    I like MBRP www.mbrp.com you can get them in cat back/turbo back/cool duals, aluminized or t-304/t-409 stainless..And their product fit and quality is second to none...
    Contact www.dieselperformanceparts.com they cut excellent deals
    if you go to youtube.com and type in mbrp you can hear their exhaust set ups pretty well..or type in 6.0

    Definitely go stainless. It's worth the extra money. I went with aluminized and wish I had spent the extra... The cool duals sound great...

    I have the MBRP 4" stainless turbo back, cat-delete, 6" tip on my 6.0 Powerstroke. It doesnt growl or rumble near as much as the 7.3 does but there is a ton of turbo coming out of the pipe. You will love it. Definetaly go stainless, not aluminized. I ordered from www.xtremediesel.com; they are good to work with. ;)

    I would also go stainless it will last and clean up real well!As far as the power gain goes you will have some gain, but it will benefit you because it will drop your EGT temp!!! Right now I just have a muffler delete on my truck but I will be putting an MBRP on it soon...And thank you for the compliment I posted some new pics in the photos forum of it...Post up some pics of your ride when you have a chance!

    Go to summitracing.com and order the catalog. They have a ton of stuff for trucks.
    It's a good reading in the bathroom catalog.

    im not sure if your are on a budget or not but all I did was get a Walker straight through replacement muffler from blackclouddiesel.com for around $50 shipped with the hardware needed and I love it. My truck exhaust looks totally stock (and is other than the muffler) and it sounds awesome. The turbo spool is pretty loud and you get that sweet diesel/turbo flutter. The best part is there is no drone in cab at all. Roll down the rear right window and as you pass stuff by you really hear the exhaust! Im such a nerd but seriously, if you are on a budget, its the way to go. I have a vid on my site if you want to see/hear the exhaust.

    I will also say MBRP. I have installed a couple dozen of their systems with great results. As far as stainless i am on the fence. My aluminized system has been on my 01 since December of 00 and it is as solid as the day it was installed. Unless you are running a really lifted truck no one will see any of the system except for the tailpipe. If it was me i would save the $$$, Go with aluminized and get a tuner :cool: . There is a lot that can be helped with the factory programing ESPECIALLY the transmission function.

    I too have helped install several MBRP exhaust systems on different brands of trucks and the fit was always very good. I have a MBRP muffler and I am very happy with it. I agree Stainless Steel is not worth the extra $$$, and my aluminumized 4" has been on my truck for about 5 years and there is absolutely no signs or rust. Yes I do live in the rust belt.

    Aluminum mix is OK, but I wouldn't say it not worth the money on a nice truck run every day that you plan on keeping. Had it on my old truck. It was a nice custom bent system. Great till about year 5 then it needed replacing. It rot from the inside out, so you may think it's ok but need replacing soon.

    Now on my Camaro that never sees foul weather the Aluminized pipe is great, 10 years still looks new, but thats an exception considering how it is used.

    Hey YAZ was your old truck a gasser????
    Big difference between Diesel and Gas exhaust emission content.
    Diesel is much easier on the aluminized.

    I went with stainless just because the piece of mind is worth the extra few bucks

    As long as you are happy nobody can fault you.
    Diesels do not rot out exhaust pipes from the inside out like gassers do.

    Yes it was.. I didn't know about that, maybe the soot coats and protects it as well? I heard old timers say to coat the inside of a exhaust system with oil, pouring some down the carb before changing the plugs.:dizzy:
