Ive always like the MBRP and Flo Pro kits. Not a big fan of Diamond Eye

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
Check this out... and research before buying

I went with the Diamond Eye. The kit is very easy to install. Pipe seems to be heavy walled enought that I doubt Ill ever replace it. The sound is great. Id go with the same set up agin if I had to.

This is just my opinion, but the MBRP exhaust is a better fit. I've ran 3 MBRP exhaust systems on my past trucks - and I've seen/helped install several other exhaust systems as well. The Diamond Eye kits do not fit as well as the MBRP ones from every install I've seen and I've heard this from several members of my truck club that have the Diamond Eye exhaust as well. However, both perform and function the same. I'm partial to the MBRP exhaust tone, however the Diamond Eye kits aren't much different.

Fit and install on my diamond eye went smooth with no problems and as long as its a straight pipe the sound wont change at all compared to an mbrp

I like my diamond eye, was cheaper than MBRP off of amazon. I went with a straight pipe I figured pipe was pipe at the time. I think it sounds great, and install was a breeze.

I went with diamond eye, however I had to have part of it expanded because it didn't fit properly, but my case is the only one i've heard like it.

I have used both and I have to say for the money....Diamond Eye is a great option. I had no problems with the fit and install. However, every truck is different and every batch of exhausts is diffferent. Save the cash and spend it somewhere else.
