i was wondering what would be the best most affordable and productive exhaust to get for my 2000 psd... any thoughts comments let me know thinking about changing what i got right now it is piped in front of the tire with a 5 in tip
If you live up North or where they salt the roads you want a SS system. But to be honest the restriction in the factory system isn't the size of the plumbing it is in the muffler they selected. They took a 3.5" exhaust and necked it down to 2.5" to put it through a offset muffler which caused further restriction. Backpressure is good in a gasser but not in a diesel. I would just replace it with a straight shot 3.5" Walker BTM muffler, these can be had at Napa for $40. I would also change your plumbing to exit behind the rear tire.
We have a very nice system for less than $260 shipped to your door. It is a very nice, high quality kit, made by Diamond Eye. We also have some new Performance Series kits by MBRP that are very nice for the money. Here are a few links:
