what you do with your sidepipes?

i still have them for looks...but they're disaassembled due to the guys doin a crappy job on the install..plus doin the 180 and 90 bc of the cats, had wayyyyy toooo much backpressure.... so went down to 13mpg...andf lost major hp and tq...now have a dumped 18"x3" glasspack dumped...sounds schweet..but looks/sounds like it's comin fomr the pipes..


hey apache...if you cut the cats, you could probably get the exhaust pipe almost straight to the sidepipes. i was just looking at your setup in your gallery. you would have to install new o2 bungs for your sensors, and get either the antifoulers, or an o2 sim to get rid of the codes. but that would probably reduce all that back pressure and let her run like she wants.

Get a good set of headers. There are several shorty headers that require no modifications to the factory exhaust. For a stock to mildly modified I'd leave the exhaust alone except for headers. For a little hotter buildup, then I'd change it. I'm goin for the NO backpressure approach on ND RAM when I finally build a 408 however; 3" true duals with an X-pipe, NO cats, NO mufflers, twin Rumble Bee tips through the bumper/roll pan. Very Happy

OK so i think I'm gonna go with flowmaster 44's...i'm thinking about making it into true duals ...or should i just change out the muffler and put the 44's there and get a high flow cat?...how much louder would true duals make it and is it worth it?

and suggestions?

Thanks,
Dave

Flowmaster. I have a set of headers, hi-flow cat and a flowmaster and it sounds better and louder than any other 5.9 ive pulled next too.

okay...thanks for the input...but how much louder would true duals be then just having a flowmaster muffler and high flow cats...i think i'm def getting a flowmaster 44 muffler and high flow cat..but i may decide to go with true duals...are true duals alot louder or just alil bit...

my price range as of now is $500...not sure how much true duals would cost me

If your price range is $500, I would just stick with single output. A hi-flow cat and a flowmaster would make it plenty loud and then add a set of headers and your good to go.

i have to agree here. just switching to duals isnt going to make that much of a sound difference. headers cats and mufflers make the difference...loudest=long tube headers, no cats, no muffler.

True duals might trade a little torque for some horsepower but the 5.9L is all torque and no horsepower anyway so that's kinda a good thing. Laughing

Super high polished stainless steel - it will look good and last for years!!! Well worth the money. I continue to get compliments due to the high performnce sound the AT3030 makes.

I just put a 40 series flowmaster on my daytona sounds best in the area of 2000-4000 rpm. Much better than the stock borla system that came woth it. It depends on how load you want it. At idle mine is quiet but when you step on the gas you here a big difference. What is nice about it is if there is a cop coming in the opposite direction just take your foot off of the gas.

I removed the cat and put some shorty hedman header on it with a 40 serie flowmaster and
dual 2,5" pipe to the rear of the truck with some stainless 3" pistol gripp tips..
Sounds pretty cool with the intercooled Procharger on it Wink

If you want a full race wicked sound, loose the cat and go with two single chamber Flowmasters and a X-Pipe. I run this set up on my R/T and it is bad-a**. I don't have any drone in the cab either. I run a PROCHARGER as well! Here are some pics:

I know it's a little after the fact but the new Thrush welded muffler sounds good. I replaced my rusted out stock muffler with the Thrush after being extremely disapointed with the sound from a Flowmaster 44. The 44 was just too quiet for my taste. My favorite sounding muffler is the Dynomax Race Magnum welded muffler, I had one on my Dakota R/T. It produced a really nice deep rumble.
