    It's been a very long journey with exhausts on this truck, and hopefully this will be the final and best sounding/best performing set up.


    My set up a few weeks ago was:

    -DT long tubes
    -URD 4x4 Y
    -URD 3" with dynomax (aka quiet muffler)

    This set up sounded great once warmed up. I was very satisfied with it. Except I decided to cut off the tail section one day because I wanted it to be more stealth. However in doing that ,the sound resonated under the bed and made it much louder inside and out...which I actually was ok with, but I was worried I might get pulled over for its loudness.

    where I cut it...

    So I took Gadgets advice and bought a second straight through magnaflow....only instead of a 18" I bought a 14" hoping it would be more quiet but not as quiet as his truck. Well it turns out this muffler combined with the dynomax shut it up almost 100%. It sounds like stock but with a weird deep drone to it. I tried to convince myself to like it but I just cant take it anymore...I want it to actually sound like it has some power under the hood. The other problem was the muffler was welded in tilted/crooked to avoid hitting the cross member...the 3" exhuast is why it's so close.

    crooked shot and look how close to the cross member it is...

    So I listened to many different set ups I decided ntinhri's sounded the best, but I still wanted to experiment a little, so I'm going to try this...

    Im going to keep a 14" second muffler(center/center), but I will swap the 5x8x14 for a 4x9x14....this gives me the same amount of muffling material, but in a shape that will fit under the cross member...so it wont be welded crooked like it is now. It should be straight.:top:

    Then I will remove the dynomax for this beast of a straight through(center/offset). It's a 22" long magnaflow 5x11. Which is actually a 6x11.5x22

    Im hoping it sounds good...I wont know until monday or tuesday when it gets welded in. I will post a video when its ready.

    Ok I just got back from my exhaust shop and I think iI just found the perfect set up:rock:

    It sounds WAY different than before. From idle to redline, its completely changed. No rasp. A small amount of drone in high gear low rpm

    It has a low deep rumble at idle, nice tone while cruising and the best part...at WOT it doesnt even sound like a 1GR anymore. It has this exotic sound to it. Im not joking...it's perfect.

    I will try and get a video clip today if not sometime this week.

    the best way to show you is with pictures...

    the dyno max super turbo is shaped like an S inside.

    Where as the Magnaflow is straight through design... see pics on page one


    Should have video tomorrow. Hopefully my camera will be able to pick up the sound.:top:
