4" exhaust with muffler=stock quiet, intake noise thoughts.

I installed my new 4" exhaust, downpipe back with a muffler, this weekend and took her out in the hills for some fun. Other than the DPF/CAT being removed I cant even hear a difference in the sound. So if anyone is looking to get a less noticeable set-up, this may be your key .Comments... Also what intakes seem to be the loudest and which ones seem to be quieter? Need more flow now...

I had a straight 4" before this weekend, put a muffler in it.
I loved the sound with the straight pipe, but it was LOUD on the outside. Inside was fine. I started to get looks from Johnny Law pulling my trailer through town. With the muffler I can still hear it inside, outside it is not as loud.
I put in the Diamond Eye muffler that is perforated and packed.
Intake - I just used a drop in, but I am sure anyone of them with an open top would be the loudest. I can hear mine more with just the drop in.

And I am running the mild tunes. The less smoke I make = less attention I attract while the goodies are installed.

I am running the Innovative Street right now, might see how it does towing 18000# and check the temps. Might be too hot to run with 105 degrees outside. The tow tune so far has been great.
Before I put a muffler on the truck I had the Xtreme Street driving back from Bakersfield. A CHP was next to me and kept looking at the truck, more so when I took off. That is when I decided on a muffler. At least they wont notice the sound as much.
My 96 Impala gets enough attention, Dual 3" will do that.

Most CHP here wouldnt know what to look for anyways. Another benefit of actually having a muffler is at a quick glance, everything looks legit. I had window tint on the front windows too, but I have since took to off. ANYTHING I can do to not draw attention and get mileage is my goal ! (Im up by fresno)

They might not know what to look for but they do have ears and my truck was loud without a load and really load with a load. I went to high school and college in Fresno.
Actually come up pretty often.

Do you guys have any random check points you have to go through down in Central or Southern Cal? I live in Northern Nevada, but drive though Northern Cal quite frequently. Im always seeing CHP but never check points. I know they are pretty aggressive up here for speeders and such, not so much on Diesels unless they are cranking the smoke out. Probably a Southern California issue mainly with the smog and the bigger cities...

Not that I know of. I travel often between central Ca and the Carson area. I wouldnt run the hot tune through any of the passes though. I know they have weigh stations and the occasional DUI checkpoints. Just be smart about it you will be fine.

I have never seen one. But I do live near the Oil Fields. I have been told that some are down south, but the same, never seen one.
I am not afraid of the delete, the noise. The smoke is one thing, but doing it with a bunch of noise towing a trailer is not a good idea with the way the economy is. I wouldnt have a delete if it wasnt better for the truck and MPG. My 6.0 was deleted also. But it makes a much bigger difference on the 6.4's.
