muffler removal

quick question, while im saving up to buy an actual turbo back. but in the mean time i was thinking about removing the muffler on the factory exhaust. does anyone see a problem with that? i would guess it would definatley be louder, but would it cause and problems? still be able to tow with it?

not sure. Correct me if I'm wrong: But i believe the turbo is designed to operate with a certain amount of back pressure on it some of which comes from the muffler.

so being that the truck is a 6.0 running the factory 3.5" exhaust straight piped would cause a problem? i still plan on retaining the factory cat

I think you will be fine, the cat alone should provide enough back pressure.... figuring MBRP makes a cat back straight setup. Im running a Bully Dog turbo 5'in back with a muffler delete, Ive had no issues what so ever.
