    I was just curious if anyone has put flowmasters behind a 6.2 diesel? Did they make a difference? What did they sound like? Just wondering-Russell

    I'v wondered the same thing, asked at my local garage and he sugested first trying some shorter muflers. I dont see any reason we cant get a deeper rumble the same way a gas engine does..
    Maybe someone else will know.

    I freind of mine put a good exhaust on his diesel truck. Nobody believed that it was a diesel when they heard it go by.

    I installed a pair of Rino brand mufflers (the shop told me they have a similar sound to Flowmasters on gas engines) and they sound really good behind the 6.2. I even had some people ask if I had swapped in a 350 engine in to it. Originally it also had some 3.5" by 12" long tips that made it sound even better, a real low rumble.

    russ good question. I have a good buddy with flows on his 6.2 burban....It sounds less "tinny" than it would were it a gas motor. I opted for dynomax mufflers, 2.5 inlet and outlet. If you want a ballzy deep tone, like real deep go with the dynomax I prefer the deep rumble as opposed to high pitched flows. The compression of the diesel really makes it sound sweet...............js
