Annoying Exhaust...

Anyone get annoyed with there strait pipe? Dont get me wrong i love the sound of my strait pipe..especially at WOT... But, my truck sees alot of idle time..not too long, but im switching trailers and loading and unloading stuff all the time and i dont like shutting it off unless im staying awhile, It gets really annoying with the loud azz pipe right there when im hooking up trailers and throwing stuff in the bed..you can hardly hold a convo with somone when your within 40 feet of the truck if your on the right side of it.. what can i do to fix this, I KNOW the obvious answer is throw a muffler on it, but i really dont want one

I was curious, would a single 6" stack make it better?, I would think getting the sound more up and out might make it better when the trucks at idle.. I dont know.. what have you guys with a stack noticed with the change? I know its louder overall when driving, especially in the cab, but i dont really mid that.. i just want to be able to stand next to the truck and be able to talk on the phone or hear someone talk to me..

Also, is there an exhaust smell issue in the cab with a stack, i dont have a rear slider so thats not any issue, but can you sit at a stop light with the window down without getting choked out? thanks

I put a stack on mine party because of what your talking about, I hated being around my 5" straight pipe w/muff delete especially on these hot Texas days out in the hayfield.

I have a rear slider and the only time I get some exhaust in the truck is when the windows open and I'm rollin coal. With rear slider closed and windows down, no problems.

And just because I can throw this in here..I'm upgrading to a 8" miter

You could try a turn down under the bed first....just an idea, won't cost much at all to find out....

not a bad idea, i think turn downs are really stupid looking though.. i actually thought about re-doing the exit so my pipe tucked up under the bed a bit and point the tip down at a 45 or so.. same concept as a turn down, just better looking...maybe

The turn down I was thinking of you won't be able to see at all.....do it before the axle.

if you do a turn down then you are going to start coating the under carriage with soot. and i found out the hard way it will start to discolor your rear bumper.

They "cones" for the ends of headers. I was going to go this route on my 65 Galaxie when driving to local shows. Maybe get one of those cones for your tail pipe when you want it quiet?

Im just going to ditch the cat and keep the muffler. It will still sound awesome under acceleration but when your just sitting there it wont be so loud. Kinda best of both worlds
