Exhaust, or no exhaust... that is the question.

I've had my truck now for almost 2 months, I have almost 6,000 miles on it, and I love it. The only modifications are in the bed, (Line-X and a toolbox). I'm looking at wheels, tires, lights, gauges, and exhaust, and while it is my truck, a lot of others say "don't rice it out, leave it as it is" (referring to exhaust and gauges). I haven't seen a truck with gauges personally up close to scope out the quality look of the install afterwards, but how do they look? I'll never run a programmer on this truck, so is EGT really that crucial in stock tune? Finally, what'll I pick up with exhaust, is doing MBRP similar to, say, throwing the 'dime-a-dozen' Flowmaster 40s on a gasser? Will I actually keep EGTs down and free up some MPG with that mod?

An exhaust is ALWAYS a good thing to do to a turbo diesel-powered vehicle. It WILL lower your EGT's and in turn increase performance and help extend the life of your motor.

We sell many brands... MBRP,Magnaflow,Full Boar,Banks, & Hog exhaust... My personal pick is the MBRP.... I have had great fit and finish and seems to be the easiest installation.

If you have any questions please give me a call..

Thanks,
Jason

exhaust is prolly the first mod that should be done to a truck. not only do you get a really cool sound, egts will drop over 200 degrees, your turbo will spool faster and prolly see a little more psi out of it, and you should see a slight mpg gain. it is an absolute must if youre considering a chip, especially if you tow. theres a lot of options out there. magnaflow is gonna be your quietest, even though it doesnt run a cat. if you need a cat, look into the MBRP. if you want duals, mbrp and magnaflow both have them avaliable. if youre lookin for loud, go 4" straight pipe. ive done it on mine and will never think twice about running a muffler again. heres what mine sounds like:

well, a friend here is running 5" and its not any louder, just a different tone...

cant go wrong with either one though...

also, that clip was without a chip or anything. it is MANY times louder when running an extra 150-200hp...

What's the loudest and quietest and happiest median setups (downpipe, cats, no cats, mufflers, no muffler) for a noticeable increase in the turbo sound, but not ear piercing on the highway?

loudest is 3" downpipe to 5" no muffler no cat the quietest still with some turbo wistle would be the 3" downpipe with a 4" no cat and a muffler that will still allow for a turbo wistle but the muffler will quiet it down a little bit
