    Just tought I would share /forums/images/icons/grin.gif The shop did a great job.When I dropped it off I told him that I wanted every thing tucked up as high as he could and to run it all the way to the back.

    My only bitch about the whole setup is that its too quiet /forums/images/icons/grin.gif It sounds cool but having so much pipe after the 2 chambers realy tones them down.

    I have a feeling the exhaust will get louder with weeks to come. When you add all new or any new piping to exhaust it has to go through a sort of break in period where deposits will acumulate where ever and everything sort of sets into place. When I first installed my two chamber although it had already been run on another truck for a few months sounded much different when I first put pipes on it...and today it sounds much different thanit did the day the pipes were first put on. Make sense? Looks nice! I am doing my exhaust in the next week or two finally that gives me some ideas.

    Got one of Jesse's One Ton slip yoke CV's on there I see /forums/images/icons/grin.gif. That exhaust routing looks good /forums/images/icons/smile.gif.

    My exhaust is routed exactly like that except my tailpipes turn out towards the side of the truck at about an 80 degree angle from behind the shackle hanger. I also have 2 chamber flows and headers and I agree with that much pipe it is very quiet for the type of mufflers I have.
    I had a shorter version of duals before with 3 chamber flow's and it was actually louder...the 3 1/2" tips probably had a lot to do with that.

    The sound is changing a little already.Its sounding better.The guy who did it does alot of street rods and custom stuff so this was easy stuff for him to get it all tucked up in there.

    Dunno how long its gonna stay looking pretty,guess it all depends on how much mud is in the tank trap /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Duke,for 1 muffler and all new pipe it was $375.The one Flowmaster that was already on the truck was still in good shape so we reused it .Thats why I only bought 1 /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
