What size exhaust?

I have a 2002 Dodge 3500 Cummins with the NV5600 tranny. It has a slightly modified stock exhaust and wanting a bigger dia. pipe and also the deep noise that comes from a aftermarket exhaust. What size and tip should i get and who should i buy it from so it does not cost an arm and a leg to get.

Your comments please.

IMO it depends on whats done to ur truck. When i had my eadge juice, RV275s and an hx35 i prefered a 4inch exhaust to a 5 inch. But with the setup im running now it competely changed the tone of my truck and i just love the way it sounds with the 5 inch on it now.

As for tips i had a 5inch tip with a 4 inch exhaust but now with my 5 inch exhaust i prefer not having a tip at all. I think it looks way better without one and makes it more of a sleeper.

Sup,

I had a dual 4" kit that I threw on a couple years back in Florida. It had something like a muffler on it and then it Y'ed out. I lost the drivers side exhaust section....long story for another time.....so I just finished operating on it. I threw a straight pipe to make it just a single exhaust again, and I had forgot how good a straight pipe diesel sounds. I am running a 4" with a 5" tip.

Well diesels as most of us know aren't like gassers and they don't need back pressure to run correctly for a fact the less back pressure the better u r im going with a 5" dp to 6" to 7" bullhauler stacks straight piped. But if u don't like a loud drone get an exhaust with a muffler. But if u want a straight pipe it really doesn't matter who u get it from it will sound around the same and actaull if u want it to be cheaper go to a custom exhuast shop and they should be able to do just about any size u want, the may not be able to bend it but they can cut pie shapes out to make the exhaust curve and it will be alot cheaper than buying a manufacturers exhuast

i have a 5in duel with seven inch tips and i love it! i is so so deep! when you get on it people know your comming! i bought mine off a guy who has semi trucks and just customized to to fit but really you dont even need a bend you could go straight and just set it as high as you can! i perfer a 5 over a four but its between those two. if you really start to modify it you could go with a six and it sounds sweet but if you dont have enough mods to your truck they sound stupid.. just my input for you

I got my 4" from summitracing.com for 299 or 399 I cant remember. The one I got was aluminzed and if you pay 100$ bucks more you can get stainless. It has a glasspack style muffler
