Removed the muffler

Its sounds very cool and i dont think im going to put it back in place. I was thinking about welding up a new tip to dump just before the rear passenger tire. Does anyone see a problem with this? Also I could be making it up but it seems to accelerate faster from the 2-3k rpm range, am i dreaming?

Finally, any thoughts as to why my neighbors 96 7.3 is significantly faster than my 00 7.3, espically in the low RPM's? He is on his 3rd trans and im on my first. I really think my trans is causing me poor gas mileage also, seems to "slip" a lot.

Thanks and Happy Gobble Day

Quite a few guys are dumping the exhaust out in front of the rear tire, only problem I see with it is you'll have soot all over your passenger side rear wheel.

I have seen folks do this and the wheel gets black, black!! I reckon it all depends on how much coal you roll!!! Removing the factory muffler removes a lot of restrictiction and you will notice a SOP difference, now get some more air through the front end and you will really see a difference!!!
Also fill out your signature so we know all about your truck and wha you have done to it.

bigo1966, I have the red line unplugged from the waste gate to allow for quicker spool and slightly higher pressure.

You can do it... but remember soot is VERY acidic and anywhere it's allowed to build up overtime will be messed up by it.
