Straight Pipe

Guy at the muffler shop said if I straight pipe my 6.0l I will blow my heads. What is he talking about?

i'm sure there are literally hundreds of members on here with straight pipes. I'd say you have A better chance blowing head gaskets by not doing the exhaust.

I agree. I wanted to see if someone had a reason that he might say this. Kinda new to the 6.0l.

typical idiot that thinks hes a mechanic...he probably heard that the 6.0 has a tendancy to blow a head gasket so immidiatly he thinks any aftermarket modification will make em blow...ughhhhh put the straight pipe on youll love it, if its too loud for ya, put a flow through muffler on it and youll still love it, dont listen to the guy at the muffler shop.

I have an '03 that I bought with 85,000 miles on it and as soon as I brought it home I put a 4" turbo back straight pipe exhaust on it. Now the truck has over 100,000 and is running awesome! I say go for it as I haven't seen any ill effects, except for the reduced fuel economy when I first got it because I was always wanting to hear it.Lol

Keeps their liability down...find another shop or just get an MBRP kit with their delete pipe.

I've had mine straight piped for years now...NO issues and I LOVE the sound!
