why dont you just completely straight pipe it???? its b.a. but yes i think using an exhaust system 4'' will be louder than a s.p. factory and btw TAKE THAT DAMN CAT OFF!

if i were you i would buy a 4'' system without cat and muff would be pretty cheap

I'd put a 4" turbo back straight pipe on it and call it a day.

i have the 4" turbo back 4" mbrp.. no cat with muffler, the sound isnt that much louder than stock.. a little but not to much.. I was worried i didnt want the old cherry bomb sound.. I'm a little curious how much louder the muffler delete would be also..

Im getting a 4in Farm Boy Diesel turbo back. Its a smokin deal. My truck is straight piped on factory exhaust right now and it just cackles. I want a deeper tone so I went with the 4 in. Pm the guys at Farm BOy Diesel. They have killer prices

In the cab is a little bit louder going straight piped. Outside is A LOT LOUDER!!! An MBRP has the performance and is a bit louder, but it still retains the muffler to keep dad happy.

I just went from straight pipe stock exhaust to a FBD 4" no muff, no cat, and i dumped it in front of the rear axle. its a little louder at idle, but WOT is insane. It is louder in the cab also. When the engine loads up there is that loud and deep moan in the cab. Just my .02 about it...Rod
