I was looking for exhausts. Looked at everything narrowed it down to a turbo back Magnaflow or MBRP stainless 4 inch. I heard a few people say Magnaflow didnt line up right and rusted but nothing bad with MBRP. So I ordered the MBRP off Ebay for $519.00 received it Saturday and put it on.

All I had to do was remove the band clamp mid truck and remove a clamp holding it to the down pipe. The rear peace and muffler came out easy. The cat section I had to struggle with and move around due to the cross member. After that the MBRP went in fairly easy. I had a peace of 4inch stick and wasnt sure if I wanted to straight pipe it or install the MBRP muffler. So at first I installed the muffler loose abd started it up to listen to the sound. Then I removed the muffler and started it again. Exhaust sounded great and not unbearable. I cut the 4in stick and used some stainless band clamps to hold it together tightend all the nuts and bolts and finished.

Driving it. You can bearly tell the difference in sound till 2500rpm then has a noticable difference. It also sounds like a jet engine while at idle.

Performance. I installed the exhaust and AFE stage II. Not mutch difference pulling out then, in third gear it takes off and has alot more power. Unfortunatly after 10 miles the lil SES light came to say high so I picked up a finger stick today.

All in all. Its great! Awesome sound and a real head turner. Tip got screwed up it shipping looking forward to getting it. :cool:

I installed my 5" Magnaflow Turbo-back with no problems at all. I love it. It sounds just like stock when at idle, but when I take off everyone knows i'm comin:getrdone

I also recommend the BD Exhaust Manifold so you can get the full effect of "free-flow" exhaust. Once you get the stock out, you'll wonder why the hell they made it like that.
