Banks or Diamond Eye Turbo Down Pipe

I am going to be adding the 3" turbo down pipe replacement to my F350 PSD. I am not sure which is the best brand of choice, Banks, Diamond Eye or MBRP.

Would appreciate any experienced suggestions before I make the purchase.

Thanks

I can't speak for other brands, but I have installed two Diamond Eye systems and the downpipes go in pretty easily.

There both gunna do the same thing... Banks is just a over priced diamond eye or any other brand exhaust.

Great feed back. Thanks. It looks like I am going to go with Diamond eye.

By the way, what is the deal with the Bank's stuff. As someone mentioned it is expensive. I wonder if they are trying to recover/amortize their non-recurring engineering investment over too short of a period. Looks they they have nice stuff, but there appears to be no significant technology/value discrimination for the noncompetitive price. I have called them a couple of times for price and no one calls me back. Cannot even get a printed catalog from them. Called three times requesting one.

Thoughts anyone.
