MBRP Turbo Back installed! Question...

So I installed my MBRP 4" Turbo back last night. It sounds sick when getting on the gas but when at idle it sounds like ***! Just sounds like its pushing air and does not sound good to me at all. Whats up with this? is there a way to make it better? My buddy has a duramax with the same exhaust and his does the same thing but only till the truck is warmed up.

I love the turbo spooling sound at tidle. I have the same exhaust and love it. You will grow into the sound, i appreciate it becuase its so unique from alot of peoples exhuast. Haha sounds like a jet. But as for doing something about the sound i think the only way to damper that sound is what travisH3 said, put a muffler on it but then you wont have that badazz exhuast sound when driving down the road.

Yeah I guess I do kinda like it, I think when i first started it up I was expecting it to sound like a gas V8. But i do love how it sounds when its reved up! I have no muffler or cat on it. Now I just want to blow some black smoke out of it!

I too was expecting something totally different, but I love it. I like to see the expression on someone's face who hasn't heard my truck before when I start it up.

What kit did you end up doing? I'm gonna be ordering mine soon, and I know the performer series I think is only like $260, but I think it has a lot of joints and uses all brackets.

I am getting ready to buy the 4" MBRP no cat but I am getting a muffler. I figure that will be nicer if I am running up the highway. I'm getting it from FCDP Adam is a great guy!

I have the MBRP kit. I had a bit of resonance on the inside with the muffler. I went straight pipe and I cant even hear anything with my windows up. Now, in the AM warming up. She is screaming for my neighbors! lol
