i had a bully dog system on my OBS and it sounded bada$$. unlike most the other systems ive heard that hav that clapping sound int he exhaust, mine didnt hav that. jus sounded liek a throaty 7.3. if ur looking for the 6.0 style turbo whistle at idle ur not going to find it in an exhaust system for the 7.3. mine had a hell of whistle when u reved it to 1500 in neutral tho.

mine was a 3" downpipe, 4" exhaust and i bought a 5" tip for it. the 4" DP is a pain to make fit (even mor so thn the 3") and really dont need it unlessur pushing some serious hp.

If you want a lot of whistle you should look into getting a new intake and just get a cheap 4" straight pipe exhaust.

Well the 4" down pipe will be nearly impossible to squeeze in unless you have a body lift. the 3" is already a tight fit once you bend over the pinch weld on the firewall.

5" is legit but its overkill you can get the same thing in 4" for cheaper.

If you've got money go 5" though, its a nice sound
