    I'm wondering if any of you can help me with my idea. I was thinking about completely taking off my exhaust system and getting custom pipes to shoot straight up and out of the hood, like some diesel drag trucks have. Is there anything special I would need to do to do that? And Is there an extremely cheap/easy way to do that? I need to do something cuz i have a hole in my right header,and don't want to spend the $400 to make it sound the same as it does now. I would really like it louder, and it would give it a unique look.

    Any tips? Thanks!

    Here's a great tip DON'T DO THAT!!!! Holy crap that would be like holding your face 2 foot from a open shorty. Even if you run it out the side with straight pipe it would sound better then that. And you need a cross over unless thats a 10.5 truck running a 5,000 stall

    Yeah I don't really know much about the technical stuff yet, so I don't really know what that means, but i don't think my truck is. I guess I could do out the side.

    Look up block huggers headers and imagine that pointing straight up through the hood. And you need a certain amount of bacvk pressure to get low end power.What you have seen is a a race set up that works best at high rpm and is not the best for a daily driver

    oh ok. I guess i don't want the exhaust going back in. I've seen it waste new spark plugs in a week.
