Which Brand exhaust system is better?

I have a 01 X 7.3

I want put in a 4'' stainless but which brand is better or at least can give me better mileage.

I only know of Banks and Magnaflow, are their better systems out there

I run a magnaflow SS Turbo back. Very nice setup. But you'll get a lot of opinions. If I didn't get my magnaflow so cheap, I would have gone with something else.

When it comes to exhaust, there are so many options that it usually just comes down to how it sounds over anything else. If you are pushing 500hp or more, you will need a 5" but anything less stick with a 4" turbo-back. I am running Rolling Big Powers 4" turbo back and I love it, but I know guys with MBRP systems and banks systems too that love theirs. Talk to everyone you have locally, listen to their systems and pick the sound. As for fuel economy, they are all going to do about the same.

also you could get in touch with Farmboysdiesel on here and he has some decent prices even for SS. I have heard his system are of good quality too, and you really cant beat his prices.

I may be a bit slow at times, but I don't understand this.

Where does it say that you need a 5in exhaust for 500hp???

it is just the best option to help keep the EGT's down in a manageable range, i think. could be totally off though.

Wow so many responses in so little time thanks alot

so is the turbo back the best option for the truck?

and the actual difference is in the sound factor rather then the mileage factor right

Look into RBP or Silverline... definately do a stainless steel tho. Don't settle for aluminized... I know it is cheap... but it is cheap! =0)

yes turbo back is definitely the way to go. most systems are going to have about the same sound, maybe a few differences but i doubt that you will be able to notice, the biggest difference is going to be on whether you go with a muffler or not as far as sound goes. and my mileage actually decreased around town, because i love the sound soo much i cannot keep my foot out of it, but trying to get better about that especially with the rising fuel costs. but towing and freeway driving i have noticed an increase in fuel mileage.

So where is the best place to go for the turbo back system? Stainless or aluminum? Manufacture? Not looking to spend too much $$$$. Do you need the gauges if you do this exhaust upgrade. thx
