Exhausted....

Well after having the turbo out for a rebuild and new compressor wheel as well as the injectors and all the other fun stuff to replace while in that far, my truck is back together with another issue. My up pipes are leaking, go figure... anyway I have been researching them and am going with the International bellowed up pipes and after reading several how to's to do this without dropping the tranny or lifting the cab it appears I need to drop the down pipe to have better access so why not be a good time to get rid of the factory exhaust, its 12 years old, time for an upgrade. I have looked at the diamond eye and a few other SS exhaust then found the DSL on eBay. Anyone run that system? How does it sound? I don't want a droney exhaust and am not really looking for louder either, just lower EGT when towing and perhaps it will compliment my new compressor wheel and maybe eek out a little better economy. Any and all recommendations are apreciated, sound files will also help alot.

i like my diamond eye.
the install was easy took about hour and a half.
mine is straight piped so its louder, but just buy the system that comes with
the muffler and you are good. the muffler takes the out the drone as well.

oh and by the way, get rid of your k&N filter unless you would like to rebuild your turbo again.
they let too much dust through.
get the 6637 filter from napa/riffraffdiesel etc.

6637 filter? is it a drop in replacement or a cold air intake? My K&N has woked well, my olcompressor wheel looks damn near new after I degreased the oil off of it. I have heard of the K&N issues of poor fitment in the box and have run them on many other vehicles. This one has been on my truck for 140K and even whn I bore scoped my cylenders, they were all shiny and no signs of wear that yo could see with the naked eye. Please elaborate, I want another 160K trouble free.

First do you have the drop in K&N or the cold air kit? After seeing first hand for the first time ever last week i had a customer come in the shop with a K&N drop in panel filter that had the "dusting" issue. Of course the filter didnt look like it had been serviced in 50k miles it was caked with dirt and leaves. The intake tube was actually nasty with dirt! I put a paper filter back in his for the time being. My K&N cai has been on my truck since it had 35K miles( i know because i put it on for the lady that i bought the truck from) now has 121K and i service the filter every 10K miles whether it looks dirty or not and i always wipe out the inside of the tube and its always been CLEAN and the compressor wheel looks as if its brand new. I cant jump on the K&N bashing band wagon yet untill i see mine do it but after seeing my customers truck like that the panel filters have to be more of a problem than the conical filters

Too many issues being reported with the knock off dormans. They have poor castings and are made from steel. The international parts ha e great castings and the tubes are stainless steel.

I have the drop in filter. I clean mine once a year since I'm only putting 10 to 12k a year on it, will be less now that I live on my farm. It's been on there since the truck had 20k on the clock.

the 6637 has much better filtration.
and more often that not its the stock intake box to blame as well. it is known to crack/warp
my dads panel k&n filter was dirty after 3k miles of city driving lol it seems like they hold very little dust/dirt

I really like the MBRP systems, they have a nice selection and if you shop around you can find them for a good price. I ordered the MBRP model S6222409 through amazon, which is a T409 SS turbo back exhaust, 4" downpipe to 5" the rest of the way back with high flow muffler. I'm supposed to get it tomorrow and should have it installed this weekend over some beers. They claim +18hp and +28 ft lbs of torque.
