Question Best Exhaust

I know I'm opening a can of worms on this, not to mention that this stuff is spread throughout this vast forum of knowledge. I recently bought my 7.3 and this is my first dabble in life without spark plugs. Most of what I thought was true has turned out to be anything but (i.e. I thought Banks made good stuff for PSD's). Instead of trial and error I am posing the question to the infinite years and miles of experience out there:

What is the best exhaust for my truck?

My signature pretty much describes it all, but let me quantify what I'm looking for. I plan on owning this truck for at least the next 15-20 years so I'm leaning towards T-304 Stainless since it won't rust and will have a lifetime warranty. Also I'm not looking to drag, pull, tug-o-war or in any way use this for anything competetive. I will, however, eventually be towing a travel trailer or 5er within the next few years (somewhere around GVWR of 12K). I'm not looking for maximum gains or some crazy routing (just single out, no duals or stacks), just good quality, lower egt's and a nice exhaust note to let people know it's a moose, but not wake up the neighborhood. Sometime in the future I will get an intake, gages and possibly a chip (I read good things about SCT and DP). Other than that my mods will be for improvement in reliability and durability (i.e. fuel system to get rid of the air).

I'm leaning towards a 4" turbo-back (no cat) with a muffler. I like what I've read about MBRP but don't know for sure if they are the best choice or if I'm exposing my ignorance.

I humbly pose this question to all you gurus and SOTP dyno's. Thanks for any input.

4"

Sounds like you are on the right track. Stay with a 4" for sure. You might try to listen to some of the different exhausts out there to find the sound you like. Some just don't sound that great or may just drive you nuts with the reverb. Good luck and have fun with it.

Yep I agree lots of good exhaust systems out there and MBRP is one of the good ones. Check with the vendors here they will hook you up with what you need and want. I have a silverline and its just like the MBRP as far as Im concerned

Countless trucks running around even on this forum with the FBD Budget kit on and loving it. Easy on the wallet too.
