Tough Decision.....

I have a 2000 F-250 extended cab short bed with 83,000 miles no programer or chip only aftermarket part at this point is a K&N thats it. Question is, im wanting to stright pipe my truck but dont know wich way to go... im either gonna cut the muffler off and just pice the pipe back together or my other thought was buy the 4" MBRP turbo back muffler delete. Which do yall think would be best?

Personally, I was very impressed with the difference my 4" turbo back made versus the stock exhaust... but I never straight piped it. (Not legal here.)

If money is an issue, I would just straight pipe it. If you have more plans for it, (like Gauges and a chip) I would say 4" Turbo-back would be your best bet.

And if I were you, I'd lose that K&N ASAP.

Well money isint really the issue its just $65 for just a pipe and tip or $245 for a 4" turbo back. Just wodering if the diffrence is worth the price.... Also what kind of filter do i need to replace the k&n? besides a "cold Air" intake? The truck came with the K&N. If any modifications it would be a dp tuner or just a programer.

If money is not an issue? I would replace the stock exhaust with the 4" Turbo Back... You will now be ready for future mods if so desired...

A straight piped 4" Turbo Back 7.3L sounds so dam Kewl from the outside of the truck... Now on the inside of the truck is a different story... If you a young fella and listen to loud music most of the time? I'll bet you will love the sound coming from the exhaust and turbo...

I am older and have been in the passenger seat as well as driven a 7.3L that is straight piped... Though it is really a rush for a short while... Going down the highway! It drove me crazy... It it tough to even carry on a conversation with your passenger without speaking loud... >{Not for Me}... It is a very unique sound... some say like a Jet! I love the sound! But It's not for me as a daily driver...

As for your cold air intake... There are alot of systems to chose from... Look into the 6637 DIY or the Kit for this system... Or the AIS System... But you are limited to around 400-450hp limit with this system...

K&N has not proven to be a good fit for diesel pickups... Yes they produce a good air flow..But..To get that good air flow they sacrifice filtration... There are better options out there...Turbos need a very good amount of CLEAN Air!

2 other things to think about for the OP:

1: If you go the MBRP route, their stainless has a lifetime guarantee.

2: I have the 4" Turbo back WITH muffler... it's not much of a muffler... it's pretty close to a straight pipe.

I think for the time being im just gonna go with the cheap way out. What size pipe is the stock exaust? i think im just gonna use flex pipe. Also i just ordered a 6637 Air Filter kit from Riffraff. so we will see how that mod. goes!
