    Who gives a crap as long as it get better mileage. Do you own an 08 that gets crapy mileage. Well now that i have put 200 miles on the new system i can tell the exahust is deeper and more power.

    They all sound like OE if the DPF is still intact. Most people change it for the HP,Mileage,EGT and the looks as well as the sound.

    The only real benefits are
    1) to get rid of the factory style ugly exhuast tip
    2) to remove your stock filter back exhaust so it doesent get sooted up
    when you do the Dpf Delete ;)

    the stock system is a flow through mufller, so there isnt much difference in sound or performance.

    I got the pro series MBRP 4" single 304 stainless and I did notice a little better throttle response due to the turbos spooling a little faster than normal from less backpressure. Looks a hell of a lot better and it is quite a bit lighter than stock. I didnt notice any difference in noise. AND I am GLAD. I love the fact that these trucks are so quiet. Just My opinion...

    COME ON YOU CANT FEEL ANY HP DIFFERENCE BY CHANGING A MUFFLER,IT JUST SOUNDS DIFFERENT AND THEREFORE YOU THINK YOU FEEL MORE POWER.

    Well I have got a 1200 miles on the truck since the mods. I am seeing 1mpg better than before and that is towing 95% of the time. It should be better unloaded. Just a little info for you guys that dont want to take off the dpf.

    that "cool cuff" is the biggest load of ***** i have ever seen.....underneath the "cuff" is the exact same perforations as any other exhaust system, including the stock. besides that, those egts at the end of the pipe arent the ones you need to worry about. also when the truck is in regen you will still get million degree exhaust coming out the tip, cool cuff or solid pipe.

    I thought I was the only one to have that opinion. Funny Banks run a dmax and a cummins but doesnt bother with a powerstroke! IMO I think they put more effort into advertising than R&D..(at least for the Powerstroke folks)
    I have known a few people to be completely disgusted with their products....

    Yep, I gotta agree. I sent in for the Banks catalog when I bought my truck because they were such a well known name. I couldn't believe the prices. And this is from a guy who deals in classic cars and parts! Glad I found this site. My MBRP is half of what banks wants and the MBRP is a better product. Plus, this site led me to Spartan and lots of other better retailers as well.
