I always wanted a little bit of sound out of my '03 silverado, but am a little old school and couldn't see taking off the factory stainless exhaust, so I figured I would just wait until the factory exhaust needed replaced. Well, I'm still waiting!! 10+ years old with 235,000, friggin exhaust is still fine.
Just test drove a lightly used 2011 F150 last night....Lariat, but it had dual exhaust...super sweet truck but I'm not sure if I like the rumble on such a classy machine....it's one thing on my Harley, but a luxury truck? Just dunno.....
Myself, I prefer true dual exhaust and not split duels. Unfortunately most have to do split duelas with the stupid laws we have these days. I also prefer glass packs for that old school sound. I do have to say though, glass packs sound better in big blocks with higher compression than small blocks. I have had them on many older hot rods and jeeps and that is just my assessment of them.
i'd love to duel my 364 (6L). unfortunately its stainless. not allowed till it goes bad, according to wife unit. it does have 2 cats and i'd love a set of cherry bombs out the back. as far as the diesel trucks, its for hauling freight,not running around town.
Just put new 4" turbo back stainless exhaust no muffler or cat and I think it sounds great. I had a head gasket blow for the second time on my 2006 ford f250 diesel with only 50000 miles and we did the studs and egr delete and a couple other mods so I got new exhaust right away as the factory was getting rusty. Picked up about 175 more horses and about 3 more mpg
