FYI new muffler+dumped added torque!!!

i really wanted to add this so if anyone searches they would know...

i cut the huge stock muffler off, put a wicked flow 13" muffler on, then put a turn down right after it. drives like a beast compared to what it did with the stock and all the piping. it takes off like i actually added horsepower to it. low end torque is great now.

I did the same thing but with a Flowmaster Super44. I'm looking in to different options because I feel like I lost some low end torque, not much but for me to feel a difference. How does your badboy sound? Is there a lot of drone in the cabin?

The sound is making you think the truck is faster but more than likely it is slower now.

The butt dyno isn't the most accurate

Anything that doesn't change anything above the cats shouldn't affect your low end at all, really.

You guys can add your 100 octane and dumper mufflers but the reality is this trucks are slow heavy turds. Just enjoy them for what they are...good looking reliable trucks.

Different cars for different purposes. Truck is a good play vehicle. Want speed? Get a sports car. Econo-box for daily driving.

Damn you guys want to argue everything, I'm not ignorant. I KNOW it gained low end torque. It picks up way better.

And yes I know this isn't a fast vehicle. I'm not trying to make it "fast". This is why I have a 12 second mach 1 mustang. And a civic. One for each of my driving.

The drone isn't bad, sound isn't ideally what I wanted but I like it.
