dual 40 series!!!low back pressure????
aloha everyone!! so recent upgrades include a set of hooker comp headers and dual flowmaster 40 series exhaust! all of this on a stock 305... the truck sounds good at idle, but get on the gas a little and it sounds like a train coming through! but at the same time, it feels as though it lost some power on the low end, the truck makes a whole hell of a lot of noise, but doesnt seem like its moving the way it should. any ideas??? did i go too big on the exhaust??? thanks!!!

Did you run the exhaust all the way out. Also what gears do you have in the truck. You cant expect a 305 to just blow the doors off. You may not be getting as much air in as you a pushing out. I suggest getting a cai.08 silverado

the gears are stock gears, not too sure of the ratio... i have a k&n airfilter in it...did you change the gears in yours? i was thinking of doing the gears, but not sure what to get... i know i want to change it to a posi, but for the ratio, maybe a 383??

i have the same problem, you need to google about BACKPRESSURE and read up on that. im not going to try and explain it but it can have some negative effects on torque when you change the exhaust from stock, depending on how its done.Scott-Mississippi

Are your headers shortys or long tube? How big of pipes did your run and how was the exhaust set up?99 K1500 Suburban LT "THE BEAST"

the headers are full length, the pipe is a 3" up and over the rear end not quite a 45 to the tips. but it is a true dual. from the headers, both individual pipes run to the passenger side of the truck, then straight back. right behind the tail gate, the pipes split to 45s then down. does this make sense??
