Straight Pipe

Alright. People are telling me not to straight pipe my truck because of the back pressure or something like that. While on the other hand people are saying it's totally fine. You guys here seem to know what your talking about so is it bad or good? I know that it makes it sound better. But that's about it.

Thanks

well if you chip your truck yes straight pipe will help. with a diesel the less back pressure you have the better. with a turbo you dont want your hot EGT's(exhaust gas temperature) to be high or it will melt stuff. if i were you i would get gauges EGT, trans temp, and boost then straight pipe so it can breath then a chip. custom tune will be best for you, banks diablo and edge dont tune your trans so that will be hard on your trans. unless you have a 6.0 there are better tunes for that. but you will see benefits from a straight pipe.

Dont know much of the finer details so I wont act as if I know, Howevere I have been running my 03 6.0 stock other than the airaid and the straight pipe and i havent had any probl's and it feels stronger,quiker than my pops 05 6.0 also stock with same airade and a banks cat back system and the exhaust rumble outbeats other cat backs. (It can b a bit loud for morning warm-ups in city comunities)

Thanks guys, I'm definitely going to straight pipe it. By the way, I already have the banks six-gun kit so I wouldn't need to go out and spend the extra money on gauges.

Thanks again guys

every once in awhile I have to roll down the passenger window just so I can hear the jet. I love my straight pipe.
