2003 excursion 7.3

I thought I would ask you guys what exhaust would be best for my beast. I currently have a cold air intake on it and a Hypertech programmer. I am thinking of upgrading to a Diablo, but before that, I want to put more free flowing exhaust on it.

Suggestions???

This is my daily driver and I am not drag racing it, but I do like the power and torque this thing has!!

I loook forward to all suggestions!

Thanks!

I like the straight pipe sound personally and any exhaust shop can do it for $50, or if you have a welder you can do it for $20
I would skip the diablo and get a tuned TS style chip, either TW, PHP, or other. better tunes and switch on the fly.

X2 on the TW or PHP chip as your next upgrade. As for the exhaust, i love the sound of MBRP's muffled exhaust, but any 4" will do.

On a gas engine that's true, and possibly on a NA diesel maybe, but on a turbo diesel you do not want any restriction after the turbo, if the engine needs back pressure the turbo itself creates a lot, the engine usually see at least 1.5 times the back pressure as the boost you are seeing.
