Thumbs up Another mod done!!!

Well my buddy Steve (Oldspice long story) came over and we put down pipes on our 95's today. Not a horrible mod to do. Especially when you have someone else do most of the work .

Steve's truck took longer because of the stock stuff he has, where as my exhaust is just a straight pipe that dumps out in front of the bed. Plus we did the learning curve on his truck. We took pictures and will post them later.

All in all the trucks sound awesome. Haven't been out on the highway yet but I anticipate a decrease in mpg because it sounds so cool when you have your foot on the go fast pedal.

On a serious note any thing we should watch for (mechanical or otherwise) having done this mod?

I feel like a teenager with the hot rod I never got to have !
See ya'
Craig

Well 48 hours after the mod the truck is running well. The sound running down the highway is nice and throaty. I do however, need to get more mods / upgrades done because I am going to get myself in trouble. A nice sounding truck but not a whole lot of get up and go.

Best part of the mod has to do with my 4 year old son when he asked me yesterday "Daddy can we get in your truck and go VROOM VROOM?"
