It's just a cone filter placed on the end of the line. Took out the stock intake filter box, a filter with a 3.25" opening fits perfectly on the line. Sounds nice but any improvements are debatable. Personally I'd probably go with a decent exhaust before CAI, but it's probably best to combine the two for the least amount of resistance. Combined with a DPF delete you'd definitely see some improvements. Next time I get a chance I'd like to stop in a muffler shop and have a straight pipe made up in place of the DPF, the only issue with that is what type of flanges they use since they may be hard to come by.

I would have had it done within an hour otherwise.

Tools needed
Sawsall - to cut the old pipe
Channel Locks - to help remove the rubber hangers
17mm, 9/16" & 5/8" sockets
getting (2) 9/16" bolts that are 1/4" longer than those originally supplied will make attaching the pipe easier.

I'm averaging 22+ mpg. With the mbrp, I'm hoping for a 10% improvement which will give me 24 mpg. So that's about 44 more miles per tank or about 2 gallons per tank more at $3/gallon which is $6/fillup

Total price was $307.72. Divided by $6 will pay for itself at 25,000 miles. Not to mention less back pressure + less wear & tear on the engine.
Did someone from our customer service department get you set up with that new mid pipe yet? Let me know if you have not received tracking info yet.

Hey Guy's..
Are most of you using the stainless exaust or the Aluminized?
Are you happy with the sound.. Not too loud without any muffling?
Do you have to cut the old one out? Just in case it doesn't work out for me?
I guess you could use band clamps in any case..

Yes, you have to cut it. Took 15 seconds with a sawsall.

As for the volume, it is not much louder than stock. It just has a deeper growl. At highway speeds the volume increase is not noticable, only during acceleration at lower speeds.

I just took a short 600 mile trip yesterday. I've done nothing to the car other that add the MBRP. Same passenger, same 100 lbs of tools and same skid plates. I was getting 19 -> 22 1/2 mpg recently.
This trip got 26.3 & 24.7 mpg, mostly highway 75 - 85 mph.
Purely anecdotal, but interesting nonetheless.

My dream exhaust starts at the downpipe with no converters,no pressure sensors, no 02 sensors, no resonators, mufflers or dpf. It also has the pcv (elephant hose mod) plumbed into it. Wonder how loud it would be. I am already talking to a tuner that can make it so that there are no codes.

This is what I drive every day, the F250. Its got the 7.3L or 444ci Turbo diesel. I have a 4'' SS straight pipe, no muffler no cat no crap! Its no louder than it was with a muffler on it. When it comes to a turbo diesel the turbo eats all the sound so it stays pretty quiet. When your talking about back pressure on a turbo diesel the less the better you dont need/want any! So the money you spend on an exhaust will continue to pay for itself over time... it takes a long time to get your money back but worth it. They should be mandrel bent pipes too which helps flo unlike the rippled pipe you get from the factory
