What is your preferred brand(s) of intake and exhaust for your diesel?

intake - Google napa 6637

Exhaust - MBRP without a muffler (It's usually the cheapest turbo back kit)

I checked out the Napa 6637, are you running that with the stock box, is it modified or are you going just filter?

clamp on 6637 with hose clamp after removing air box portion, it will just be hanging out there.
remove the cat(depending where you live) and muffler, the turbo keeps the exhaust quiet until you stand on it but stock its loud when you stand on it anyways.

it's a huge filter, it won't fit in the stock box. You have to completely remove the stock box.

I went with a S&B intake on my old 6.0 F-250...good quality, and a lot cheaper than some of the other big name intakes. As for exhaust, can't beat MBRP IMO.

I got my exhaust from farmboys diesel. 5in turbo back, no muffler, think it was like $360 shipped. 3 years on the truck and barely a touch of rust.

Cummins guys do the same thing. I have dynomax piping on my truck, 4in from turbo all the way back with no muffler. I cant even tell the difference in the cab from stock. Mine is a cummins by the way. Pm frdtrckmnrich on here to get a price on a nice kit. His pricing cant be beat.

I have 5" all the way out the back with a muffler, I'm told to just remove the muffler as it will run better and not get any louder.

When i was talking to Mike Hallas about putting my stacks on he told me the stock downpipe on my 6.0 flowed plenty for what i have done to it. Just looking @ the my 7.3 downpipe, it looks like it should be replaced/ enlarged.

I went from end of downpipe to 5" up outta the bed (no muffler, no cat). I bought most of it from a guy on CL for cheap.

I understand the opening of the turbo is only 4", am I correct? If so, why go with any thing larger, say 5" for exhaust?

really you will not gain any performance running 5" compared to 4" its just about the sound unless you are planning a lot more upgrades. My 4" with a muffler isn't loud at all and i think has a nice tone

I did a AFE Stage 2 kit on my parents 7.3L (Hey it was a Christmas gift!) and a 4in Custom exhaust from turbo back, into a Dynomax muffler. I had a little better spool up.The down pipe is the key. I know a lot of people say no muffler, but I'm not a fan and I haven't seen the data to suggest it is OK. But to each his own, if sound and a'lil more performance is your desire, it works. I'll admit that.

well it all comes together and makes perfect sense now. You want stacks on your diesel.

Get the bigger downpipe (3"?, cant remember) and 4" exhaust w/o muffler. From what i remember, you have to beat in the firewall just to get that size to fit. Exhaust made a noticeable difference on my 7.3.
I run the tymar intake setup.
