Remove DPF vs Full Exhaust

I am new so I am sorry if this has been covered before. I did a search.

I am considering tuning my 6.7 with H&S. I know I'm in the minority, but I like the look of the stock exhaust tips.

Am I at any disadvantage at all by simply installing a DPF delete pipe and keeping the rest of the exhaust/muffler stock? I'd prefer to keep the exhaust tone as close to stock as possible.

What is the best option to keep the exhaust tone as stock sounding as possible. I've grown out of my loud, droning in the cab exhaust phase and want a quiet truck with all the power of a tuned truck.

Many thanks.

Rusty

I am in the same boat, and don't mind the factory tips. Although, I haven't put it on yet, I just got the delete pipe and will keep the factory exhaust. From what I understand, the only advantage to a straight pipe or aftermarket exhaust is sound. I actually like to hear myself think, so I'm fine with the stock system.

On my 6.4 I did just the delete pipe. For me it happened to be a PITA sliding the delete pipe onto the tail pipe. It kicked my ***.
On my 6.7 I went with the 5" straight MBRP.
Easy to install but much louder.
I am happy I did the full exhaust this time.

the delete pipe on a 6.7 is easy because it's flanged on the back side

and the factory resonator doesn't do a whole lot at all LOL

I like the factory tailpipe look.

I have the 4" DPF delete pipe...Easy install and the sound is perfect for my liking...Not too loud, especially when towing...

The performance is great...

I would second the sound clip request. I mainly want to get rid of that after sucking noise the waste gate makes. How much quieter are you talking? Like compared to a Donaldson muffler... I am afraid the Donaldson muffler will be to quiet. I don't care for an extremely loud exhaust but want it to sound good and get it at wide open throttle.

My previous truck was an '02 7.3 that the previous owner had put a 4" Magnaflow turbo-back exhaust on and now I have a '13 6.7 that I installed a 4" down-pipe back Flo-pro on that started without a muffler. The difference - the 6.7 makes more noise at low RPMs than the 7.3 did. Highway 26 in Portland has a decent length tunnel on a 3-4% uphill grade and when I stood on the 7.3 in the tunnel, it made quite a bit of noise. The 6.7 is quieter at WOT with a straight pipe than a slightly muffled 7.3. At idle, I noticed the exact opposite.

I added a 40" muffler because the straight pipe was too loud for me and I am pleased with the outcome. With the crew cab long box, I have room for another 40" muffler. Straight or muffled, there is less exhaust sound in the cab at 50mph than 10mph.

I encourage you to start straight and add a muffler or resonator as you see fit.
