TURBO BACK or DOWN PIPE back?

Brand Newbie here.. I just bought a 2010 F350 and I also have another exhaust question. I have already purchased the H &S XRT Pro tuner and now I'm exhaust hunting.. Wanted some opinions as to what was better, turbo back or downpipe back 5", or 4"? Looking at Diamond Eye just for the cost. Anyone have any feedback on that brand or another brand that would be better for a reasonable price?

Thanks Diesel Wizards...

Turbo back always. That downpipe looks like Ford put one pipe inside another and beat the he'll out of it. Also a new downpipe drops EGTs a good amount.

Went with the 5" downpipe back diamond eye. If you can turn a wrench this is definitely a diy job. Heard that turbo back can be a biotch. Also depends on where you live too.

Have fun with your new toy and welcome!

Also, talk to the guys at PTP if you haven't already started hunting. They will hook you up.

Thanks for the input.. Will probably go with the diamond eye just to save a few bucks, hopefully I wont regret it. I know the H&S website says with XRT to get exhaust w/no bungs, would it make a difference if it had bungs or not?

You can order full packages with exhaust tuner and intake. You WILL NOT regret it! Free shipping too.

As for the bungs I know H&S doesn't require bungs. Some tuners do.

As I understand, the turbo back isn't that difficult if you don't mind destroying the stock downpipe. Otherwise, its a pain in the ***.
