In response to the straight pipe, hated the monster exhaust system that I had on the bus. Ran a 5 inch pipe off the trubo flange to exit the drivers side through the bumperett. That way I can see the exhaust amount,color and hear the jake! Its louder but not too bad.I mean you are 40 ft away from the motor.

I also used Darby once and was not satisfied.  It is hard to find anyone in the DFW area.  I would also be interested in the guy from Tyler.
