Diamond eye or flo pro?

With all the recent news with H&S I decided to go ahead and pull the trigger on a 5" exhaust system and tuner and I need some info on which system to get.

1) Is there much of a difference between a turbo back or a downpipe back kit?
Can the stock downpipe be taken out without cutting?

2) Any problems with either kit? Fitment issues? Looking for a hassle free install.

3) The Flo-pro seems to be quite a bit more than the Diamond Eye, is it really worth it?


Thanks to anyone who offers up some info!!

Much difference in driving/seat of the pants, no.....but EGT's there is a slight difference

Can the stock downpipe be taken out without cutting?

If the cab is lifted

Both are quality kits, never heard of many problem with flo-pro

I accidentally ordered the aluminized steel delete pipe from Diamond Eye. It is a quality piece (I had thought I only wanted a SS pipe). Now, it's not a big deal.

When I order a full 5" exhaust though, I'll probably get a SS system because it's only a few dollars more.

Stainless steel or aluminum is all about preference and looks, nothing to be gained with performance
