Re: MBRP or Magnaflow which do you like

That's a tough choice, honestly I think it would come down to price, which I think MBRP would win.

I went with magnaflow mainly because MBRP didn't offer stainless on their 5" kits. The fit n finish is great on my magnaflow though, and it came with all the parts to use the cat, or to delete it. When driving normal it is not too loud, but gets loud when you want it, nice and deep tone.

I don't think you would go wrong with either kit, only thing to look at I suppose other than price would be how the tailpipe exists.

Re: MBRP or Magnaflow which do you like

I have a 20003 EX with a 6.0 and was wondering if a true 4" down pipe would fit and does it really flow any better than a 3.5" ? Has anyone gone the route of a 3.5" down pipe, cat delete and no muffler with factory pipe (is the factory pipe 3.5"?) ? How did it flow (egt's?) ? How did it sound? Thanks in advance.

Re: MBRP or Magnaflow which do you like

I like the MBRP, but do a turbo back, like I have said before, if you do cat back, you may as well save your money and not do an exhaust, the cat is the biggest restriction of the exhaust system.

Abrannan19,
My tailpipe and muffler are rusty from 1st owner. I don't
want to mess with the down pipe. That is reason for
asking on cat back only.

Re: MBRP or Magnaflow which do you like

I had a 5in turbo back Magnaflow on my cummins and it was a nice exhaust. It was the top of the line magnaflow, but I bought it used off a buddy for $500. They are expensive. My next exhaust for my F250 will be MBRP cool duals. I think they are both BA systems, just comes down to price

Yup, I made the "mistake" of for the first few months after I got mine all installed of keeping the cat on it. It made a slight difference going from a stock exhaust to a 4" downpipe and then 5" pipe from the cat back. However taking out the cat of that system was a Night and Day difference.
