Stacks?

So I'm in a bit of a personal struggle here guys and i was wondering if i could get some help. I'm am dying to get a set of stacks for my truck with a cat delete and the whole nine yards however, with my career choice its not practical. My biggest concern is that when winter rolls around people aren't going to be happy when i go roaring up there driveway at 3 in the morning plowing with my exhaust screaming. Anyways, I figured I'd see if anyone had a similar problem or solution. Also, I know they make a dump gate for gassers that dumps the exhaust b4 the muff. and cat when u want and through the whole system when u want but i don't know if theres a similar product for us strokers. Thanks in advance.

So how does that work? Is it electronically activated, so I would just switch back and forth between the stacks and the muffled exhaust at liesure?

Or, install the stacks and run them with a high flow muffler. That way when you get into it, you can make some noise, but you wont be too too loud while plowing...Another option is to simply install the stacks, and use a some flex pipe on the bottom, and when winter comes around, slide the flex pipe back and throw the muffler on...It literally takes me about 10 minutes to completely remove my stacks all the way to the downpipe...It would maybe take 3 to installed or remove the muffler.

yup... i have a lil switch on my dash... when i want to run the stacks i just open up the electronic valve... i installed it because my daughter thinks the stacks are too loud so it was either this or they had to go

raul could a guy take that and reroute a DPF to it? reason I ask and I know most of you would never do it is because if the time evercame where they really cracked down on DPF's a guy could just have that installed and in competition use have stacks.
