Aero Turbine Muffler Opinions

Hello Everyone,

New here and fairly new to the Powerstroke. I'm looking to upgrade my exhaust system with either a turbo back 4in system or 5in system. I was told I can loose some horsepower going all the way up to the 5in over the 4in, any truth in that? That was if I didn't get a chip running, they claimed the 5in would open the system up too much.

Also, has anyone used or have any opinions on the Aero Turbine mufflers? I haven't found a piping system to go with the muffler and it would seem that I'd have to buy something like the MBRP, remove the muffler and weld the Aero in it's place.

Anyway, thanks!

I cna't say for sure but I have ben told the 5" is overkill for most 7.3's but won't hurt power. I guess it's just more for the sound and the look.

I can say that a 4" is plenty enough for a good running 7.3 and you don't need a muffler. If anything a glasspack is plenty enough muffling.

You dont need a 5" but its not going to hurt anything. As far as the muffler goes I have heard nothing bad about it but in my opinion a strait piped truck is just to Sexy.

diesels dont lose power w/ bigger exhaust. They need to lose all the backpressure they can.

I ran an aero muffler for two weeks to get my truck to pass. It wasn't the turbine but it was so bad I will never look at a aero muffler again. Truck ran hot and sounded like a hybrid.

Again not the Turbine but the name aero makes me mad because it wasn't a cheap muffler... Straight pipe is the way to go IMO.
