Stainless Exhaust

Just starting to look for Stainless Exhaust for 2000 7.3t F350 single 4WD. I want 4" turbo back with a muffler. I don't really want it to be much louder than factory. What's out there and who are good sources. I'd like to know what my options are before the 2/14. There will be some vendors at the Farm Equip. Show in Louisville who usually have good prices.

I have the MBRP 4" Turbo-back w/muffler (no cat - have underhood decal stating it didn't come with one). The muffler has baffle openings inside. You can turn the openings toward the engine (supposedly a little quieter - didn't try it that way) or toward the exhaust tip (I installed it that way). Doesn't seem like it is THAT much louder than stock.

Thanks, MBRP's are pretty much everywhere. I was under my truck the other day and saw evidence of exhaust leak along the seams of the muffler. I've been wanting a stainless sys for a while now.

i got a magnaflow system and I love it, not loud at all, can't really tell with the windows up. Fit was excellent and was a breeze to install. When in tunnels or under bridges I can here it with the widow down, sounds real good.

Larsj53 - what are the differences ( if you know) in the quality or performance at the different price levels? From the ads I think I would go with the XL. Thanks
Turbo-Back 4" PRO Series Exhaust - $408.44 no tip
Turbo-Back 4" XL Series Exhaust -$599.21
Turbo-Back 4" Magnaflow Series Exhaust -$831.92

Iirc the difference is the cheapest is aluminized steel, the middle price is stainless without the 5" mirror finish polished tip, and the expensive one includes the tip. I am a not 100% positive though, i am on my phone at work and cant look it up at the moment, but that is what i remember from when i bought mine, the three different prices. I bought the $500 kit and found their $269 polished tip on amazon for 75 bucks and had it tacked on. Hope this helps.

Lars

Remember that the 409 stainless systems aren't rust-proof like the 304 systems. They won't fall apart, but will get surface rust, if that matters to you.
