Dodge 6.7 Diesel 2007.5 2008

RBP’S HEAT TREATED, BLACK COATED EXHAUST SYSTEM INCLUDES 4” MANDREL-BENT STAINLESS STEEL TUBING TO FIT THE NEW 2007.5-2008 DODGE 6.7 DIESEL. THIS SYSTEM ALSO INCLUDES THE TIP. EASY TO INSTALL, FITS IN EXISTING OEM HANGERS AND IS THE BEST FITTING SYSTEM ON THE MARKET. RBP’S BLACK COATED EXHAUST SYSTEM LOWERS EXHAUST GAS TEMPERATURE, INCREASES FUEL ECONOMY, HORSEPOWER, TORQUE AND WILL NOT VOID YOUR FACTORY WARRANTY. :rof:rof:rof:rof:rof:rof:rof:rof


copied it from their website.

Is it just piping to fit inbetween the emission stuff? If it is then...wow...theres a sucker born everyday though!

It's a DPF back exhaust pipe...that's coated black...and then comes with stainless clamps...seriously, if you're going to the trouble to coat it black, why wouldn't you also coat the clamps black?

Oh, and looks like they need a spell check...they proclaimed it to be for the "2008 Dodge 6.7L Cummings"

What a joke.

Don't you guys know that black exhaust increases fuel economy?! Just like stickers increase horsepower and rear spoilers give FWD cars more traction :lol3:

What a bunch of idiots!
If anything I would think that a black pipe would hold heat right. If they painted white I would buy it!:rof

Not really anything funny about that..

The reason black paint dissipates heat more than any other color is that black is the most capably dissipative color for infra-red (heat) wavelengths. As we all know, back is very absorbent when energy rays (visible AND invisible) such as sunlight hit it. It is also able to cast off the most heat energy, all of its radiation being in the infra-red part of the energy wavelength spectrum. Single colors tend to focus their ability to both absorb AND dissipate in the wavelength of their color, and far less in the infra-red compared to black. One last thing about black: It absorbs energy better than it dissipates it, which is likely why the effect of black dissipating heat is less known. Also, since it absorbs far better than it dissipates (as do all colors), it has a net gain, for example when your black car sits in the sun, until an equilibrium is reached depending on the heated body's ability to be cooled (like with a fender or hood, by the surrounding air). The ambient temperature of the air around the black fender keeps it from heating beyond a certain range. I hope this helps explain the "I don't know why" of black paint being a better cooler for engines. The effect won't be much, and might not even be noticeable unless closely monitored, but it is a fact.

Black radiates heat in the infra-red spectrum better than other colors, which tend to "specialize" by radiating less efficiently in the infra-red and more in just their color portion of the spectrum.

I understand that, but we are more making fun of the fact that with our DPF system it will do absolutely nothing. The filter back kit will only drain your wallet! I tried one and its worhtless so I ditched it all. I wish it would disapate heat a little better though my truck is black and boy it sure does get hot in the cab in the sun. But im sure you can give an explaination for that.:thumbsup

Couple things, first off, I don't think its just the piping between the emissions stuff because it includes the tip (and its $700.00). Second, I just sent them the following message under the "contact us" page;

"Regarding your exhaust system for the 2008 Dodge diesel. How does your system improve horsepower and lower egt's when it is the same size as stock? Also, the legendary engine that comes in the 2008 Dodge Ram pickups and just happens to be the best engine ever to grace the engine bay of a pickup is called a CUMMINS, not a "cummings."

I'll post a response if I get one...

Who was it that said "There's a sucker born every minute" ??? I'll bet they can throw an unbaited hook into this forum and come out with a catch every time !!:T::T::T::rof:rof:rof

I hate RBP, I have never liked anything that they offer just for the simply fact that its not even there stuff. They use PPE programmers. They just buy other peoples stuff and slap there name on it, charge more for it. They are the Ghetto Bling Stars for the 3/4 and 1 ton trucks. Who wants to buy a 10 foot sticker that says "RBP" on it to slap on your truck.

Go buy a 6.7 first so your atleast able to understand why this is so funny to us and then go ahead and buy the exhaust and tell us how it works.:rof

So i just read your post. Its not your fault that you dont understand. Like everybody else said. If you owned a 6.7 you would be laughing to.
