Cool Exhaust Project

Basically I got a 51" Donaldson muffler that has 5" exhaust through it and had it welded in to a 5" delete pipe. Behind all of this will be a single stack kit with a 7" MBRP black mitre. Since I have had a stack on the truck before, I knew that drone was something I did not want. Exhaust noise really isn't a big deal to me anyway, especially with the stock turbo's. The plan is to see how much this muffler quiets down the hair dryer noise and how good of a job it does getting rid of the drone I know all to well. Some will probably think I am crazy for putting such a big muffler on the truck, but I have my reasons.

As far as restrictiveness goes, this muffler flows more air than your typical Magnaflow flow through diesel muffler, so that isn't going to be an issue. It is designed as a high flow, high performance muffler. Next week I should have everything completed. The stack will be in either Monday or Tuesday, so by the end of next week I should have finalized pictures and a video.

Here is what I have so far...

Wow! Out of curiosity was that custom made? I've never seen a muffler that larger for a "passenger vehicle".

It's a Donaldson big truck muffler.

The only thing custom is the combination of the delete pipe and muffler.

Won't be an issue. It's the length of a full DPF/DOC (used Powerstroker67's 5" DPF/DOC) delete pipe from the downpipe to where the end of the DPF would normally be. Measurements are perfect. The stack kit will bolt right up and sit perfectly normal.

All of the ones I looked at were 51" long. They have some that are 30" and some that are I think 40-42", but this one fit the bill for my needs.
