Dodge Ram 1997, TD Series™ Turbo-Back Diesel Exhaust System by MBRP®. Single Side Turn Down Exit. Guarantee the best performance from your diesel engine by hanging a 5" TD Series low-backpressure turbo-back system. Off-roaders and low-rider builders will appreciate the turned-down tip that keeps the pipe inside the body and up high, protecting it from rocks, stumps and the pavement. A small straight-through perforated spiral-core muffler takes the bark out of the exhaust note, but still preserves that sweet big-motor rumble.
With constant-diameter bends done on a mandrel-bending machine, and minimum bend angles engineered in, it flows far more freely than any street exhaust system could. Manufactured in rugged T409 stainless steel, it’s the most cost-effective way to pave the way for all of the other modification you’re planning on making to your ride. This lightweight, easy-to-install system will give you the least backpressure and let all your other engine modifications really generate some serious horsepower. Because it deletes the catalytic converter, it’s legal only in competition.
Fifteen years ago, MBRP® started in the exhaust business by introducing the B&B Eliminator, a silencer that quickly became the best-selling snow machine muffler of all time. Exhaust system technology being as universal as it is, they soon branched off into cars, Jeeps, and diesel trucks, with amazing success. One of their secrets has been the practice of making as many universal-fit kits as possible. A couple of extra parts in the box means that a single kit might fit a number of different wheelbase pickup trucks, for instance. Reducing complexity in ordering is better for them, better for their distributors, and a great benefit for their customers, who are more likely to be able to find a kit that fits their vehicle on hand. In addition, they go to great lengths to make sure their systems fit properly every time. Careful attention to design and fabrication delivers a system that doesn’t need customization with a hammer to fit properly before the car or truck comes off the lift.
