Mufflerless

My cat converter started to fall off this weeked untill I relized all I had was 3'' pipe instead of 3 1/2 ( I got kicked off the ''other site'' for talking about this.So I will be politicaly correct now ). But if it falls off this coming weekend..Should I get rid of the muffler too.Who else has done this and have they noticed a change..

Turbo back, toss the muffler if it's stock. If it's a straight thru aftermarket muffler just leave it unless you want it for the louder sound. The straight through muffler isn't really going to flow any more or less than a straight pipe.

i hacked off the convertor and muffler and welded pipe in and noticed more power and better fuel economy, also my truck doesnt feel constipated anymore, the best result was the sound of the turbo, it gets real loud when it starts to spool up, i catch myself always throttling hard because i love that sound and want everyone else to hear it.

It's because you got rid of the "crappy" parts of your exhaust!
