Exhaust

I was wondering if I could get some opinions on what exhaust to put on my truck. I was looking at maybe a Magnaflow 4" but not real sure as this mod stuff is pretty new to me. My truck is a 2001 PSD 7.3L CC, cold air intake and TS chip(soon).

Thanks!

I have read alot on this and for the 7.3, the 4" straight pipe seems popular with alot of people. If you want a muffler, use 4" with a Magnaflo or equivelant muffler.
What are you wanting to do, race it, just add power for the family RV or what?
I'm going to use 4" TB, no cat and a magnaflow muffler on my 6.0 when i get some money from momma!

Mileage

Well, I was hoping to improve the fuel mileage a bit, but also add some power when I need it. I don't really pull much except an ATV trailer a few times per year. I'll use the Valet setting most of the time, but I want to make sure I have good air flow when I do want to get on it. I'm not going to be dragging or anything, but would like to have the power when I need it.

Then i think 4" TB, no cat and muffler or not would be good.
That's kinda what I'm looking at. I will be buying a 5th wheel camper soon and pulling it some with possibly a chip or programmer but not drag racin or nothing. I think just removing the cat and muffler on a stock pipe would probably give you what your looking for for cheap!
I've alread instaled my cold air intake (Airaid filter) and now going for the exhaust and some gages.

This subject is very current for me.

In the last couple of weeks I have done both the intake and the exhaust. After alot of searching in http://www.dieseltruckresource.com/dev/index.php and alot of searching in here, I came to the conclusion that two products stood out. A.F.E. for intake, and MBRP for exhaust. In regards to the exhaust, I love the MBRP 4" TurboBack. Massive flow, and a choice exhaust "note". In regards to noise. This exhaust is not loud, which is great for "drone" issues. The MBRP's fitment is outstanding. No cutting to fit. I'm not going to do anymore mods to my P.S.D. Ex. I feel w/ the intake, exhaust, and the SuperChip setup, the truck has been tastefully, and responsibly enhanced.

Cheers

I have the magnaflow 4" turbo back, with no cat and a magnaflow muffler, it sounds great, and is not to loud. I put it on with a buddy and it didnt take long. There has been a lot of talk about exhausts lately, so search the forums and you might find out some more info on exhaust and what vendors can help get you one.

Thanks

I haven't heard much bad about the Magnaflow so I'm leaning that way.

Cool thanks for the input! I really appreciate it.
