Neighbors probably hate me

So a few days ago a friend bought a Powermax for his '03 and I helped him install it then bought his stock turbo from him for $250. Yesterday I installed it on my truck and took off my straight pipe (so that I can cut the axle hump out and weld it back together to dump right in front of the tire, also blew out the side of the downpipe/straightpipe flange gasket). So today (leaving the house at 6AM) I was running an '03 with a 4" downpipe (ending right under the passenger seat) and nothing behind it...my ears are still ringing. Surprised noone called the HOA on me yet. Lmao.

If it weren't for the sake of not being able to hold a conversation inside the truck or hear the radio with the windows UP, I would leave it as is. It won't be too much quieter with the turnout considering it will only have one bend to get through, but the noise will just be directed farther back and to the window of whatever car I'm passing. I'll keep it as is for now until I get around to cutting my pipe up, or my girl gets fed up with the ridiculously loud howl and holds the..."goods" hostage until I fix it (she did before when I was runnin' open headers on the Mustang)

My neighbors already hate me. I have straight pipes on my track car BMW. They always b*tched about it being too loud.

The best part is after i got my truck 18 months ago i garaged my bmw for some reworking and overhauling. and 4 months after it went in the garage and hadnot been out they still complained about my car. So i bought a 4 inch straight pipes for the truck and been running it like that since. I cant wait to piss them off with the 03/pmax turbo this summer!!!

The joys of pissing my neighbors off!!
