How does that sound, and what do you use your truck for.bobem12 said:i have straight pipes off the cat and to me it sounds mean and loud but it is definitley not too loud in the cab, at highway speeds it is actually not loud at all (inside). Straight pipes are not very expensive and to me they're the only way to go.
It will sound good. I had my 98 5.9 like that for a while, and it sounded mean as heck at idle. When the RPM's got up above about 3,000 it did quiet down just a bit. Now I have cut off the cat, and put in a custom magnaflow exhaust with 3 1/2 inch tips. It is deep and powerfull, and only gets louder the higher the rpm's!! :rck:KJRich said:My dad wants me to put a piece of pipe in place of the muffler on his '97 5.2, otherwise leave exhaust stock, including the cat. I wonder how that will sound.
