Exhaust?????

I want to do a exhaust upgrade. What do you recommend or have done to yours. I would like to do it cheap since I have the dreaded bad injectors.

Truck info in in my signature.

MBRP, Diamond EYE, Flo Pro, AFE. I personally shopped from DE and MBRP. DE welds their hangers to the clamps and MBRP to the pipe.

I bought a 4" straight pipe off ebay for $280 and installed myself. You don't need anymore than 4" unless you are creating some serious power.

Here's a video of my straight pipe - the mic was clipped to the rear bumper, it is nowhere near that loud in the cab

Man that does sound good. And man I love the sound of the BOV. That is a sound I miss. Want to do that too eventually.

That's just the turbo barking through the exhaust. Not a BOV.

You want cheap, the just have a muffler shop cut out the kitty and muffler on your stock exhaust. Or just straight pipe it yourself. Definitely give you a change in sound and won't be out a lot of money.

Ya was thinking about that. Doing that will be cheaper and it should still sound good. Would you keep it all stock pipe size or remove it and make it a little bigger. Not even sure what stock size is. Looks like 3.5ish
