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!

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..

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