On cool mornings entering campgrounds I've had folks walk by and say "I heard your rig coimng in, it must have a healthy engine"...my reply is...the engine likes cool air.

After all the years with my fathers love for the track and then his love of the Cummins in his Dodges I can honestly say I've got the same affliction. If you pull by someone and they don't notice a healthy exhaust note then something is wrong. Even though Dad passed away 2 months after I sold his last Dodge, and just one month after buying the 8.3L (which came wrapped in a Safari) the muffler on it only lasted about 6 months. It definitely helped the turbo spool quicker too.

Good for you Curt! See if you can spread the affliction a little more. Way to represent!

Its funny how you get to like the bark of a good engine.
I have a BMC here and i was looking at the engine,first thing i said to myself was "that muffler needs to go!"
This BMC has the stock muffler,restrictive and heavy and the pipe is maybe 3''.
Too bad it all looks in great shape!

I'll stop over at the local Radio Shack and get a meter. Another Q event..everyone, get your straight pipe done before Q and be ready for the dB(c) Q event.
Radio Shack Sound Level Meter in hand.

That little meter is quite handy. When I originally bought mine, it was for my home theater. Since then, I've found all kinds of little uses for it periodically.

I'm curious to hear what kind of db these straight pipes end up being!
