I got a little sawzall happy the other week and just cut mine off. Right now it is just dumped under the truck and sounds awesome! The lady friend didn't like it as much because her duramax is quieter and she doesn't want to be in a loud truck all the time...good thing for me I told her to kiss my and have a date with a new girl who loves the sound of my 7.3 tomorrow.

So to recap...do it! You'll love the sound!

yeah my friend has a 6.0 with no muffler but it sounds ok ...... it sounds more like a gas motor with no muffler.... do you think the 7.3 will sound a little better ?!

You can get on youtube there are quite a few videos out there of straight piped 7.3s. I personally dont, I never like the sound of a straight piped gasser but the sound my truck makes when I get on it is music to my ears.


Here is a pretty good video of what it would sound like

it helps the whistle, but if you do like jethro said and dump the cat and throw a 6637 intake on it, she will whistle all day long
