Question Turbo and Exhaust Question

Hey guys i have a 99.5 250 7.3L. I would like to add a ATS turbo housing to eliminate surge and get that extra whistle. Im also planning on adding a 5" exhaust with muff. delete. My question is what extra things if any will i need to buy in order to make the exhaust match up to the turbo housing?
Any Help is greatly appreciated guys!

ATS housing is on the compressor side, it comes with everything needed to install. It also has nothing to do with the exhaust side. Any 4" turbo back system will work fine.

Bean does not offer a ported compressor housing other then the ATS housing, now exhaust housings are a differant deal, he has everything you could think of on that end.

what are the mods done to your truck already???

reason i ask is because a 5 inch exhaust is huge exhaust, i read on this forum somewhere that a 4 inch exhaust would be good up to like 450 hp and from that on a 5 inch would be beneficial.

yah i agree... 5" is way too much in a performance stand point... it will sound a lil deeper than the 4"

just get the housing any any 5" kit... MBRP makes a nice setup for 5" lits

There is no benifit of a 5" system at ANY power level... purely for looks and a bit differant sound.
