Muffler tips

Just curious on what would happen if I took off the two ends of the mufflers. It looks waaaay newer than the rest. Thanks!

Re: Muffler tips

Your exhaust has a lot of moisture in it, and if you idle a lot, that moist air gets trapped under the bad. Also, if your cab isn't fully sealed, the exhaust that's not being ported out from under the truck will find themselves in the people tank. The outlet of my "mufflers" (my wife calls them something else) extends over the rear axle and ends right about where the spare tire would mount.

Re: Muffler tips

Ok so best leave it alone! I tend to find myself trying to do little things to my truck for the sake of working on it haha. I'm in no way experienced in anything but I try to learn my truck!

Re: Muffler tips

Personally, I'd stick with them for the time being. Down the line, you might consider jumping up a size on your pipes.

Re: Muffler tips

I was thinking 3" flow master when I have the money. Its like $350 to get it done. Not sure though if I want to stick with dual exhaust or not

Re: Muffler tips

Makes for a little better efficiency, particularly if you have free flowing headers.

Re: Muffler tips

To have single exhaust or dual? I really want headers but I need to get other parts too. I'll just save my pennies!

Re: Muffler tips

Dual. The easier it is to pass air from the air cleaner to the end of the exhaust pipe through the engine, the better your performance.

Re: Muffler tips

Thanks! I like the dual better too but I was considering keeping single because that's what the guy at the shop recommended. He said it doesn't really make a difference either way but I'll stick with dual anyway.
