Default MBRP exhaust questions

i tried searching for this but i couldnt really find an aswer. I was looking to get the mbrp set up for my 06 3500. i want to go with this because its on the cheaper side. i was just wondering if anyone has this and if they like it. i am looking for a little louder than stock. louder turbo and some better mpgs. would turbo back or cat back be better? and should i go 5 inch or is 4 inch better? thanks for your time

I have a friend with a MBRP 4" straight pipe on his truck and another buddy with Magnaflow 4" straight pipe to dual tips. Alot of difference price wise but they sound almost identical. With the MBRP your going to get what you pay for. The aluminized exhaust is probably going to only last 2-3 years while the SS usually last 4-6, depending on you driving conditions of course, here in PA salts really gets to aluminized ehxaust.
I didnt look at what year your truck is but if its 03 or newer it already has a factory 4" exhaust. My recomendation would be a 4" cat-back. I'm not a fan of the sound of 5" exhaust and its not necessary unless your pushing over 500 hp.
Another option you need to consider is straight pipe vs. muffler. Straight pipe will be louder but you might have a drone.

Cobb diesel has silverline aluminized single exhaust for $280 with free shipping. Its only ten bucks over XDP but thats alot for a college kid haha
If you havent completly thrownout the MBRP, farmboy diesel has the 4" catback for $265 with shipping
If your exhaust is in good condition you could just straight pipe it like I did and cut out the muffler out and put some flex pipe and a hanger in haha
What school do you go to? I'm at PSU main

No problem, any aluminized exhaust is going to be pretty much the same

I went to a branch campus near pittsburgh for my first 2 years but I had to transfer for the rest of my engineering classes. I wish I could have stayed haha

will a turbo-back be better than a cat-back? how much do u think a whole new 4 inch straight pipe would cost from a muffler shop or something.

Your truck already has a 4" turbo back. A cat back systems just going to get rid of your cat and give you a "performance" muffler or a muffler delete which ever you choose.
Getting rid of the cat and muffler reduces backpressure after the turbo since the turbo gives your motor all the back pressure it needs. By opening up the exhaust you'll lower your exhaust gas temperatures(EGT) and help you fuel mileage a little bit
Not sure how much it would be from a muffler shop but I'd have to think it would be pretty pricey.
