / AFE 4" 409SS Downpipe Back Exhaust w/ Muffler. (I don't believe they have a w/o muffler option)

3. Powerstroker67 4" Downpipe (Ceramic Coated) / Powerstroker67 DPF/CAT Delete Pipe (Ceramic Coated) / MBRP XP series 409SS 4" DPF Back Exhaust.

- Does any of these setups have an advantage over the other?
- Is it wise to keep the same manufacturers? Or is mixing acceptable?
- If it were you, what would you choose?
- Whats the best bang for the buck? (or should I not skimp on this?)

I appreciate any help.

I would use AFE or powerstrokers67 down pipe and his one piece delete pipe then whatever exhaust you like after that. some say Proflo stuff isn't the best, but other disagree

You won't be able to beat the quality of Sean's pipe. With the addition of an MBRP DPF back exhaust, it would be the perfect setup.

I installed the flo-pro doc/dpf delete pipe only because it had an exhaust hanger on it so I still had some support on the pipe. I had to order a pressure sensor fitting for it because it didnt have one but no big deal.

I think people are going to vote for whatever they are using. Flo-Pro and AFE both make excellent kits that fit/sound great. I run the Flo-Pro 4" straight pipe kit and love the way it sounds. I like a full system as opposed to piecing one together.

I've actually had all three, and going by quality.... Sean's pipe with a DPF back kit is the ultimate. I currently have a 4" AFE SS kit and I have no complaints at all.
