what exhaust brand to choose?

I am going to go with a 4in turbo back single pipe. So what is the best brand to go with? I was going to go with magnaflow but then i found out the kit i was going to get was a 3.5in downpipe into a 4in. they went on about how a 4 will let the turbo "sing" but then they said the 3.5 downpipe would allow back pressure to allow the turbo to "sing" at low rpm. What are some recommendations? I don't want it super loud but i want it to sound better than the stock one.

2002 f-250 7.3 ex cab automatic, 4'' turbo back magnaflow exhaust. tonneau cover. SOLD
2011 f-250 6.7 Lariat fx4 with lots of extras!!Sold
2011 Screw Ecoboost 4x4 with ALL the options

i went with a brand called heartthrob from jc whitney. it is alumanized and it has been on for four years and no rust and they salt the heck out of the roads in illinois. installation was a snap. my buddy has a lift in his shop and the two of us had the old off and new on in a little over an hour. the fit was perfect.

Why do you think you need a 4" down pipe?

in 99% of the driving you do the 3.5 will net better performance.
