Default 2017 down pipe

Didn't turn up anything in a search but wanted to ask, has the down pipe on the 2017 and newer trucks been improved over previous years ?
And if not who makes an upgraded one for the 2017 model year ?
Any products I can find only have an application up to 2016 making me think they've improved them.

There has never been a need for one in the 6.7s unless you are going for stupid power gains that use more than one turbo.

OK, then why do they offer them for previous years back to the 7.3 diesels ?
The earlier ones were formed, almost squashed down to fit between the engine and the firewall, thus the offer of a more round tube for the down pipe.
Take a look at a 2016 and their squashed some, not as bad as earlier models but wasn't sure if it was corrected in the 2017 and newer or not. Thanks

For one, thats like apples to oranges. Lol.. two, they are bigger down pipes and 3, they are way more efficient in airflow..

Only restriction on any 6.7, is the turbo itself. The stock hpfp and injectors can outperform the turbo.

Ok, this makes sense. Answered my question. Wasn't sure if this was the case or not. Thank you.
