I just reused all the pipe and tips,i took off ,Just make sure before you start that they are not rusted to bad and if so you'll need to buy new clamps,I done my in the driveway it took about 4hr but i was lucky everthing was in good shape, i also removed the catalytic convertor then hook the muffler up there and put the tips on turned it about 22deg from the ground . im coming up on my next fill up.

Anthony, have you gotten the improvements in mpg that you were hoping for?

the big can you left underneath is not a muffler it's a catalytic convertor.exchange it for a muffler or resonator would be better.

Might be better, but it is illegal to remove/modify emissions control systems. Something to think about before you do it.

why is that?

Cause the last time one parked next to me I woke up with headache, dizzy and a truck full flumes.

sorry to hear. that's just an inconsiderate driver. when i know i'll be idling i park on the edge of the row or nose in to the spot because mine comes out on the passenger side and i don't want to be woken up by someone i'm choking out.

Your a rare truck driver most aren't that consider anymore I appreciate it Jerzy thank you

Be sure that the exhaust exits behind the sleeper, not under it. Under the sleeper, or any part of the body would be an OOS violation of the regs.

" removed 14ft of the exhaust and turn it into grass burner "

What EXACTLY did you do?

I am thinking about this. What did you buy? Can I install it myself? What increase in profits did you see?

i did the same thing on my t600. Removed the twin stacks and all the mounting hardware. Installed a high flow muffler worked out great. saved about 75-150 lb at the same time. More power, more boost, more Mpgs.
