    my neighbor complains that my truck is to loud. i have a 350 with headers, and dual 2.25" pipes with dynomax turbos, no cats or tailpipes. it is kinda loud but its not what I call loud by anymeans! lol..this lady is like 70 something years old. and has no life. so my dad says well im going to put quiter mufflers and tailpipes on there. tailpipes ill go for but not some cheap "sound solution" mufflers. well this mourning i glance at my truck getting in the car..(grounded from truck for a week) and see part of my exhaust sitting in front of the garage. wtf!? i look under there and everything is gone but for the headers..guess my dad took it upon himself to change it! man i have no friggen control over my truck at all! i was not happy. whats a truck with out it being nice and loud. maybe im still a kid and think like a kid but that still ticks me of! sorry just had to vent!

    did you pay for the truck or did he?

    are they your neighbors or his?

    who will get the disturbance tickets?

    who has to live there after you move out?

    Actually, I like a quiet exhaust on the trail...you can actually hear yourself think. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Hahahaha Aint that the truth! I'm in the same boat. I was about to rip the flow masters off the 79 before we decided to sell it because "it was too loud". /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    That sucks dude why don't you get you some nice 50 series flowmasters and tailpipes out the back it'll sound better than turbos and won't be as loud at idle just don't get after it till you get away from the house that way you'll keep the neighbors and your dad happy being young is tough man good luck

    Also you should go to 2-1/2" pipe that'll give you a deeper more aggresive sound not just loud and raspy like 2-1/4 " pipes do /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    I know how you feel. When I lived with my parents I had a 75 Firebird with headers and header glasspacks. It would rattle my neighbors windows. They complained like crazy and my parents begged me to put a quieter exhaust on it. Never did though. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    cant beat what you are (16). go playing and say you busted it when you get ungrounded. drill holes in it and comprimise for now till you do get control.

    You may have paid for the truck, and may pay for everything that goes into it, but you still live at your parents' house. The neighbors are not just yours, they are neighbors of your parents as well. When you have your own crib, feel free to piss off everybody. Until then, I assume the addage 'my house, my rules' applies.

    <font color="green"> Yellow, you got a real thing for large diameter exhaust pipe, don't you? 3" duals is so much more flow than a smallblock needs, he'd be killing the low end torque in it. Unless it's seriously worked and a high RPM engnine, 2.25 is really the best way to go for duals. 2.5 will work, but it's not neccessary for a torque motor, just for one that you wrap out to 5k+ RPM on a regular basis.</font>

    How do you know nobody complains about him? And the point still is, this dude doesn't live at YOUR house, under YOUR FATHER'S rules. Why are you so worried about everyone else? Your parents laid down the law, deal with it.
