Re: muffler delete pipe for stock exhaust
I went to 2 different shops today to see about having this done, so far both refused to do it. First shop claimed that by decreasing the back pressure I would loose power and the only way to go is a 4" Bully Dog exhaust. Second shop said that by removing the muffler it will decrease the back pressure. The drop in back pressure would really mess up the computer, destroy the computer and cause me to have major problems.
I though that back pressure didn't matter with the turbo diesels, if anything the less pressure the better. Am I right in that thinking?
Has anyone notice a decrease in power or a check engine light or anything to confirm either one of these stories?
