Re: muffler delete pipe for stock exhaust

I was going to buy this...

http://www.itpdiesel.com/store.php?c...on=show_detail

...but I ended up just going to a local exhaust shop instead. They cut the muffler out, welded a piece of pipe and a couple hangers in its place for $65, all in about 30 minutes.

I went to a local muffler shop also! Like $40, and 30 minutes.

Re: muffler delete pipe for stock exhaust

How does the 6.0 sound with the muffler delete? Is it still easy to hold a conservation over the exhaust? Also does it get annoying on long interstate trips?

Re: muffler delete pipe for stock exhaust

I put one in about a year ago. Since, I have had the truck from PA to Alaska and back. Under normal conditions the change is negligable. But give 'er a little fuel and it sounds great. Especially in a tunnel! At idle my ehaust sounds like a jet engine spooling up. Nothing but the wonderfull sound of a turbo spinning. I ordered mine from some place in the south that made parts for large trucks. I had a few problems installing the pipe. I ended up cutting off the mout aft of the cat and then cutting the exhaust a few inches fore of the cat. I then removed this section-- cut out the cat and welded the new piece to the remaining pipe. I used a clamp to reattach it to the exhaust system. After installation I was unhappy with the play in the system so I welded on a new support. Go for it... it's a cheap change that makes a great difference.

Re: muffler delete pipe for stock exhaust

got torque,
I just took mine in today and cut the muffler off, and left the cat. I find myself wondering why ford even put the muffler on it to begin with. The truck exhaust sounds much more like the truck should sound, in my opinion. It is not obnoxious at all, much like a v8 with free flowing exhaust and a little turbo whine. I do service work out of my truck, and cannot go job to job sounding like ricky rodeo, but find this mod to be a good inexpensive one.

Re: muffler delete pipe for stock exhaust

Does it sound at all like a 7.3 litre with a straight pipe?

Also did you notice any change in the EGT, both empty and towing after the muffler delete?

Re: muffler delete pipe for stock exhaust

Sounds nothing like a 7.3 with a straight pipe. I couldnt take towing with my 7.3 straight and ended up putting it back on. Its not poppy and doesnt drone like the 7.3 did, it has a rumble like a v8 gasser, but much less noisy than 7.3 was. Barely notice the sound in the cab now. My egts have dropped, although I havent towed yet so I dont know exactly how much. Maybee 75-100 degrees. Truck has a slightly more powerful feel, less turbo lag. Itp has a delete kit. Doesnt make any sense why they would not take it off, diesels dont have to have one from my understanding.

Re: muffler delete pipe for stock exhaust

Rutcutter,

I purchased my delete pipe from Auto Jet in Des Moines, Iowa. It cost me about $80.00 and I had to put it on. Nobody around my area, eastern Iowa, had the equipment to bend 3 1/2" pipe. Sounds MUCH nicer!! Very easy to do, just need a reciprocating saw. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: muffler delete pipe for stock exhaust

What's the sound like. Anyone able to attach it to a wave file or something?

I want a little more turbo noise/whine but nothing like the redneck straight pipes every half wit puts on there 1/2 ton's.

More whistle that's all.

Re: muffler delete pipe for stock exhaust

The truck has a little more rumble when you get on the pedal, but is no where near a straight piped 7.3 without the cat. I think that most people get scared because they hear those straight piped Cummins' that sounds god awful if you ask me. The sound is no where near that. Took mine in for tranny and injector recall the other day service guys liked the way it sounded, and had no problem with the mod.

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?
