6.4L Exhaust Recommendation

Hello,

I have a 2008 F-250 6.4L 6 Speed manual extended cab. I overall enjoy the truck very much, I bought it with an SCT tuner and DPF delete attached to the stock exhaust. I am looking for a "bolt" on kit for my truck, what do you guys recommend for something very easy to install to something that already has a dpf delete on the truck?

Thanks

I reccomend the Flo-Pro. Very easy to install, and you dont have to cut the pipe loike I had to on my 2000 F-250's MBRP. Uses the good band style clamps, everything slips together, and it sounds lean and mean.
My only gripe is the installation instructions could have at least said "use these pipes for these trucks" instead of letting you figure it out when you are installing it.

MBRP, Diamond Eye, Flo-Pro, and AFE are all good choices. The best fitting kits we have found are from MBRP.

Easy to install would be one of the bigger brands and do down pipe back. The stock down pipe has to be cut out and is dual walled and can be a pain without the right tools so down pipe back is 2 bolts and really easy to do.

Thanks for the advice guys, I am assuming there is a Cat Convertor in this exhaust system? Are you guys running without CAT's? When you order the kit do you order it with the bungs?

Thanks

Yes, there is a catalyst in front of the DPF. It is removed with a turbo back kit, down pipe back kit, or DPF/Cat delete pipes.

If you are getting an H&S or Spartan tuner no bungs are necessary.

I got the 5" downpipe back flow pro from ptp. I had to do a little trimming on the pipes, nothing major. Those band clamps are great! When your putting the last piece on that humps over the rear end, it helps to jack up the rear about 2' when removing & replacing that last piece.

Hello, I need some advice from anyone who is willing to help me out. Iv got an 08 6.4 and I'm planning on installing the flo pro 5inch down pipe, I'm going to use the minni max tuner. Any suggestions on whether i should go with a turbo back or down pipe back? my goal is not to race this truck or make extreme crazy horsepower. Is this a fairly easy install? Also do i need to block my EGR? if so what would be the best way? I heard the EGR blocks will be fine....Hows the install on those? Any suggestions or advice would be help full. All i want to do is install this exhaust to get rid of my cat and dpf, i want to do it the safest and easiest way with out causing any problems.

You would be fine with a downpipe back & yes the exhaust is easy to install. Just try & have some help removing the stock stuff because it is heavy. H&S disables the egr on mild and hot damm tuning but for extra precaution alot of people actually remove the components as well. It is a fairly time consuming job but nothing a few beers and some patients can't help out with. Also you don't need bungs in the exhaust system because h&s dpf off tuning disables them.
