Banks monster exhaust straight pipe?

I bought a 06 king ranch 6.0l and the previous owner put a banks monster exhaust through it with the power elbow and all that good stuff but it has no chip, no egr delete and no head studs. It still has the cat and the muffler and sounds decent. Was wondering cutting off the muffler and cat, would it sound better or does the banks exhaust system entirely kill the sound? Or is it not worth it? How loud will it be? Will the turbo have enough back pressure? Can you pass inspection in nc if you cut those off?

Thanks

Diesel motors do NOT need any back pressure. It'd help your motor with both cut off. Or at least a free flowing muffler, no cat.

Its not because it a diesel motor, and yes it need back pressure. It's because it has a turbo, that make's all the back pressure it need. Pretty sure of what im saying, at least that's right for the gazzer


And yes i would cut off anything that isnt a pipe under this ahah ! But dont know for the emission par, we dont have here

What I did was the diamond eye 4 in straight pipe off the turbo. I liked the way the banks exits out the back of the truck so used that. They are both 4inch.

Can you cut off the CAT just like you can the muffler or will it have sensors on it? never straight piped a truck, so if i take it to a muffler shop do i say "cut off the muffler and cat"? or does it need to be "gutted"

You can cut it off just like the muffler but most muffler shops won't cut off a cat, at least not around where I'm from. I had to cut out my cat myself

Just went to see and they said they couldn't cut my cat off since it's a newer truck, how hard is it to cut off yourself?

Not hard at all if you have access to a welder. Just cut it off like a muffler with a torch or sawzall and weld a piece of pipe in place of it

You only have to cut one side. The other side is flared with a clamp. Here is a pic of mine, I let my buddy cut it and he hacked it all up so the welding looks like chit. It took forever to get it welded with all the gaps that were around it Banks monster exhaust straight pipe?-imageuploadedbyautoguide1361825231.951801.jpg
