Diamond Eye vs. Flo Pro 5" exhaust

I'm looking for everyone's opinion on these two exhaust systems. How is the overall quality vs each other, fittment, and the biggest thing is the exit of the exhaust. If possible can guys post pics of their exhaust and how it exits the rear of their truck.

I'm sure both are good quality exhaust, I'd just like some input from guys who are already running these systems.

Thanks

I have a diamond eye 5" and it was a breeze to install, it was way harder to remove the stock exhaust. The fit and everything was great. If your doing the down pipe you will need a sawzall or torch to cut the factory one.

I have a 5" flo pro and the fit was good. I really like the way the exhaust exits. I went with the DP back exhaust at first, and have since added an AFE 4" DP.

here is my 4" diamond eye on my 05 just for an idea, diamond eye tends to exit more out the side while flo-pro exits more at an angle towards the bumper.





here is 3 pics of my magnaflow, it exits alot like the flo pro exhausts

My 5" Flo Pro w/6" in tip looks just like blackcloud2k's, but, I have my stainless tip sticking out farther...about even with the outside edge of the tire.

Go with what you can get the best price on...both are quality products!

@blackcloud2k-- you need some new tires, Bro!!! LOL...and, we live close...where in the FOCO area do you live, PM me! I'm in Broomfield.

I've had both. I prefer Flo-Pro myself.

Also, comparing an exhaust from a truck other than an 08-10 truck isn't going to show anything relevant to this thread. Exhaust systems for 08-10 trucks exit differently than exhaust systems for a 7.3 or a 6.0.....just saying.

I wish I would have bumped the tip out another inch or so, but I like the nice tucked look. Only reason I would want it out a tad more is so my bumper wasnt always painted with soot.

Those pics were taken almost 2 years ago. lol. Ive gone through 2 sets since then.
