HELP what should I do with my exhaust....

I have 2005 PSD 6.0 and want to change my exhaust. I was thinking about a stright pipe... Do I need to spend 300 bucks on one or will doing a cat and muffler delete pipe do the same. I was thinking if it is to loaud and my wife go nutts, I will put a Aero muffler on to make her happy....

I know the 2003 stight pipe has a crazy trubo sound will the 2005 be the same. Please let me know what you think will work the best I only want to do this one time and not have to make a lot of changes thanks be safe.

depends what you want do with the truck. If you go with a 4in it will lower your egts 200-300degrees. If you are wanting just noise get a cat and muffler delete. It shouldnt be to loud with a 2005.

Just deleting things and keeping the same diameter piping is not as good as upgrading to 4" or larger. You will see a slight HP gain, sure, but not like you would with bigger piping. My 05 has 4" turbo back, no muffler, no cat, and it sounds like a damn jet. It's pretty cool.

rem1981 i want the damn jet sound and the lower EGT. I do a lot of towing in the summer and it get about a 100 or so in new mexico. Did you go with MBRP or what did you pick. I have not seen many clips of the sounds of the 05 with a stright pipe you should post one...please i want to fly away lol thanks for the info. I did not know changing to a 4 inch turbo back made that much of a difference.

I have a Magnaflow 4" turbo back. It's awesome. Nicely made. My truck should be out of the shop today. I will try to post a clip.

The later model 6.0's don't scream like the 03's but they still sound awesome when their straight piped, and they still have a good jet sound just not quite as high pitched as the earlier ones. 4" Turbo back!

Spring for a 4" or 5". You won't be disappointed. I just had my Flo Pro put on last weekend and I couldn't be happier.

I think i am going for the sright pipe that seems to be the best choice from the replys I have seen. Does brand really matter this is a mix of brand names. MBRP,Banks, MagnaFlow etc... Is one better then the other
