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.

    • well factor in cost of living and its a wash
    • Same ol story. The Liberals cant handle defeat. Like when Gore lost and Kerry lost. They just cant handle that there are people outside of NY and California and that they own guns, drive pick ups and vote.
    • My brother-in-law is serious about his whiskey, and he usually drinks either Crown or Pendleton.  My wife has drank Windsor for years.     Can't stand the stuff myself - probably got sick from overloading on it in my younger days.  Strictly beer for me - preferably a good craft beer, but normally Grain Belt or Schell's if it's available.    
    • Their, there. I was.  Not overly excited by anything I saw. Did get to shoot the Gearhead bow and was fairly impressed. Some uniqueness to this bow, and completely reversible right to left so dealers should like that as far as reduced inventory they must carry.  And the lightest crossbow out there. The new Halon shoots extremely well but like its predecessor just too heavy for my taste.  The Bowtech Reign felt pretty good, but again nothing special.  Everyone makes a roto molded cooler, trail camera, and broadhead nowdays. Liked the cast aluminum tree stands from Rivers Edge at a better price point than others.  Hawk is making some neat treestands and accessories. Goldtip was doing a demo bending their arrows vs other brands and was quite amazing how much farther theirs would bend before breaking, and how much their arrow recovered (would not take a set) after bending vs the other brands. I might switch just because of the durability and straightness factor. Got to hold the new world record Tennessee non-typ.  That's a lot of horn.
    • Therefore, if there is no point in making a point, that makes it a moot post to make a point that there is no point. so I'd like to point out that I find this entire dialogue pointless.    Sillytown has run amuck. 
    • Ayup. They asked me to take his place, but I can't stand Rawlings.    http://www.gasmonkeygarage.com/yes-aaron-the-bearded-wonder-is-leaving-gas-monkey-garage/
    • That does look like a fun day!
