    Hi there, I'm looking to upgrade the exhauts in my truck.
    I'm thinking in the MBRP Cat Back Exhaust does any one have this system install ? What's the pros and cons.. Thanks

    @dirtydeeds is the person you need to talk to about exhaust systems. He knows the truck inside and out.

    I have it. Would recommend. Great price, I paid $320 to my door. And installed in only 15 minutes, that includes putting my tools away even.
    Not a quiet exhaust, but I wasnt looking for that- and not obnoxious either. Nice deep growl, slight crackle once in a while after revving out and letting off the gas. Did seem to drone a bit around 2k rpm when new until it broke in for a month or so. @jberry813 bought the same one for his '15 as well after hearing my truck. He can add his opinion here I'm sure as well. I know on his Tundra with it being supercharged it made the exhaust a bit louder

    I have the 3" installer series. There was a sale and got it for just over $200. Excellent deal for a cat back even though it didn't include a tip. Check my build thread if you want to see some pics. If you get the same as mine, it droned I cut off the tip after it dumped after axle and the drone was gone! Very nice sounding exhaust and always gets complements.

    I do want to try the Bamuffler. Once I have some $$$ I will try it. Heard so much good things about them.

    Thanks for the mentions guys.

    I have a proposition: I can duplicate this system for the same price. Or, if drone is a concern I can build you something that doesn't drone. Either way, give a call and I'm happy to help.

    I loved it before supercharging. After...it's a bit on the loud side. I have a subtle drone as @Relentless said with low rpm. My solution has been to just go faster.

    I too have been looking at the MBRP cat back system, what's everyone's opinion on style? I am going back and forward between the single side exit and the dual side exit, any pros or cons?

    What does leaving the cat on do for you? I would think Removing the cat would make it run better. Aren't there 2 cats on later models?

    Typically removing any emissions control is illegal and will result in the vehicle failing smog testing. Just FYI

    Yes it is a state law. Illegal immigration, and marijuana are also against federal law but no one enforces them. So is public burning of businesses and police cars. No one enforced that law in furgerson and Baltimore. My state doesn't have vehicle inspections anyway. Wish they would enforce real laws and leave law abiding citizens alone. I remember when this was a free country.

    There are 4 cats total. The front cats have o2 sensors after them. If you remove the front two cats your ecu will get pissed and throw a check engine light. Along with said check engine light comes a sluggish feeling low and mid range. But overall hp increases by about 6. Not guessing. Saw it on my truck on a dyno several times.

    That said, if you only remove the rear cats there is nothing gained for performance. Just more sound. And more smell.

    And FYI, there is no benefit to removing front or rear cats. I've track tested stock to get a baseline. Then removed the cats at the track. The truck ran identical times with and without.

    I thought u may have meant HP. Odd that it had more hp but was sluggish. Wonder if headers would help.

    That wasnt a funny statement. It was a statement of fact, and showing concern for the direction this country is going.

    More sluggish because the ecu pulls timing and adds fuel. It thinks something is wrong and defaults into safe mode. Not really limp mode. But drives like crap

    Can it be reprogramed or get a gas engine programmer.

    Still possible to duplicate with minimal drone for around the same price?
