MBRP vs Diamond Eye

Sorry to keep posting on here but just trying to figure stuff out. It seems that MBRP is a great exhaust from what I have read on here and from talking to people around town. But I noticed that Diamond Eye is quite a bit less than MBRP. Diamond Eye's stainless 4" kit is the same price as MBRP's aluminized kit. Is this a case of "You get what you pay for" or is MBRP just over priced. I don't want to break the bank on an exhaust system but I also don't want to worry about it rusting out in a few years. I live in Nebraska and they use a lot of salt on the roads in winter here when it snow and is icy. Thanks for the help with all my questions.
Chris

I would get the DiamondEye Stainless Kit. With MBRP you are paying for for the name than anything. Both companies make great products, your just going to pay more for the MBRP name

I have the Diamond Eye 5" TB on my 6.0, and I don't mind it. I have had a couple issues with the fitment but I believe that could have been my fault when installing it. Mine exits at a 90, and wanted a 45 so I wished i shopped around more and looked at exits more before I ordered it. That's a matter of opinion though.

Diamond Eye was the cheapest option at the time and I figured exhaust was exhaust and the brand didn't matter. I do believe MBRP is a little over priced but their kit is nice and I do believe you get what you pay for. I only have the aluminized kit on mine and I live in New England so we will see what kind of damage the salt and whatever else they use on the roads will do to it this winter.

So I think that stainless would be a good way to go, if you can justify the extra cost of the MBRP then by all means go for it. If you're like me and believe that exhaust is exhaust then get the Diamond Eye.

I went with the Diamond Eye for a good price back when I bought it. I coated it with high temp black paint.

MBRP vs Diamond Eye

Is anybody aware of a source for an exhaust system with a passenger side exit? I have a 2001 F450 with a custom bed that has the exhaust exiting out the side in front of the tires instead of behind the rear axle. I want to install a larger diameter exhaust for more flow, but so far I've only found kits that exit behind the axle.
