Well i'm going to get my stack today...I'm doing a single mitre cut set-up. I'll probably go with the 7" stack, but as always i'm curious to hear what any of you may say on the subject...What do you think, 6" or 7"??

6" looks good and appropriate. Not too small yet not pencil stacks.

My neighbor has 7" aussie stacks and it makes his truck look like he is compensating for something.....:hehe:

Just my observation on the subject.

FWIW, I have a single 5" and it has no backpressure. I am sure if it since I have an adaptor I made that is broken and there is no soot around it. It has been that way since February.

thanks strokin, i'm thinking that only 1 7" stack wouldn't look too ridiculous, thats what i'm doing...only 1. they don't have the 6 in stock and can't get one till friday. Unfortunately i'm an immediate gratification type...so i'll probly buy the 7" today, cause its in stock. :shrug:

Hope it's not too big looking. :doh:

Single 7" looks cool. A lot of guys around here run a single miter in the center of the bed.

Update

Ok,
I really wanted the 6", and was only going to buy the 7"($200 more than the 6") because they had it in stock that reduced to a 5". When I got there they had a 6" straight pipe. So I bought that and went to the international dealer(again) to get the reducer and clamps I needed to make the straight 6"(not reduced to 5") work.

Well I got the stack installed yesterday when I got home...about 2 1/2 hours fighting the rain and by myself. Really could have used an extra set of hands, but what are you going to do? Anyway, it's in. I'm really glad I went with the 6 instead of 7, the 7 looked cool, but I am not trying to be obnoxious, or giving the h/s kids around here the idea that I am in the "mine is bigger" competition.:hehe:

It sounds Awesome. Almost too loud for a DD. I know, I know...:supergay:
My first thought when I took it for a ride was, i'm taking this stupid thing off, this is obnoxious. I love the way it sounds so i'm going to leave it on for a while and get used to it. We'll see.

I don't have any pics of the install as it was raining on and off, but here are some pics of the finished product. Let me know what you think...I put it all together myself for about $300. I f anyone wants a list of everything I used, let me know...It's easy to do.

This next one is my favorite. :approve:

yeah I hadn't planned on getting the straight pipe, I wanted the one that reduced to 5", but they didn't have any in stock and I wanted it that day...So I bought the straight one and went back to International to get the reducer for it.

Still way cheaper than anyone else making them for you i think.

Looks good, exactly what I'm doing, but I'm only using the a 5" x 36"... I'll have two and when I get an inbed kit I might switch over to dual stacks.

Yeah for me the 48" worked better because I didn't have to use an 's' pipe at all. The 36" just wasn't high enough for me. I can always take the stack off, and cut alittle off of the bottom to lower it if I want to. I may, cause right now it's about 2-3 inches too high.

we'll see. :shrug:
