Diesel Sounds

First of all, love the rig, love the power, love the sound! But, darling wife is not quite so fond of the noise. So, in what may appear to be an act of sacrilege, I am on a quest to keep her happy. After all, she is the one who insisted on buying the Toyhauler in the first place, and that led to the opportunity to add the PSD to the house, and I've always wanted one!

While inside the truck, once up to speed it is no problem. I have stock exhaust. I've heard of a tuner with a quiet mode, but this appears to be nothing more than a work around to slow the idle.

Any other suggestions? My friend suggested (kidding) stacks but I don't think that is in the cards. I suspect she will get used to it eventually, but if I can use this opportunity to sneak in a tuner and "better" exhaust, wouldn't that be nice!

Any ideas?

There arent any exhausts out there that are quetier than stock. But I would definately use the oppurtunity to get a custom tuned SCT and gauges

its a diesel. it is its nature to be loud. now if you want an ultra quite diesel get a 6.4. but a 6.0 is a lot quieter than my 7.3 lol

I would start to save my money and then you have a great excuse to pick up the 6.7L 2011 when it comes out!!! It's the quietest out there from the reports I've been reading.

But if that's not an option, I'd start by dynamatting the hood and firewall/cab. That would make it quieter inside but you can still have manly diesel howl going on outside!

Tell her that's what the radio is for! I had the same issue until the wife drove it a couple of times and realized the noise is not going away. Then I did the cat/muffler delete.

My suggestion is to take her for a spin around town in a older Dodge Cummins Some where in the neighborhood of 2000 or older. When she gets back in the Ford she will think you put it in wisper mode. Another option is a ipod for her or a custom stereo system. lol But for the most part she will eventually get use to it. Good luck, and keep in mind you can never always please a woman. lol jk (not actually it is true hehehe)

I didn't think about it that way. In that case, I drove a 94 5.9 cummins around for a few days, when our other work truck was in the shop for some body damage. I was pretty shocked at how loud that unit was driving on the highway. Couldn't even turn the stereo up loud enough to hear, over the engine

Somebody had a thread on the Org on the installation of Dynamat. I think he was doing it for the acoustics because he was instlling a stereo. Still, it will quiet things up significantly in the cab.

You'll just have to roll down the windows when she's not in the truck to get your diesel noise fix.
