question about exhaust

I have a 01 with a 7.3 I have not done anything to it yet. I was going to start with exhaust. Will it mess with my turbo output if I install 4inch turbo back with a muffler with no other mods.

No it will not but to get full affect from the exhuast I recommend doing an aftermarket intake as well.

They like to breathe!! Lots of air in and lots of exhaust out!!! Do the exhaust and intake upgrade then you are free to add hp and torque via chips, programmers, etc without as much concern over EGT's and such. Just my worth..............enjoy the mods; you will be hooked!

An upgraded exhaust is an excellent way to start!! Getting the cool in the hot out faster is always a plus.

WELCOME TO THE SITE!

If you want to do it cheap... straight pipe your stock 3.5" exhaust and put a DIY tymar on... this all can be done for 50 bucks or less depending upon your mechanical ability.

If you do choose to buy a whole new 4" exhaust, check our vendors they have great deals.

I'd go 4" turbo back. I did it on mine (straight pipe to be exact) and I love it. I agree about the upgraded air intake as well.
