2008 F250 Overhaul

I have finally decided to go ahead and do some performance upgrades, I am looking into a 5" Flo Pro turbo back or down pipe back exhaust, H&S Mini Maxx or Spartan Phalanx, and a S&B Intake with an EGR delete. I was just wanting some opinions or advice, mostly between people using Flo Pro exhaust and if it is a good company to go with and then I would like to see some user reviews and opinions on the H&S and Spartan. Thank you guys!

I really like the H&S! It is shift on the fly. Safety parameters are easy to adjust. Simple to use and I am getting 24mpg highway at 75mph. I am running the Diamond Eye 5" dp back with afe stage 2 intake.

I liked the tailpipe exit angle of the flo-pro over some of the other brands. I also like the mini maxx but you probably won't go wrong with either spartan or h&s.

Another vote for flo pro, they use band clamps vs the old scoop U brackets that bend the pipe. They do reend to tack weld the joints but I didn't, I just tightened the clamps very tight and that was 25,000 thousand miles ago.

I have been leaning towards the Flo Pro and H&S combo for some time now, I was wondering what your guys opinions are about the down pipe back or turbo back exhaust systems? I am looking for a nice, deep throaty sound but I do not want to go through with the trouble of cutting off the stock down pipe if it isn't going to net much more sound. Thanks again

I have a spartan and a 5" turbo back. I say if you are planning on ever trying to really push power out of it, turbo back, if you just want sound and performance in a budget, downpipe back is fine. I don't think you will notice much difference in sound. You will however notice a slight drop in EGTs with the turbo back. Similar to adding a CAC pipe.
