On a stock engine, a stock exhaust with a straight through muffler or no muffler works fine. Kind of depends on your preference as to sound. Each exhaust system sounds a bit different. I prefer stacks myself.

'93 W350 CC, LE, 5spd, HTT modded H1C, 4" DE

Sold- '99 3500 Q/C, SO CTD, 4x4, 5spd.

Traded off- '97 3500 C/C, 4x4, CTD

'92 W250, LE, CC, CTD w/ tweaked pump (SOLD)

I didn't want to drop the 700 bucks on stacks so I just ordered 4" straight pipe with 5" tip. xtremediesel shipped it to my door for 302$. As said before all depends on the sound you want, just go on youtube and do a search, that will help you out a lot

i personly like stacks, but a good streat pipe sounds really deep with a 4" down pipe and 5.5" all the way back. stacks same thing but with 6" tips about 4" above the cab so it reduces inside cab noise but it still sounds great. its basicly your choise!
