Straight pipes

15 posts in this topic

Have duals with a glasspack in it, but I decided I'm going to go straight with my pipes this weekend. I have a 99' halfton Silverado.

Anyone else go straight with their pipes on a Silverado? Though loud, I hear it has a nice tone..

Straits are going to be LOUD! My buddy has a 98 with straits and he loves it but imo it is way too loud. Your neighbors are going to hate you!

Do what you want, but keep in mind that nothing you put on will outlast the original equipment exhaust, and it will cause drivibility concerns. Your particular model has an O2 sensor before and after the converter. Removing the cat will cause the check engine light to come on because pre and post O2 readings will not be correct. This will in turn cause a change in the fuel mixture resulting in several other issues. All in all it wont be worth the extra noise, and you will more than likely lose mileage.

Not to mention it is against federal law to remove a catalytic converter, and selling it becomes an issue too.

I just hate it when my neighbor comes and goes in the middle of the night. He does not even live that close. Straights will be very LOUD, might get pulled over for loud exhaust in some towns.

All straight pipes are is noise polution. Keep what you have and let us all enjoy some peace and quiet. Oh and some sleep.

I used to like the sound of glass packs, but I don't like to listen to them all the time. I was a little more inclined to have glass packs etc in my youth, but some where along the line I out grew that phase.

I would reccomend a set of truck nuts and a "No Fear" sticker to go with the pipes. They all serve the same pupose.

I had done the same thing to mine in my younger years cause I didn't want to buy glasspacks again and it took me less than 2 weeks to get pulled over. Funny thing was I had my new mufflers in the back seat because it was way too loud for me. Sounded nice but I didn't need that kind of attention.

dont get me wrong straights sounds sweet. but like that guy said before they screw with ur O2 sensor not to mention you dont have any back pressure going to the motor so u will acually be loosing power. if u put two high flow cats and a X pipe it will be really loud when u rap on it but when the cops drive by u can take it easy and not get a ticket.

Well...mine's a 94 and a LeSabre, but it runs great and is nice and quiet. wink

BTW, I put aftermarket single 3" on my K-1500 and it added a nice, low/mellow rumbly tone not much louder than stock.

Why do you want such a loud exhaust anyway? Seems all it really does is draw attention and that's the least thing I want when I'm out beatin' around.

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.   
    • If this is your carb # 6 is the drain screw   http://www.marineengine.com/parts/yamaha-outboard-parts/1997/30/30ELHV/620301630004
    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
