just go to an exhaust shop and have them cut out the muffler and run a straight pipe. Cost around 50 or 70 bucks. Sounds same as stock until you lean on it then its got a nice rumble to it.

I had mine cut before I bought my exhaust. No issues just sounds a little better. That was all I changed kept my factory tip. Tip is personal prefrence i guess. Just cut out the muffler see how it sounds and if you like it. You can always pick up a tip later if you want.

i got a full magnaflow turbo back exhaust for 600 on amazon.com

for a cheaper setup you might want to look at MBRP (i think thats the brand) ive heard pretty good things about quality and fit.

cutting out the muffler on your stock setup might help sound a little and power a little but the pipe would still be a smaller circumference then an aftermarket which is what i think also cuts down on power a lot

check out powerstroke.org and they have easy mods for the 7.3 liter that you can do at home. people there are very helpful

yea if you have the money to spend a turbo back system is the way to go. I was just giving you a cheap way out. You dont need to go any bigger then 4" though. Also get a programmer that you can custom tune if you buy one. You can do way more with it, get a lot more out of it for your money.

i gave a buddy 20$ bucks to give me hand. it was VERY EASY!!!! all you need is a wrench. everything fits right in place with the stock exhaust hangers. all you do is put it in place and tighten the clamps. and then once you drive 50-100 miles re tighten to make sure. some people weld the exhaust but i don't think its necessary.

total install time took about an hour and thats not rushing.

Only thing that really is good to weld is the hanger right behind the muffler. There is two pieces that point up and have to bolts in them. Once you get it bolted drive it and like how it sits, weld those pieces together because those two bolts WILL fall out over a short amount of time.

about 450 with the custom tunes. stay away from plug and play programmers like the banks, bullydog, edge etc. get custom tunes! your truck and transmission with thank you

oh and if you are running a custom tunes you need to invest in gauges so you can monitor your boost, egt's, and trans temp. all this stuff starts to add up
