Question What is the best exhaust? I have a straight pipe now

I was wondering what the best exhaust would be my mechanic told me i have to put a muffler on and the pipe must exit the truck. All i have now is a 3" down pipe to a 4" pipe with a turndown just past the cab. I love the way it sounds now but all good things must come to an end

well they probly dont have the same munny grubin attitudes that most companies have and some one woke up one day and thought hey I can take 20 feet of 4 inch tubing at 6 bucks a foot. = 60 dollars and run it through a machine that will put some bends in it and of coarse add in the labor of the guy running the machine, cost of the machine + wear and tear, and go hey we can sell this 100 dollar piece of pipe for 300 bucks and sell three times as many as the other guys offering the same thing for twice the price. maybe not but hey it sounds good.

Personaly most diesel exhaust sound prety much the same to me. Any powerstroke with a mufler sounds like a tweetie bird in a coffe can rolling down a rocky hill side my buddie has one on his 6 leaker and it sounded prety good. but muflers are gay so he has it straight piped now.

Id get a mufler deleat pipe and put the mufler back on it when I take it in to get it worked on and inspected.
