Hey guys, I have a 1997 powerstroke and could leaving just having a down pipe from my turbo cause problems later on down the road? I heard it could cause the turbo to go bad

Running a down pipe only may Kause loss of hearing, and the smell in the cab a bit

You'll be fine, run the exhaust at least out the back of the cab and do a turn out or angle it down. I ran just downpipe for a day and it was enough for me, also too smoky smelling.

I tried it too. Sounds cool but I like to hear my radio more.
