I cant decide what to do.... i bought the MBRP 5in turbo back straight pipe and tacked it together. My beds shot, just a matter of time before i get another. That being said, if i was to run stacks then now would need to be the time. I like to run two of the Cat stacks angled, figured i'd just move the tool box forward to accommodate the stacks. Any change expectations in performance? This is my first ford and first Diesel. Any tips are appreciated.

No performance gain or loss. Just more noise. Don't expect to hold a conversation in the cab though

Which could be beneficial if someone talks to much and you don't want to hear them Haha.

I have ran stacks on some of my rigs Over the years. I prefer however to not waste bed space.

Funny, when we were truck shopping, my boy would head toward the trucks with stacks while me and my wife would head the other way. Just sayin :)

Stacks are reminiscent of times gone by. Between the kids ruining the image and there not being any true functionality outside of truck pulls, working in the field, etc, is it worth your time and bed space? I know what I'm thinking when I see stacks on a truck anymore. This is just going to be an opinionated thread. Everyone has their own ideas. There's mine.

:ditto:

Not a fan of stacks myself. I have seen them look good on a handful of trucks, but just not for me. You will be happier with an exhaust that doesn't exit right by the cab.

I've ran both exhaust routes. No real audible changes.

I only lost 6" of bed space when I ran 1 or 2 stacks. Put the tip of the stack just above the cab. Makes it much quieter in the cab.

Exhaust is all opinionated.

can't see what yr or how many miles on it , exhaust was 1 of the last things I did, to it , I would fix all leaks first,, lol or try to, fuel, oil, water, break's, leaks these are things that will make it more reliable. i'm sure someone else will thinks of something .
