H&S mini maxx ordered from Alligator!

I just ordered the mini maxx and 5" SS straight pipe from Alligator. I decided to call tech support at the shop to ask about the exhaust and ordered it over the phone. I told him I was a member of ps.org and told them I had heard of a promotion if mentioning the forum. They said they would look into it and said they would throw in a muffler for free! So free shipping and free muffler. Score! I can't wait to get it. Just thought I'd let everyone know in case someone else was lookin to pull the trigger.

That was cool of them, but you don't want the muffler. Only difference with and without muffler is under heavy throttle. Without muffler sounds way better IMO.

U don't need the muffler. The truck is way to quiet straight piped. It's pretty sad actually.

I'm pretty sure I will get mine with a muffler or maybe even a resonator, haven't done much investigation on the latter. It's hard for me to believe that there is no difference. I want mine quiet especially since I tow a fifth wheel and even the stock exhaust has a drone at certain rpms. An uncorked exhaust with a tuner has to be louder.

dont waste your time installing a muffler, I did and then it was kind of a pain to remove it. Look at it this way it is a flow through muffler that gets clogged very quickly and is then just a useless weight attached to your exhaust.

If you tow you will get tired of straight piped. Mine got so annoying pulling the 5th wheel I wouldn't even crack the windows while towing. I like it much better since I installed the muffler. Straight piped sounds good and is not too loud without a load.

Thanks for the input! I don't tow and to be honest, I've never heard one of these trucks in person, deleted. No one around here has dropped any money into these trucks. I have the only lift I've seen on a 6.4 and I'm only leveled with 35's lol. Everyone with 08-newer trucks around here are bone stock. I'm still waiting to get my packages in the mail, but I think I'm gonna leave the muffler in the box. I've towed maybe 5 times with my truck so it sounds like I won't be needing. But who's gonna turn down a free muffler.. Not me. Hopefully it will be here this week!

I've looked at all the exhaust removal threads but not a single one has mentioned using pneumatics? Is this for the fear of shearing off rusted bolts? My packages come tomorrow but unfortunately I signed up for a 48er at the fire station so can't get to it till thursday Has anyone used an impact gun The elbow grease and the know-how is not the problem, its the anxiety of finally gettin my truck did! Thanks in advanced!

Installed today in 5 hrs. The first 2.5 hours was by myself.. finding the "purple wire" was a biotch but finally got it. Started the downloads and proceeded to the removal of stock exhaust. The nuts and bolts weren't that bad, it was the freakin hangers! I think I tore both lats playin tug'o'war with a 24" breaker bar on those things! Installing the flo-pro 5" DP back was another story.. crew cab long bed, it barely fits. I'm gonna have to go to peterbuilt to get a 6" piece of pipe. The joints are just barely holding onto each other, and wrenchin on the pipe clamps excessively is just a quick fix. Well, took it out for the tranny relearn and holy chit!! I thought I was in a Vett! Why did I wair so long to do this mod?! Don't question yourself and drop the cash! You'll be "floored"!
