My exhaust / tailpipe is bugging me , sooooo

I CUT IT OFF !!!!

lately when I have been walking up to my truck and im like damn my exhaust looks tiny and so does my tip so Ive been looking at 5 inch exhaust to a 6 inch tip but to the door is over $600 when im not even making enough power to fully use 5 inch and its a waste anyways cuz it only goes out to 5 inch after the downpipe so even though it sounds deeper there really is no performance gain worth noting if there is then I just sound dumb haha SOOOOO I spent 60 on a tip and cut my old stuff and dumped it after the axle and I love it !!

OHHHH and DANTRON I got wayyyy more turbo whistle !!!! I don't know if its the bigger opening or rolled double wall tip but there is def more

Haha! Damn that's sweet right there! Nobody will be able to spot black smoke coming out of the tailpipe either. I would do something like that if I didn't already spend a small fortune on my DPF-Back exhaust kit. I'll be deleted soon and hopefully that's satisfy my need for more turbo whistle! Yipee!!!

The more I look at this the more I like it Haha.

I may be doing this soon as well!

Is your exhaust louder now due to echoing off the ground? Or not to bad since its behind the axle?

Why not just do a turn down tip at the end of the down pipe? You'll have all the whistle you'd ever want.

It might be 1db louder but with the tires and what not and the Sony bumpin Jason Aldean you can't tell the difference haha I'll take a sound clip tonight when I'm off work .

Haha I don't care about the turbo whistle I just threw that last part in the end to bust dantrons balls cuz he asks in every mod thread about if it makes the turbo whistle louder but he was super hesitant to delete, for good reason of course but just being a smart ***
