    I would like to learn more about the Magnaflow systems. From what I can tell looking online Magnaflow is Walker Exhaust high performance line! And may be well engineered like the OEM systems are on many US cars and trucks. Thanks for the experience details.

    Wall thickness, diameter, length, resonators, mufflers, hangers, and overall mass all will effect the exhaust system. I'm going to be needing a new exhaust system at some point and am going to start looking into details of the various manufacturers that make a system for 98.5 to 02 to determine which one might be best for my needs. I'm looking into going with a 4" aftermarket or NEW Walker OEM system. Anyone have experience with the Magnaflow systems? ....................with the Banks systems? ........MBRP? AFE? etc. I think the wall thickness has a huge effect on this drone at various engine RPM. Take a look at the picture Katoom posted earlier in this thread and the difference between the two. Very interesting. Would like ot learn about wall thickness of various aftermarket before making a decision and can always go with Walker OEM to get good quality pipe material.

    As I said, it is very creative!

    I guess so! It certainly is very creative.

    UNDERSTANDABLE! And it is fun too. Have fun, but not too much fun so the local Police and or Sheriff departments don't profit from it along the way.

    Katoom, thank you for the pictures and details.

    hmmm....makes sense. Did you find the 4" exhaust note to be deeper along with the raspy higher tones? And with a resonator the 4" might be the best way to go for overall performance gains and sound quality.
  9. Thank you for the details and let us know how the turbo blanket works out for you.

    When you deleted the muffler, but left the resonator was the sound "raspy" too or just louder? I'm thinking the resonator might reduce the higher frequency sounds that tend to be raspy. It is difficult to communicate all the intangibles of sound and noise levels etc, but raspy is a good way to describe some of the exhaust sounds! I'm still running the stock original exhaust and may have to make some changes soon due to oxidation starting where in the mid-pipe goes into the muffler.....now that is lazy not making any changes for 19 years! Have heard good things about the quality of sound from the FTE mufflers and resonators but have no personal experience, so anything you can share is appreciated and helpful. Thank you.....
  11. Nice work and thanks for the pic! What thickness is the blanket?

    Do you happen to know the manufacturer of the resonator and the length?
  13. I would care to see a photo of how you are using the blanket to keep heat away from the transmission.

    Well the Order is in

    Awesome truck! And simple is the best way to go. I waited 4 1/2 months when I ordered the '99 in my signature! Worth the wait and hope you enjoy your NEW truck for many years and safe miles.
