Hello everybody. Last week I got an AFE intake and a Magnaflow muffler installed on my truck and needless to say I wasn't impressed with the sound at all. When I asked the shop that did the install what I could do the recommended I run a straight pipe and they took the muffler off. Now it sounds insane but is this a good idea? Am I hurting anything by doing this?

Only your hearing and your image with your neighbors!!

I have a Magnaflow exhaust and when I installed it, I was surprised at how quiet it is!! For me that's good...my neighbors don't like noise, but I do at times wish it were louder.

Couple of members in the club have straight pipes and they do sound good!!

If the noise is OK with you, the pipe is OK with the truck!!

Well thats a relief I guess. I love the sound, I drive around with my stereo off and I slide my back window open. Too much fun.

So Danny are you coming up on Sunday? I want to straight pipe mine but havn't heard enough straight piped PSD's to justify the amount of grief I will get from my wife and daughter http://www.socaps.comimages/graemlins/shocked.gif. I know the boy will love it! http://www.socaps.comimages/graemlins/grin.gif

Awwww man i wish I new about this before I made plans. Slight chance I still may be able to change plans and head that way for a bit. I'd love to dyno my truck before I make any real changes to it performance wise. If I make it by there I'll take you for a spin around the block with all the windows down. You'll be hooked.
