6.0 straight pipe do-over

I listened to all you guys who love the sound of a straight piped 6.0 and had the itch to delete the muffler. So I did. I have to say, it rumbled great until the hair dryer turned on. Out for a drive...resonates a little about 2000rpm, no big deal, it sounds kinda cool. BUT at 2600rpm it sounds like a jack@$$ playing a trumpet...badly! Do you guys with straight pipes have this noise, or is it combining factors. Let me know if this is fixable, or I'm taking the pipe out and welding the muffler back. BTW, 4" turbo back.

Don't know what to tell you. I love the sound of my 4" turbo back. You running a stock tune? Maybe a more aggressive tune would help.

I'm running looney. I love the drone not the crackle. Stock it doesn't have that. Must be a timing related sound.

Sure takes less time to cut it off than to weld it back on!

man I love my 4" straight pipe, how could it sound more badass at 2200rpm and above? it's all V8 throat

you're still going to get the hair drier sound with a muffler, just not as loud.

I've run a few different setups. Stock turbo with and without muffler, 03 turbo with and without muffler. I still like the 06 turbo and straight pipe the best.

Do you guys have single (thin) walled tips installed?


I have noticed my truck (thin material tip) has a more annoying tinging/crackle compared to other local ORG members with either a thicker walled tip or no tip at all..


If everyone could EDIT their threads to see the difference that would be great


I still LOVE my straight piped 6oh

The more I hear mine the more I seem to like it. I find myself windows down no A/C in90* heat to listen to that sound. I have a home made 5" tip cut from a international stack.
