Doug Thorley Pipe Bomb

Is any one running one of these with the long tubes and cat back exhaust. Is it worth the $300 and is there any rasp?

Not 100% sure but from my background knowledge with the Doug Thorley products the pipe-bomb will make your truck louder, more responsive, and you should see a bit more power from it.

Combining the long tubes with the pipe bomb will eliminate all four of your cats making your truck A LOT louder. Generally this sound is a bit more raspy and has a drone to it.. Its a V6 not a V8.. So its not gona sound as great with an open system. Most people think this setup is too loud and grow out of it rather quickly.

As for performance gains.. Eliminating your cats is going to open your exhaust system up a lot more. You'll notice better throttle response and possibly a bit more power. Most after market y-pipes allow for smoother/increased flow which helps maximize your trucks performance.

Soo is it worth it?? Depends, I'd say if you don't mind the loud raspy sound then go for it. You can always try different mufflers to tweak the sound to how you'd like it to be. If not then don't..

Personally, It was too loud for me. I saw more gains with the long tubes vs the pipe bomb so i opt'd to keep the DT headers and sell off the DT pipe bomb. I'm rather happy with how it all turned out. I've got the DT Headers, Stock Y-pipe, Magnaflow Muffler, and the trd CAI. Which all turns out to be a rather good sounding system.

Hope this helped a bit. I'd say just go for what you think you'll like. Your first gut reaction is normally your best. ~Zoggs

The pipe-bomb only costs about $300 so it is significantly cheaper then the LT headers. I run the pipe-bomb and I love it. My gas mileage is way better as well as throttle response. Also for you offroaders it gains more ground clearence becase the stock y pipe dips down under the frame.

Exclamation Do not do it:

I repeat...

Do Not Do it.

That thing sounds like crap paired with the DTLT headers right around 3000rpm. And this aint your normal Rasp. Go with URD Y-pipe and a second muffler, or just stay stock.

Not sure how you eliminated the rasp, maybe because you are running a full 3" catback via the monster exhaust.

On a side note, Your exhaust sounds awesome. very deep growl. I will be running that same set up soon minus the Pipebomb. Cant wait, now that Ive heard your setup.

Laters....

while i was debating purchasing the pipe bomb i was asking around alot about it and got that it would sound raspy alot! i had a short conversation with xrunnit and he informed me the raspy sound comes from the dtlt headers because of their design? so i figured i would at least try the setup and if i didnt like it i could just sell the pipebomb but now with these new style dtlt out i might reconsider my whole setup. that damn s/c opens up a whole new world of mods

Ha ha... yeah I feel your pain. My TRD SC is going in august, and I already plan on purchasing the new headers even though I already have the originals. But hey, I bet my originals will sell super quick, LOL...

Ejoy the Mod Bug, I am

Yep, you can run the URD ypipe (or any other catless y-pipe) with most any other catback and not have an ounce of rasp.

Of all the systems that I have heard that have rasp issues, all have the DTLT.

I picked up a slightly used one and am awaiting the gaskets from URD.
I want to keep all the cats and exhaust manifolds.
Just looking for a bit better transition to the TRD catback.
The extra clearance will be nice too.

Gaskets should be here tomorrow
