Turbo back vs down pipe back exhaust

I'm debating on exhaust. I see turbo backs and down pipe backs. Probably just going to run straight pipes with no mufflers. What would be better and what are the advantages of which ever is better. What brands do you guys recommend, I see some mixed reviews. As for tuners, i want decent power, with a turbo timer, dpf delete, and egr tune off. Extreme tunes are not neccessary, I tear apart plenty of 6.0s and Cummins with melted and blown up pistons at work.

Funny, just researching this. I don't know enough to figure whether to go just downpipe back or turbo back.

I've got emission testing where I'm at so I want ease of removal too. I'll be watching this one.

No need in a turbo timer. These trucks are stout in stock form. Pretty reliable with big tunes. Do some research, you'll learn that pretty quick.

With a tuner, intake, and exhaust you can make a reliable 550 horsepower (yes, dyno proven, track proven horsepowe) with a stock motor and stock transmission.

As far the exhaust, I recommend either MBRP or Diamond Eye. Turbo back or downpipe back is going to be fine. Problem with the downpipe is that the stock needs to be cut out unless you move the transmission over or remove the cab. If you want to keep your stock downpipe intact, I suggest running a downpipe back exhaust. If your not that worried about it or want to spend the time to keep in one piece, go with a turbo back kit.

I would love to hear more on this post myself. I am preparing to do an exhaust upgrade myself. I'm not sure if the work and money is worth swaping the downpipe. I love the look of duals but want the best sound. Does the single sound better than the duals?

i have a single 5'' down pipe back and it sounds awesome!!!! i have heard that the 4" exhaust quiets it down a bit ,also duals sound and look great but most installs require removal of the spare tire , Not sure you would notice or need the power of the turbo back exhaust ,unless you were at the track all the time ,then i think its just a minimal gain , good luck with your discision , you wont be disappointed!!!

Good to know guys, thanks. What about the bungs? Are they necessary? If so, with what tuners. Hope I'm not stepping on toes by firing off a bunch of questions.

You do not need bungs with the Spartan Phalanx.
