Drone!

hey i got a 2000 f250 7.3 psd etc. And i have a 4'' magnaflow turbo back exhaust on it . Anyways i love the exhaust and how it sounds, smooth and agressive. But it drones a lot, whether the windows are open or closed is there a way to fix or reduce this effect without getting rid of my exhaust or going back to stock?. i really dont want to take off the exhaust it cost 800$ cad.

Is there a muffler on that system? If yes, that is your issue. 4" back to the rear wheel doesn't produce drone.

Mods
turbo back exhaust, EGR delete, GPS, DVD, MP3
Privacy glass

For now.............................

A muffler doesn't cause drone. I just took my stack off and put a 4" system w/muffler to take care of the drone.


To the OP: You might want to try one of the FTE resonators. https://store.ftediesel.com/home/vie...p?idCategory=8

How about the installation of any tip? I have noticed the tailpipe are always long enough for a dually installation. The tip my be loose or offset enough to be to close to the tailpipe and cause the vibration.
