Looking to pull the trigger on a new single pipe exhaust, what is the no kidding best choice for overall performance, ease of installation , durability and best sound (without driving you out of the cab from insane resignation)? Your expert opinions would be greatly appreciated.
Im interested also, have to replace my tail pipe and donalson 51" going to keep the cat. I was looking at a MBRP cat back, but on another forum some guys were saying too much drone when towing, and I tow.

I've looked at one exhaust system so far; MBRP 5", stainless steel, turbo back...looks like it has something on it that resembles a muffler. I have heard the MBRP is quite loud, I want loud and throaty, but not re-arrange your DNA loud (inside cab at least). Maybe to get what I want, I'll have to put up with resignation?
they are all the same.....DIAMOND EYE is not expensive and with the baffled muffler it will sound fine. dont waste your money buying a magazine brand name....

Get something 4 inch dont waste your money on anything bigger since i wont make that big of a difference. I just replaced the muffler with a cheap old glasspack and ran a pipe thru the cat and it wasnt loud at all. Oh a lot of that noise will go away to if you get the end of the tailpipe out a few inches from the truck bed.
Really don't give a rat's App**

I agree that it won't make a big difference in power. But the sound between a 4 inch 5 inch is way noticeable 5 inch is wayyy better sounding also the noise in the cab isn't bad at all and the price difference isn't that far from each other.
