exhaust for 1996 f250 questions

i am looking at buying an exhaust to remove the pan cake down pipe that ford put in, but was wondering if the higher priced exhausts like banks or magnaflow are better than a diamond eye or flomaster exhaust, i want something with a nice tone to it but loud when i floor it down the road, any help would be welcome

Just straight pipe Diamond eye will work. I have a 2 piece Diamond Eye downpipe I got on ebay years ago for cheap and it does just as good as anything else. All you're really doing is paying for a brand name with the big guys. As for the piping it depends on if you want it run out the back, side pipe, stacks etc. Can't beat Diamond Eye's prices in my opinion, always check Ebay too.

i found a turbo back diamond eye for 230? on thoroughbred diesel havent checked ebay though thanks for the idea, stacks won't work right now as i have a slide in camper than i am restoring, also would getting a 5" exhaust be worth it for 270 or stay with a 4" ive heard mixed reviews

5" is deeper and what I will be going with on my Dually, the 4" is quieter until your mashing the skinny but it's not a huge difference, it's personal preference until your making big power

Just do the 5" now rather than upgrade the 4" later.

Not many people end up in the power range to need a 5", but they do sound good, where is this 5" turbo back on throughbred's site for $270? I only saw a cat back system that retains the stock cat converter

Zero difference, the turbo is creating the back pressure you need, hell a full 3.5" inch exhaust wouldn't change anything but pitch
