Cool exhaust Q

how loud do you think my 6.0 would be if i ran 3 inch exhaust no cat no muffler and cut it about a foot in front of the back wheel with a turn down. its a crew cab long bed. right now its no cat no muffler 3in all the way to behine the back tire. its just not loud enough of a whistle and i know all those crazy bends around the axle really quiet down the turbo whistle. but the real question is will it be too loud because its probably 5-6 feet of bend pipe i'd be cutting out.. your thoughts?

my thought is don't waste your time cutting it up hoping for more whistle. You need to let us know what year your truck is. If you want it to be louder do 4" turbo back. In my honest opinion, you won't notice anything by doing what you're describing.

I just ran my truck for a day and a half with just 1/2 a down pipe (don't ask )

I don't think it was any "louder" (and no more whistle) than it is now with 4" straight pipe, exiting behing the rear wheel.

It does sound a hell of a lot better with the full 4" exhaust though . With just the down pipe it was a little "harsh sounding" (I don't know how else to explain it )

its a 2004. i figured i'd try to save money and not get a whole new exhaust. i think i know what the other feller means by a harshy sound. more of an air rushing noise right?

i had a 7.3 before this truck and i did the same thing i mentioned above and the turbo noise was very loud. almost doubled in noise. sounded like a jet taking off from the stop light so i ended up putting 4 inch on it to tone it down.
