if it has sharp bends then I would redo it. My suggestion is to go with 4" from the turbo back. I have 4" from the turbo back, all strait pipe and a 5" tip. I love the sound of it!

2011 F-250 6.7L FX4 Lariat CCSB Tuxedo Black, Black Leather, 6" Lift w/ 37" Nitto trail grapplers 20" XD rims.

Everyone has a garett turbo... redo it the right way...

And you drive a 7.3, if you want to hear alot of the stock turbo, do intake..

when I did mine the turbo didn't get a lot louder just a little but I think I still have the cat . now it is time to get rid of that.

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...

depends on what material you want it out of, there is a big price difference between aluminum and stainless steel
