I love when i called a muffler shop to get prices one guys like " OH WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO DELETE THE MUFFLER?!?!?! YOU GONNA LOSE BACK PRESSURE AND ITS GONNA LEAD TO OTHER PROBLEMS!!!!, IF ANYTHING YOU WANNA GO WITH A SMALLER EXHAUST", all serious and junk. And im just thinking in my head, hmmm, they sell 5inch exhaust, muffler delete systems, etc. I clearly told the guy its a diesel and the way he reacted jusat shocked me....i just wanted to say," you know what, thatnks for your time, here a $1.25 and go f*** yourself!" Havent done it yet, but have plans for it very soon(the muffler delete that is lol) until i feel like spending the cash of 4in turbo back system

Thanks for clearing this up 5 months later.

I know what Milwaukee calls it, and I know what it is supposed to be called. It's like Kleenex, or Q-tips man.....c'mon.

And I didn't correct him on the NAME of the tool, I corrected him on what he was trying to say.....SAWZALL.

It is misspelled way to often on this forum.

That's all I have to say about that.......

I've got a 2002 ccsb 7.3 and i just cut the muffler off and used regular flex pipe and 2 hangers sounds awesome not as much cab noise as i thought it would have yes loud during winter sounds like a jet once the high idle kicks in but feels like power increase and on mine it lowered the mpg i was gettin like 19 with the muffler and without it's around 17.5 or 18 not bad yet but thats where goodies come into play but its definatly a nice sound , but on another note my buddy has a 99 7.3 also did the same thing and sounds completely different he has more cab noise same sound when it's cold and the high idle kicks in but in cab you hear more turbo and doesnt have the powerstroke flutter as i could describe.. just my expierience with it

Unless you have a diesel specific place, you are going to have a hard time finding a place that does 3.5" pipe. I went to like 8 different mexican muffler shops here in SA and there is nobody that carries, diesel pipe around here.

Ebay will be your friend or order them becuase nobody stocks 3.5" pipe.
