I am trying to decide what route to go on my exhaust...
1. Muffler delete to 5 inch tip.
2. Full 4 inch TB to 5 inch tip
I am more concerned with cost effectiveness to performance. For less then 100 bucks i can do the muffler delete and get a new tip. Is it really worth 300-350 bucks for a full exhaust system? Am I really going to get that much better performance for the extra 200-250 bucks?

:The first thing I would do is upgrade your lift pump...FASS - AirDog to save your injection pump As far as the exhaust imo..I noticed that my egt's run approx 75-100 cooler and the stock system was so restrictive the truck actually feels smoother with the system in my sig..
I think I paid 399.00 for the system...dunno if it was worth the xcash for turbo back ( thats the only system I have ever purchased...but I know the 4" coming out of the turbo has to be better than the smaller diameter I pulled off ( I think it was 3" maybe ) as far as the motor breathing better and of course it supports other performance upgrades...kind of like laying a good foundation
if i were you i would do a turbo back also stacks are awesome either dual or single sound amazing too

get a budget turbo back like FBD's kit...exhaust is a supporting mod (as in you wont be thrown back against the seat because of all your newfound power)...not like that, it will lower egts and help you breath better,,,do it once and never worry about it again...as far as your statement of price vs. benefit, dont even consider stacks if that is your thing...the only benefit of a stack is a huge headache and strange looks from people...only reason ill be running a stack is cause some places require the exhaust to exit upwards...
yeah, gus does sell them...stack kits are very expensive (like $500+) in my case, i got a used tunout, got a blemished reducer, and will use exisitng pieces of my exhuast to put it together...all said and done, $150 total...
if your truck already has a 4"exhaust id say just do the muffler delete, after looking at your signature definitely go 4' min. and add a cai. those are the first two things Id recommend before doing anything except for maybe lift pump and gauges
my friend got a good deal from Gus on a single 5 inch TBE and got a 6 inch tip to go with it
