Default Dodge Common Rail Cummins Filter Back Exhaust System

2012 CCSB 6.7 CTD

Now that I've got rid of all my old delete parts including my vin locked mini max, I've decided to just keep the new truck stock. All this EPA crap and having a white truck with black all over the box side probably ain't the best idea nowadays..

I'm looking at getting a filter back MBRP Black Series 4" exhaust. Is this a waste of money? As far as aesthetics, they look nice, but for 7-8 bones is there any benefit? I will compliment with a S&B CAI.

I tend to shutter at the idea of having any kind of filter exhaust system. I would consider more of the Smarty UDC tuner so you can re-map your fuel table to ease up the smoke issues. More or less like tighting the starwheel on a older P7100 bosch pump.

I think that why MnTom and myself hold deary to our older 2nd Gen's because we don't want the headaches of having to deal with smog devices and the expense of repairing the newer generation trucks.

It always brings me back to the muscle car years back in the 60's. By the time we hit the 70's EPA kicked in and restrictions. So like the muscle car era the diesel era is running the same thing now flopped over to EPA controls. I'll hold tight till there is a change again.

Austin, you probably won't see any difference with a new exhaust. Since you are planning to leave it stock I would leave it alone and spend the money on other play toys! I don't think I would change anything since yours is still under warranty and with the EPA beginning to crack down on our trucks soot is not a good thing....... Besides, the public is getting into the no black smoke thing too.

I haven't been able to find any info on the systems besides what the manufactures say..

Gotta be some benefit. I just don't wanna be stuck with a deleted truck and a marked ECM in a few years when I get rid of this one..

Naw... It already happen twice now 60's (Muscle cars) and the 00's (diesel trucks). It'll happen again but it might be a few decades till it does.

Guys yer totally getting off topic here. I know full well that the newer trucks have more electronics and emission control systems then trucks from 10 years ago. This thread is beating a dead horse. Go to any other forum an look at 4th gen performance; you will find all they talk about is deleting. Yes it's a awesome thing to do cuz of done it! But this time, I spend 52k on this truck, and with all the EPA problems recently, it's just not worth messing with it anymore TO ME.

So I was simply looking for any info I can about keeping this truck 'stock' but adding some parts that may improve performance. Not deleted tuner performance but maybe a nice sounding exhaust and intake and maybe some sort of tuner that is legal and allows me to do some neat things with the electronics in the truck. You guys have any idea how hard it is to get info about these trucks with the stock exhaust or even just half of the stock exhaust and EGR system in tack?!
