what muffler should I go with?

I have a 1992 ford f250 with a 7.3L turbo diesel engine. I was wondering what muffler I should get for it. I want something that sounds good, should I just straight pipe it? Im not sure...

turbo 7.3 or non-turbo?

I need to replace the exhaust on my step van with non turbo 7.3L and havent decided what muffler to go with. pipes will have to be custom.
I need torque in the truck more than HP. I dont know if going with dual setup will kill the TQ?

I had my '76 straight piped before I put a turbo on it, it sounded kinda like a gasser but it deffinately ran better with no muffler.

my straight piped 7.3 is quieter then my 6.0 PSD with a MBRP O/R set up, plus its very cheap to do

Straight Pipe the truck.... if the cab drone gets too much for your liking get a resonator to tame it down a bit
