at 70mph they are not loud at all. but when your at a stop light withteh windows down it can be a little loud but i like the sound i find myself sometimes turning down the radio to listen to the stacks sing along with the turbo. you will really like them. but i am a diesel freak anyway so the sund is joy to my ears lol. i think you will like them. oh by teh way that is a video of my stacks i plan on making more vids but that was a test video i will try and get some incab sound clips and post up for ya and i still have to get my chip so i can blow some soot out the back.

omg they are the best things i have ever seen/owned/heard in my life! at idle they really aren't much louder than a normaly 7.3l engine, but i haven't gotten my new downpipe in the mail yet so who knows! haha, good ol' diesel rattle! but when you gun it, oh man you'll just love that sweet sweet sound! i passed my friend at an intersection the other day, he had his music blastin with his 2 14" subs and 800 watt amp to go those subs, and i just gunned it as i made the turn, he called me up abuot 10 seconds later and just screamed into his phone "dude those sound amazing!! i could hear them over my stereo!" definitly stack!

Ok I have 5" mitere stacks, no muffler.... the look, sound and attention is great, but if you ever, and I mean ever wanna have a conversation inside your cab while driving you better have a microphone. Every time I have the girlfriend in my rig I gotta drive with the radio all the way down and the windows up cuz we cant hear eachother over the drone of the exhaust right behind our heads. Other than that I love my stacks but I will be going back to a 4" turbo back system and ditching the stacks cuz it rattles your teeth loose when you get on the fuel pedal, and basically I tired of saying "WHAT?" when someone is talking to me.
