Exhaust Tip?

I recently bought a MBRP 4'' inlet into a 5'' outlet exhaust tip for my 6.7L super duty. When I talked to the muffler guy that was going to weld it on, he said that the stock tip has a cooling mechanism and putting this tip on will add a lot of heat to the end of the system...he thought adding the tip might melt the paint near the fender. Anybody have any comments on this? Should I add it or not?

If you say dont add it...anybody want to buy the tip from me?

exhaust tip

i would not do it man those bent in pieces are cooling fins you can get the chrome tip just like you stock one for like a hundred bucks or you can order the chrome package for your truck for eight hundred which includes the tip mirror caps and 5 inch chrome running boards so i say do that dont take it off or buy a delete kit that will take all your emission stuff out including urea but as far as i know they are not yet available hope this helps

ummm sounds like bs to me. think about how hot ur exhaust tip is when ur running 75 down the interstate for like 1-2 hours. if that doesnt melt ur paint then i dont see how getting rid of the stock tip is gonna make that much of a heat difference.

I agree with you, but I wanted to get opinions, because my exhaust guy seemed to think the fins were an induction system. I think that y'all are both right, I think the fins/induction system is a great idea and might help a little...but I don't think changing tips would melt the paint. Hopefully you guys will continue to comment and help me out more. Thanks

p.s. why do you say not to do the DPF delete pipe once a tuner comes out? curious...

no man i was suggesting get a delete kit but they not out yet i still would just get the chrome tip they make for it cuz it is cooloing induction for that huge inboard emissions i just talked to my cousin who is a ford mechanic and he told me you can get the nice chrome tip they make or put yours on but clamp it don't weld if it has to come back for any warranty work they will see that and void your warranty so i would clamp it on so you can take it off if your truck has to go back for whatever reason

Ok, sounds good. I don't know how I would clamp it though because it's a one outlet replacing a two...I guess I could cut and clamp the new one on, then just weld it back for warranty work.

That is not released to the public yet.

with the 6.4 and 6.7 and no delete you do need either the stock or aftermarket tip with the cooling fins.

It will melt the paint otherwise.

These trucks run way hotter in regen than a 7.3 cruising down the highway guys

exactly that is why i suggested getting the chrome one keep that stock or get the approved delete kit but i pretty sure it will melt your paint and if it looks like it has been tampered with they will most likely void your warrany
