Exhaust

I'm looking to purchase an exhaust for my 1995 F250 manual! I'm looking for a 4inch turbo back! I need suggestions! I was looking at MBRP's 4inch. I'm looking to weld it on, I'm not looking for hand tool installation. Any suggestion/opinion helps out! Thank you!

4 in DP will be almost impossible to clear the cab. i have heard of 3.5 in some cases, but most are running a 3. I have a MBRP and like it. it has a 3 in DP. JJflash made one and welded it it was out of 5 in I believe. If you are welding how come you don't make your own? should be cheaper. Good luck

I called an exhaust shop about 5 minutes ago. The guy said the best he could do would be a 3inch downpipe, but he also said it would be best to just leave the stock downpipe and put a 4 inch from there. Would I still be expecting a power/torque increase? Or no?

you get the 3" DP, if you sat them next to each other side by side, you will know why we all change them out, it actually not to difficult but hand tools are required, as well as a sawzall, in my case i used an air hammer as well

sure 4 ' from the DP back is good, but get rid of the stocker. HP/TQ increase probably, but i couldn't tell you how much and it won't get your engine over the factory numbers all you are doing is getting rid of the decrease in P from the stock exhaust. replacing the DP will help with EGTs though

It's probably best for the exhaust guy ,He don't have to cut it out .
To me, the down pipe is the first thing ,opens it up ,more air in and out concept .
