best 5 inch exhaust

Who has the best fitment exhaust kit thinking either diamond eye or mbrp thoughts? I can get DE the cheapest but is there any hassles during installation?

I have 5 inch MBRP and i had some problems with the down pipe rubbing the firewall I called MBRP about it and they said its a common problem with 6 speed powerstrokes so might want to go with the dimond eye. Other than that the exhaust sounds good and fits good

Mine is a diamond eye, no problem with the firewall, but it does rest on the transmission a bit. It's been on there for 100k+, no issues besides the rubbing a bit. It hasn't caused any damage where it's touching the transmission either.

I've installed dozens of each exhaust at work with mixed results. The mbrp fits better most of the time, with a bit of marking and clearancing on the downpipe you can eliminate all of the clearance issues on both systems against the transmission and firewall.

farm boy diesel isn't around anymore.. but that would have been my choice. Diamond eye or mbrp are great too.

The Diamond Eye kits fit OK, not the best but there a great kit. For very easy install Id stick with the MBRP kit!

Go to Rollin Smoke Diesel. I got my 5" straight pipe from there. I only paid 275. No taxes and free shipping. It comes with a 2 piece down pipe and it makes it sooo easy to install. Its the cheapest price I found and with the 2 piece down pipe it was a total winner. Go check em out. Rollin' Smoke Diesel - Diesel Perfomance Parts

My 5" DE exhaust had a two piece down pipe as well. Mine when together great. It does rattle a little on the shackle bolt though. Sounds great even ended up with extra parts.

I would suggest getting band clamps though. They are much better than the ubolt style that crushes the pipe making it impossible to adjust after you crank down on them.

I just went and checked Rollin Smoke and it looks like they don't carry the 5" anymore. Sorry about that. But anything with a 2 piece down pipe is the way to go. makes everything soo much easier
