I got the sound I was looking for!
I have been running the Thunderbolt exhaust on my truck now for about 5,000 miles. It didn't sound as good to me as I hoped it would. I know alot of you out there have it and like it, thats OK, I just wanted alittle more. If anything at certain rpm's it made a funny sound that I can't explain and didn't like.
Anyway, took it to the muffler shop today and had the muffler removed, installed a y-pipe and hooked up the dail tailpipes. It sounds sweet. It has that louder low rpm growl that I was looking for while staying about the same loudness going down the hyway. It has that burble that makes you think it has a V-8. Loss of low-end power? I could not tell any seat-of-the pants. I can still spin the rears from a stand still just like before.
Lets put it this way.....my co-workers with V-8 trucks and whopped-up diesels all with exhaust systems liked it. Finally, a little respect.
FYI...if you are looking into doing a custom setup, my muffler is for sale.
