Exhaust recomendations

I am a new diesel owner now. Just bought a new to me 2008 f250 6.4 crew cab short bed.

I have read a bunch of stuff on exhaust but haven't come out with a clear answer i guess.

I am planning on doing Intake, exhaust, tuner. for now.

What is the best exhaust to get?

1) Brand?

2) Length?

3) Diameter?

4) muffler?

5) Anything else I might have missed?

Thanks Looking forward to this site.

1. MBRP
2. CCSB length
3. 4" is fine, 5"is just for looks and deeper sound
4. Do you want it loud, or not quite as loud?
5. Tuner before exhaust

Diamond eye, flo pro, mbrp are all name brands that fit just fine. They all come with enough piping for a crew cab long bed and when you install you just use the pieces to fit yours and you will have some pieces left if you don't have the longest wheel base truck.

I had a 5 in flo pro straight on my truck and it fit great and sounded good. It wasn't loud at all.

1) Ok so what is the difference between 4 vs 5"? Torque? hp? sound? mpg?

2) I don't want my truck to be super loud and obnoxious. Just a nice diesel turbo tone that is really noticeable. Should I do straight pipe? or muffler?


ok that makes sense. you just piece together the parts you need weather long bed or short bed

3) So If I don't go with a great name brand is that bad? Im in south florida with no salty roads.


thanks again

I did a 5" straight pipe FloPro. In Florida you can get away with aluminized. So cheaping out wont hurt you. My suggestion for 5" vs 4" and muffler vs not is YouTube a bunch and find what you like. I think the 4" is too whistley but that's my taste and why I did 5".
