? for guys with 5in exhaust

Just wondering if adding the 5in exhaust helped get rid of the "hairdryer" sound in the exhaust? My friend with a duramax just put a stack in his truck and it produces a nice deep tone now. I know I won't get that kind of sound but would like something with a deeper sound. Thanks in advance.

I have a 5" w/ no muffler still has the sound i think a muffler helps with that though there is a few guys that did it! the 5" gives it a deeper sound when you step on the skinny pedal though!

I dont think so i hear that give it some more turbo noise i may be going with a downpipe soon to find out first hand but the sound is not bad i really only here it with the windows down near a wall or cars for the sound to deflect back! I am just used to it i guess!

A 4" downpipe into a 5" exhaust with a muffler would be the best for getting rid of some of the hiss. It won't all go away, but it will reduce it.

I read somewhere that a 5" exhaust with a magnaflow performance series muffler did the job.Does anybody know if magnaflow makes a downpipe back kit.

I installed a muffler on my Magnaflow and it got rid of most of the hairdryer sound, I think it sounds much better than straight piped. Mine is 5" downpipe back.

Do you have any drone when you cruise on the highway?

Magnaflow doesnt make a 5" downpipe back kit so you have to get somebodys 5" delete kit. I got powerstroker67s 5" delete and the magnaflow 5" with muffler. Theres no hairdryer sound and it growls when you lay your foot into it.

Send a message via AIM to southern7.3
Any of yall have a video of your setups? Ive got a buddy who wants to do something with the exhaust but doesn't want all that hissing so thats why he hasn't done anything to it.
