stacks or no stacks???

Well its almost time to do an exhaust upgrade on the 7.3, but not sure what i want to do, stacks or a single 4in turbo back. if i do stacks they would be 4 in turbo back to stacks. just wondering if there are any benefits to either one. i know that stacks would probably louder (which i have no problem with loud) but for performance wise, which would all you guys perfer?

The performance gains of both are comparable so it is purely whether you want stacks or a rear exit exhaust.

I've heard over time the drone from the stacks being right behind your head gets pretty annoying

I never noticed the 6" stacks on my 6.0 as being too loud, but I had a quad cab so maybe that helped? I could carry on a conversation in the cab just fine at highway speeds...it was when I got on it that you couldnt hear anything.

If you plan on using your bed frequently the y-pipe might be an annoyance, but I worked around mine easily enough.

IMO, stacks on pickup trucks are just silly looking.

My stock exhaust is straight piped now and i plan on getting stacks soon, you're sayin' stacks are quieter? Cause my exhaust right now aint really that loud. Only when i hammer it with the windows down.

Stack is louder (single that is) and lower egt's than rear exit. Not to noisey when the windows are up or te front ones are down but open the rear slider she will scream and cant hear much of anything, but i love it!

I vote no. Mainly because if you use your truck like a truck you'll set you load on fire! Race/show trucks....OK. Or trucks that pull trailers!
