Well I finally did SOMETHING to my exhaust.
It already had no cat, so I decided to straight pipe it yesterday.
It only took me about 1 1/2 hrs.(AT LEAST half of that time was spent staring at the truck with my Sawzall in my hand trying to decide if I REALLY wanted to do this).
The answer is yes!
Anybody who is looking for a real cheap exhaust mod, I definitly recommend this. I couldn't afford a new exhaust system, so this is what I did.
3' of 3.5" galvanized flex exhaust pipe- $12
2 3.5" exhaust band clamps- $20
1 new exhaust hanger- $6.50
The look on my neighbors face when I first started it up- priceless!
The throttle response is waaaaay better, no lag at all. Oh yeah and it sounds wicked awesome! Don't know what it did to my EGT's or my MPG's, but so far, well worth it!
PS I do recommend NOT doing it on blacktop when it's 103 deg. like I did
