Straight pipe help!!!!

I am wanting to straight pipe my stock exhaust. I unfortunately do not have a buddy or uncle with muffler shop.Are most of them uilling to perform this surgeryI have the skills to do it myself I have not had muck luck finding 3.5"" pipe and parts locally.If I gut the cat and add high flow muffler will that be almost as good I have been looking at FBD 4" but just orderd chip and guages from Stealth and could stand to save some cash.

Yup, check around at your local muffler shops. I can't recall exactly what mine ran me, I am pretty sure it was under 100.00 for pipe and welding.

A high flow muffler definitely isn't the same as a straightpipe I had a high flow muffler on mine and there was a HUGE difference after I removed it and straightpiped the exhaust. And like all the other guys said you should have no problem getting pipe from a muffler shop and even having them do it for cheap

I bought a full turbo-back and it was the best decision ever. I was going to make my own, but decided to spend the money and the fitment, the look, the sound, everything turned out great. thats my .02 buy a system

Beware!!!! The King Has Returned

i did a 3.5 down to a 4.5 the rest of the way no cats or muffler. it is a bit loud but the power is there when i need it. the truck never knows what it is like to just pull its own weight it always has a load. now it is has the power to pull.

I had mine straight piped (no cat either) and had a stainless tip that i bought put on for about $100.00; $160 including tip, but I just put on a turbo back 4" system and I like it much better.
