exhaust info needed

I am new to the diesel world. I just bought a 2002 F350 long bed 4x4 and want to up grade it. It only has 52000 miles. I am looking around for an air intake system and a turbo back exhaust. I have seen some exhausts on ebay but dont know which are better. Should I go with a 4" or a 5" exhaust? I want to run a muffler to lower the noise. I am not going to be racing but I will be hauling a gooseneck trailer with 2 jeeps and camping gear on long trips to go offroad. I want better mileage and power. any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

There is no gain from 4 to 5 inch systems, the 5" are a bit louder and thats it... A 4" turbo back will give you all the gains you can expect. There all about the same sound wise so go with the one that fits your pocket book!

Gauges... DieselManor - Taking the Mystery out of Diesel Performance™ should be able to set you up with a 3 gauge set for about $300...

How much do you want to spend?

I want to get the exhaust temp and boost gauge in an A pillar pod. Should the exhaust temp be before or after the turbo?

Exhaust temp before the turbo. Try a RBP turbo back exhaust and an edge plug and play programmer if your a cruiser. I think its the evolution.
