First off, XDP was great to deal with, got the system very quick. Box was beat to hell by UPS but its packaged very well inside, will do business with XDP in the future. As for the exhaust system, like the title says, give MBRP your money instead. Absolutely no way on gods green earth that down pipe is gonna fit, tried multiple different times, if you think so you're high. Mine was hitting the passenger up-pipe, pinch weld seam on the firewall, and the transmission crossmember. Read the forums and pretty much the same conclusions from other people, I'm not destroying my truck to make something fit. I weld professionally for over 15 years now and the weld on the DP is hammered dogs**t....burn through with big hangers on the inside and you can tell where they blew through and just kept trying to fill the holes......disgusting. Clamps are a joke, welds on those are questionable at best. Tried to reach out to Silverline as XDP suggested with no response. Ordered a MBRP downpipe, fit perfect, welds are nice and clean, no burn through, exactly what you'd expect. Also had to order an adapter and new lap joint clamps, fire up the TIG welder, start cutting and weldin to make it work. Bottom line dont waste your hard earned money on a product from a company that's let's products go out like that, it's ridiculous. Tried and tried to get that downpipe in there to no avail so it got the sawzall treatment when it came out.....no pride and craftsmanship whatsoever.

Bought this 5in turbo back exhaust system for my 2006 F350. First off the exhaust welds are hand welded and are not very good looking welds. The exhaust hangers are welded on but not at the correct spots or even the right angles. Also the exhaust clamps dont work well even after they are tight the exhaust pipe was able to move at the join. The down pipe is where I had the most trouble. It is a 4 inch down pipe so it is very tight and touched in three places the up pipes, the transmission, and along the frame. No matter what there is no way to avoid touching and I didn't want to start smashing in the firewall and heat shield. The rattling in the cab was too obnoxious and if left alone something would have to give. I was able to make it work because I have a welder, chop saws and a grinder. I reused the stock 3in down pipe and weld back the piece that I cut to take if off. Also had to buy a 3-4 inch adapter then cut and welded the 4in down pipe to fit together. Also for the exhaust joins I bought exhaust band clamps with made a big difference holding everything tight. I only used clamps with hangers in the kit to attach to the exhaust hangers on the truck. Overall I like the sound but knowing what I know now would highly recommend a cat back exhaust. When you buy a product you shouldnt have to modify in order for it to work properly. If so I should state in product discription so the customer can make a better decision.
