I dont think so. Why would it be slower? The undercarriage of your truck wont rust with all the soot on it.

I would just wait until you have all your parts before you take the stock exhaust off....

I aggree with this, besides covering the underneath of your truck with soot. Having exhaust fumes leaking into the cab is not cool either and cause health problems for you and anyone else in the truck.

Then install the rest of the pipe so at least it goes past the cab. The way it sounds you have everything but the delete pipe and the exhaust tip. Why not install the whole thing with muffler just don't clamp the muffler down real tight so it does not pinch the exhaust pipe. That way you can slide off the muffler and slide in the delete pipe.

Then when the delete pipe and tip show up all you do is replace the muffler and clamp on the tip and your done.
