Question about stacks? (Exhaust)

I understand many of you dont like stacks, oh well.

Im looking to get a single, black, offset from the center, closer to the driver side, angle tipped stack. somewhat big, maybe 6ish inches!

I looked around online, and im confused as heck, I looked on other posts and they really didnt do much to help.

im coming from a stock exhaust system on an 04 f250 6.0 cclb

are there any downsides except noise?

are there brands i need to stay away from? and some i need to look at?

any help would greatly be appreciated guys!

Re: Question about stacks? (Exhaust)

I have dual 6 inch miter cuts that are 36 inches just enough to barely be seen from the front of the truck, cat delete and muffler delete. The sound is not obnoxious sounds more like a nicely exhausted 5.0 stang when the skinny pedal goes to the floor but lets out just enough turbo whistle around town and cruising. The kit from grand rock was straight forward and simple. only took me about 45 minutes to a hour to put it all on. get yourself a good 5 inch hole saw for the bed super clean cut and be sure to measure everything before the cutting starts, best of luck man.

Re: Question about stacks? (Exhaust)

im not a fan of the stacks, but we have installed quite a few sets...silverline makes a decent kit, and i like there black stacks, they are almost a black chrome so its a very sharp look

completley stock truck...just a simple cat back system....and maybe a few other odds and ends

Re: Question about stacks? (Exhaust)

If you want a sweet setup that looks awesome but comes with a higher price tag check out fte diesel. They make kits that go to 3.5, 4, or 5" exhaust. 3.5" being stock size if I remember correctly. Check out there website.
It may help if ya know the name of what stack ya want. Miter is the angle cut stack 45 degree, turnout, bull hauler, Aussie, cat style, flat cut just to name a few

Honestly, I've never bought a stack kit. I've made any one I've ever done out of old semi stacks. Depending on what kind of black you want, believe it or not I've had great luck lightly scuffing the stack and painting it with cheap matte black rattle can paint.

There's no downside if you don't mind losing bed space, hacking a hole in the bed and hurting resale value, exhaust drone, etc.

I'm not a fan of stacks.

Re: Question about stacks? (Exhaust)

I'm not a fan of them to be honest but the only downsides I saw was when my truck was red, even stock tuned I had exhaust soot all over the truck after rain and not capping the in Virginia you only know it's going to rain about 10 minutes in advance lol, and the exhaust drone, which wasn't horrible to be honest, and after removal the hole is pretty hard to fix, but I've found finding a junk bed in a junkyard and getting a patch panel is the best route to fix that issue. best of luck with your adventure, hope you like it.
