Exhaust Performance

Well my truck had been running rough sometimes so just to be on the safe side I went and put my factory exhaust back on. Man this thing feels like it has more power now with my SCT and factory exhaust. Could it be possible that the straight pipe turned out in front of the rear tire was hurting my perfomance by not having enough backpressure?

Man Jason - that sucks! Did the stealership ever find anything wrong with it? Or did you just reverse the last change you made???

When I cut my exhaust off of my 7.3 at the DP and drove it for a week like that - it seemed to be sluggish and not as peppy as it was once I got the larger exhaust hung.... course that was all seat of the pants b/c I don't have any guages to verify any hard #'s with.

niiice - I guess its a good thing you're sending the decision maker It should do fine! I'll be towing my 22' fifth wheel this weekend for the first time (and my 20' boat behind that). So we'll both see..

well I'm not really worried about my truck pulling the 5 er, I used to pull my 30' travel trailer with my boat behind it, and it did great. I just hope I don't hook to it and the truck start running rough.

I have a 39' fifth wheel (17,000 lbs) that my 7.3 hauled fine. I will have the fifth wheel behind my new truck in a week or so. I will let you guys know the differences when I get back.

from what I have read you do lose some low end horses and torque by going to a straight pipe I dont really know how or why but I have seen that once or twice. Maybe this is what you are feeling if it even is true?

if you feel its running better with the stocker i would just keep it on.... you could always run a cat and muffler on your other exhaust and see if that helps
