Whoopower

I'm new to this game and come from the jeep world. I got an 08 250 to tow my 1 ton jeep on stickies.

I'm looking at the H&S Mini, exhaust, and other delete items. What are the good companies for exhaust and does 1" diameter in pipe size make a difference?

What about intakes?

Other recomendiations?

I came from a Jeep and F150 gasser, but coming from the jeep perspective the suspension is a lot alike.

After reading for a while on this site i have found that Spartan and the Mini Maxx are very popular as well as a nice product. I went with the Mini Maxx as I really liked the on the fly adjustments and all the settings you can mess with. Im really happy with it, but ive never owned anything else either. There are some threads of reviews of guys that have had both if you search you may come across them......I went with the 5" flo pro exhaust from the downpipe back. For the money it does exactly what i want, which is delete the DPF and give a little different not,e to the exhaust. You have a little bit lower tone with the bigger pipe, but not alot to make much difference, so unless you want to change the sound completely a straight through exhaust isnt what you want, also get a muffler.
MBRP is pretty popular, but i think its kinda pricey. If i were to do it over again id do the dual rear exit behind each tire....I did PTP's EGR delete, Not installed yet....and S&B intake is what i went with mainly because it was highly recommended and had good reviews.

Appreciate it.

I still have my jeeps. I love wheeling, rocks that is, and although i can rotate 4 wheels I won't be wheeling this heavy pig.

I'm about to 4 link my front and rear 1 ton tj with 14" or 16" c/o's. I also have on 04 rubi that's on 35's that I'll wheel and DD. Broke a rear chromoly shaft the other week and having a time getting the bearing race out of the tube. Slidding hammer and tourch aren't doing it. Cutting the SOB out.

AFE 4" would be my first choice. Flo-Pro 5" would be my second choice. You'll see no performance difference with either, just a sound difference.

If you want quite any of the above will work, just get the muffler option.

They are all quite. The larger exhaust and mufflers people are buying, is to do away with the "hairdryer" sound the exhaust makes after the delete.

MBRP makes very nice kits that come with mufflers, I suggest going that route. 4" vs 5" is a matter of opinion, but 4" is all you really need. 5" does look and sound great though on the 6.4L.

For the intake, I would go with S&B. They are the best intake on the market and priced right.

Other things to look at would be EGR delete (PTP) and cold side IC pipe (MBRP or Flo-Pro).

Give us a holler or shoot me a PM if youd like a quote on a package deal.
