We have been having great luck with the New MBRP pipe. The first batch had some fitment issues, but the new ones are doing great.

MBRP 6.4L IC Pipe

I bought one of the mbrp pipes from ptp, it fit great and seemed to help some with throttle response. here are a few pictures of it.

Please educate me on why you would want to change it. What is the reason for changing from the stock one and what does it do? Thanks ahead of time for any info. Still trying to learn all this stuff as i am a virgin to diesels lol.

All you need to do is go lift your hood up and look at the stock one. Seeing the factory one and how crimped it it is enough to justify replacing it. You will see some improvement with the factory intake elbow still in place, but you would see the most benefit if you did a CFM+ or Dirty Diesel intake elbow with the aftermarket CAC pipe.

The companies that make them are....

1. Elite Diesel Engineering
2. Street Diesel Performance
3. MBRP Performance Exhaust
4. River City Diesel
5. Dirty Diesel Customs

There may be a few others, but those are the most popular.

I hear their pipe is still crimped in a spot so that it clears the core support.

I don't believe changing it will make any difference. Has anyone flow-bench tested the stock one against the mbrp unit? What difference did they see in characteristics?

Almost $200 for a polished pipe....come on.!.!

I bet there is a reduction in EGT's and slightly better spool up with an aftermarket CAC pipe. We are talking about a 3" in diameter flow through pipe the whole way versus a crimped pipe that probably drops down to 1-1.5" in diameter through the core support. The more air we can get out of these trucks, the better. This is probably my next modification. I just haven't decided if I want to do the Elite dual pipe, or one of the single 3" pipes.

I would still like someone to flow-bench it just to rule out what I'm saying. MBRP vs. Stock, just so we have "real" proof.
