Exhaust Bypass Valves? Idea for a new product. I need more Exhaust Noise

This may offend some people, my apologies in advance if it does and I encourage the moderators to remove this post if I'm off base here. It is not my intent to be so. But I'm a concerned with something at the moment and had an idea to help curb, if not vent, my frustrations.

It happened again. Pulling up to a stop light yesterday I have the individual beside me sharing his "music." Now, I like most music, country, rock, pop, classical, jazz, etc. But I do not like boom boom, heavy bass, with "lets rattle the neighborhood" high wattage speakers. I appreciate that some people have invested thousands of dollars to wedge a sound system into the trunk of a $500 rust bucket who’s main value rest in a set of $2000 hub caps. But could they show us how proud they are of this sound system without vibrating the earth with rap music? Then I thought, I'm wrong. I should join in and accept and be understanding, if not a part of this new culture.

So, as a peaceful way to share how proud I am of my investment (namely my 6.0 diesel engine) and knowing how much some people enjoy loud "music." I thought it would be nice to have an exhaust bypass. That is, a solenoid controlled valve of some sort that would deflect the exhaust of my engine away from the mufflers to the side of the truck. This way, I'd be able to bring something to the party, sort of speak. I mean, take a 6.0 liter V-8 diesel engine with straight pipes, and when someone at a stop light starts rattling the change in my cup holder with their "music" I could join the fun and share some music of my own. After all, what’s better sounding than the popping roar of pure diesel engine revved up and loud? Besides, it’d give me something to do with those accessory switches I have on the dash!

It’s just a thought. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Ummm, a pair of Grover Stutterhorns? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Mount two under the truck (one pointing port, one starboard). Individually activated. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smokin.gif[/img]

That'll effectively combat (c)rap music.

I love the sound of Grovers in the mornin [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif[/img]

Re: Exhaust Bypass Valves? Idea for a new product. I need more Exhaust Noise

LOL, let's let Grover "share the love of music" LOL!

It's not that I haven't listenend to (c)rap music. I've listened to a lot of it...as I said, most of my listening has been done at various stop lights in and around the city. I've determined, and fairly so, that I do not like it.

I found a site that sells the Grover Sutters online. I think a music loving person, like myself, should share a train horn. Besides, we all love trains, don't we? I mean, I grew up playing with Lionels' and had a great time with them. Now All I have to do is find a good place the mount the compressor and route the 1/2 inch air lines my favorite set of horns would require [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] hehehehehehehehee

You haven't invented a new product. Dump pipes were popular 40-50 years ago.

YEAH! I knew I came to the right place! Heck, I don't even have to get my welder out. It's already done for me! If only these guys would market these horns and dumps as a musical device for when you want to join in on the stop light (c)rap fest!
