whats louder?

1058 16
i had a stock exhaust with no muffler. it was LOUD. i just put a 5 inch turbo back with a muffler on it and it is alot quieter then it was. my question is. would doing a straight 5 still be alittle quieter then straight stock? because that was just a little to loud

Yep, you are losing the high pitched raspyness of the 3" straight, and getting the smooth, deep sound of the bigger pipe, so it seems quieter.

First of all you need to take that damn muffler off that 5 inch pipe, those pipes sound so freakin good straight piped i cant even put it in words. No it wont be to loud in the cab, but your audience will get a deep toned smooth, but loud, beautiful sound blown out of the pipe at them.

Straight Pipe that Thing It sounds GOOD!!!!

How do you guys like the straight 5 inch while towing? I have a straight 4 inch on my 89 and it gets pretty annoying on long hauls.
I havent got mine yet, but my buddy has one on his truck and its not to bad while towing, but we didnt go very far just probably 5 or 6 miles pulling a skid steer loader and we wer just trying to see how fast we could pull it so it was pretty loud.

I have a 5 inch straight on my annnnnd all i can say is i love this thing! at about 2200 rpm the things just resonates alot but other than that exact spot its amazing. then barley giving it any gas keeping it low in the rpms like 1200 or so it sounds like a big rig. I dont think my neighbors like it at night but hell I DO! :headbang: Ive hauled an hour trip with it and cruising its not annoying at all 5" straights are amazing:party018:
