MBRP, AFE Atlas, Powerflow Diesel Exhaust Systems, Cat-back and Turbo-Back Exhaust Systems, Aluminized or Stainless Steel exhausts for Dodge, Ford and GM Chevy diesel pickup trucks.
High Quality Performance Exhaust Systems will use smooth, mandrel-bent exhaust tubing. A 4" diameter exhaust is optimal for most diesel pickup trucks, most performance exhaust systems will expand to 4" diameter as soon as room allows.
When upgrading to a 4" exhaust, you will typically see approximately 200 degree decrease in exhaust gas temperatures and a 20 hp increase in the power band.
What Make and Model Truck Do You Have?
Three things to remember when selecting exhaust:
1. Smaller size creates more resistance and consequently more heat and forces the engine to work harder to push exhaust out.
2. You get less resistance when the exhaust diameter is increased, when there are fewer bends in the system, and when the bends in the pipes are smoother, or your engine is moving less air through the exhaust system.
3. Less resistance = low end torque less heat and more horse power up in the power band, which is usually around 1800 to 2600 rpm.
When considering a 5" exhaust system, remember that a 5" exhaust on a truck with a few mods offers little or no performance increase or improvement over a 4" exhaust and that you may end up with even less torque. This means 0 gains, therefore, the 4" becomes the optimal choice.
A 5" exhaust only becomes practical when moving massive quantities of air. This refers to the use of only the largest turbos, twin turbos or an engine with a bigger capacity for air such as large commercial semis and large heavy equipment. The Bigger the block, the larger exhaust size.
