I think James at RDS has the 5" Expandit kit for just over $300, but I am sure the other vendours have soem aswell. I am running the expandit exhaust and it is great quality and fit for the price. Its is aluminized and mine still looks as good as the day I installed it and it has seen 2 Canadian winters.

The bungs are for us old school guys with no XRT. We all have to run the O2 sensors in the exhaust and some had the probes in there too but with 470Ohm resistors tapped in with them. But with the XRT it requires no O2 sensors anymore and the 3 EGT probes harness gets capped with the little sims. So you require zero bungs in the exhaust when you run the XRT.

is that price of under 300 for a turbo back 5'' system? is it straight pipe or does it have a muffler in it? (i want it straight) also do the hangers match up to the stock hanger on the 6.7's?

Yes the one for under $300 is without a muffler. I have the kit with a muffler and it was a little more than $300. All the hanger mounted with out an issues except one. It needed to be cut and rewelded back on. Not a lot of work and goes on real nice.

I think it sounds real good. Not so loud you can't talk or hear the stereo but loud enough you can still hear the truck. And yes you hear the turbo too. My fiance says it ins't too loud so that should tell ya.

I had a 5" TBE on my 02 w/ muffler and it was louder than this one is.
