FOr me I would rather have less room for an exhaust leak. so I am personally going with the one piece.

97' F250 Powerstroke Isspro boost gauge, flat bed.
In the Works... Custom running boards, and front bumper. Built by me!
Soon will have a down pipe, and possibly tunes or an ECU reflash.

No problems with 2 pc DN pipes and getting a 1 pc in is not fun...I have one on the '95.
