whats the difference in exhaust kits....

Alright guys, i have been running around for a couple months now with a simple muffler delete on my stock system, and am ready to step up to a 4" turbo back. but when you look at exhaust on these dealer sites a 4" turbo back system could run anywhere from $200-$700. I assumne that the price difference is basically based on the materials used. Is there anything else i should Know? I figure they all use clean bends, and good hangers. I figure other than the tip no one is gona see any of it, so whats the advantage of spending 3x the money? I dont need to be able to tell people i have MBRP exhaust to feel good if thats the only difference.

Materials i.e. SS or aluminized seems to be the only real difference as far as I could tell when I was looking at which to get. I agree, spending money simply for a name isn't my cup of tea.

If you deside on a brand let me know..some do fit better MBRP for one. Some have welded on factory hangers some just bolt on..

Me and my buddy installed the MBRP on his 06 6.0 last Friday (installer series) I was impressed, nice kit. We installed it in under and hour. I'll bet Carry could get you a good deal on one of those. The kit was turbo back also.

I have an MBRP and fit it myself with a buddy in about 20 minutes. It was a breeze and everything fit perfectly.

MBRP as well and it took me longer to pull the stock system out than to put the MBRP in. A friend of mine put a bullydog (i think) exhaust on his OBS powerstroke and it was nothing but a bloody hand cuss and swear-a-thon putting that on. It didn't fit well at all. I found the MBRP stainless 4" turbo back I bought was the "best" for the money, I want to say I paid around $500'ish to my door.

So what you guys are saying is the difference in a $200 exhaust and a $700 exhaust is basically the materials used and how wellit actually fits under the truck? whew.... well I spose that i can weld my own hangers on where they need to go to save a couple hundred bucks.....
Thanks for the replies fellas

The clamps in the kit will have the mounts welded on. The hangers will also line up with the factory mounts. The difference in price is that stainless is expensive.

thats what i had assumed, But everyone has said how easy some are to mount and that others are a pain, I just figured it was due to the hangers not being quite right. oh well i spose ill find out soon enough. again, thanks guys....

I have a diamond eye 4" and It went on very easy I got it from performance truck products, they are a sponsor here, I think it was $275 shipped. It's the budget series with. No tip and it's aluminized and not S.S. But I'm very happy with it
