is it possible....

has anyone ever straight piped the factory exhaust? i thought i could delete the muff and kitty by welding in new tube. Maybe it'll work. Any suggestions before i do something stupid? i have more time and tools than money here lately. And has anyone made a DIY intake? i saw one on here made from diamondplate and it looked preety trick, but i can't remember where i saw it or who's it was. Maybe one day i'll be able to actually buy upgrades to my truck rather than making them..........

You bet. I know the OBS owners always talk about the downpipe being the weakest link in the exhaust also.

you will need a piece of 3.5 inch pipe long enough to fill the gap where the kitty adn muff once resided. I done mine and the pipe is aroud 87-88" long. the guy at the exhaust shop even swelled the ends so i could slide my existing pipe inside it. I cut mine off right at the weld on the front of the kitty so I could save the flange to reconnect it to the down pipe with and cut the back right at the end of the muff. welded in the straight pipe and added a couple hangers. I'll try to get some pics if you need 'em.
