    In one stroke, ya cut the resale value by 50%. Maybe more...…………..you're totally messing this truck up from top to bottom. That's hard earned money sitting there on the pavement.

    We have legal open carry in this state now. Scares the crap outta me. K'kins has a temper.

    She hates trucks that spit out a cloud of smoke when accelerating. She usually pulls up next to them, and flips them off, and hollers something. I keep telling her that it's dangerous now that everybody can legally carry a gun in the car/truck. She gives me a wink...……………"So???????????? I got my own!" She's a feisty ol' gal. Hard for me to keep up with her sometimes.

Hits the outside corner of the tire, I checked on it after about 15 miles. The tire was little warmer on the outside corner of tire but not hot. Not really much loader, maybe 15% louder. Attachment 1708073im planning on chopping off the other exhaust component up further towards the engine
    why dont you use a tip like this without it necked down, and it will blow exhaust away from tire.....

    Or better yet why don’t you tuck the exhaust up tighter to the frame and kick it out the side ???

    Right now it looks like every other hood rat with a coffee can muffler hanging off the back of their Honda Civic....

    There’s really no difference.

    Especially for a guy who is trying to sell firewood/ delivering etc.

    Presentation goes along way.

    But maybe you are into that ghetto thing...

    Who knows.

    The necked down tip will make it a little more quite. That one will still blow the exhaust straight out that your showing. I might do some modifying to it but works perfectly right now. I can unbolt it and change it anytime

    Moto, that muffler delete looks ghetto. All you needed to delete muffler was a piece of pipe same diameter as ford pipe and same length of muffler. I would think the step down would hinder exhaust temps and the purpose of muffler delete is to lower exhaust temps. No?

    I did this on my motorcycle and made the hole even smaller in the back and kept cutting it up bigger and it got louder and louder. It’s not much louder with the muffler chopped off and I even made it shorter on the truck which will make it louder I think

    V-8 Turbo diesel is not a motorcycle. By necking the outlet down you just recreated the backpressure that taking off the muffler was supposed to fix. You are trying to jump into this "Performance" thing way faster than you should be. And I don't trust a thing your "diesel buddy" tells you. When he's been working on big trucks for 40 years get back to him.

    When I was a kid, I was told that reducing back pressure could warp your valves. Dunno if that's true, but I finally got wise, and just ran with a regular muffler less the tailpipe.

    Nowdays, I can't stand any kind of loud exhaust. Drives me nutz. I don't care if I do lose a little power.

    K'kins has a thing about those doods that chip their diesels so's they smoke like a barnful of hay burning, and I got a thing about loud exhaust.

    I wear earplugs on the tractors, and when driving the Detroit. Just can't take that loud noise anymore.

    The valve warping thing is from cold air being able to circle back inside and get them valves... would happen if you had too short or no exhaust pipe... or leaky exhaust manifold gasket in some cases..

    Motorcycles especially 2strokes are designed to need backpressure to run correctly.... completely different from a diesel motor that needs unrestricted airflow to maximize it's potential

    Reducing backpressure on a turbo diesel allows the turbo to do its job better.

    My girlfriend says she couldn’t hear much difference when she was in the truck just now and she has super good ears. A guy a work said he thought it was a touch louder. I’m happy with it and that’s all that matters to me. Might fine tune it when I get some time

    Actually a 2 stroke like a motorcycle or snowmobile needs that backpressure timed to pulse with the engine. Rotax and high altitude pipe?

    It's probably a little louder, unless you have done some healthy mods to it you won't notice much more noise.

    Usually you can make the noise all but disappear with bigger woofers and a healthy amp...
