8v92 Exaust
« on: July 28, 2011, 06:41:24 AM »
Found a really good piece of truck chrome or stainless stacks around this truck shop.
Thinking about getting rid of muffler and strait piping, what you think Clifford.

That is your call cowboy, I had bought a Aero muffler for the bus but never got around to installing it and sold it to Wayne 3 or 4 years ago going to be a little loud with a straight pipe I would think 

good luck

I think the Aero would be alright I buy those from a pickup after market place in Houston forgot the name but they weren't all that bad on the prices for Aero lol anything is going to be cheaper than the muffler that is there now I passed out when I got the bill for that one years ago 

good luck

my buddy has a 4905 w/ 6v92 straight piped. It is way too loud. Can't even hear yourself think. Sounds good from the cockpit with the door shut though. lol.
Some are called, some are sent, some just got up and went.

Is it just me?  That didn't sound all that bad.

I was thrown out of bed, literally, one morning when the 8V92 next to me left the park.  That thing must have had an amplifier hooked up to it I kid you not.  He lit'er off and was moving in the same breath and gone in seconds.  Must have been sitting there with the block heater on for a couple hours to get that kind of performance from a fresh start engine.  Now had he sat there and gunned the engine for a few minutes I might still be serving time.

That video does not do the sound justice, you would had to be there to really enjoy it. You could hear him for quite a while. He was quite an engineer and friendly guy.
