Got my straight pipe on today!!

man this thing rocks so much. It's soooo deep, the turbo is loud as ****, and the whooshing when the truck is decelerating sounds hard core.

Turbo spool is MUCH quicker, it has lost NO bottom end and might have actually gained some. It seems as though when I do 3rd gear roll-thru's at stop signs, it doesnt lug nearly as much. In 6th gear at about 60mph, I pin it and it instantly starts gaining. No lag or anything else like before. Sounds sooooo good.

Love love love it!

I love it dude. Sounds sooo deep and powerful. I was surprised what stock 3.5" piping could sound like.

Was that just a pipe instead of the muffler or what?

ya... mine had alot of turbo noise until my turbo went out from the damn rubber air filter sensor gasket breaking and getting sucked into it. At the time I did not know I could have just replaced the wheel... so I put my 01 turbo I had here on it. It is bigger so less noise. Otherwise I dont see a difference in performance. I personally love mine straight piped, especially when towing. The person next to you dont but who cares... just turn the chip up and smoke them while you are at it if their window is down!!!!

Ya my turbo noise is wayyyy up but it also has a super deep big-rig exhaust bark also. Tuner is next though. Tuner, tint, rhino liner, undercoating, and some mossy oak gear

i thought my 3.5 inch exhaust sounded awesome then i put the 5 inch one on and the sound got 100x better. Its so deep and throaty and with the 6637 intake the turbo is extremely loud. I love it.

Being as the mods I'm going to do wont require bigger than a stock diameter straight piped setup, I dont think I'm getting a bigger piece. BUT if I happen to find one cheap hehehe
