air silencer

does the air silencer removal mod change the way the truck sounds significantly? i do have a flowmaster 40 series duals on.. but would it make it any louder, deeper? any information would be good. (sound clips would be awesome too )

might make your imagination think its louder...but in reality it doesnt do a whole lot

a cold air intake makes the difference your looking for

I don't think it will change your exhaust note, but you'll hear the intake now at wide open throttle. It's pretty loud too.

No, it will not noticeably change the sound or performance. You might scrape up your fingers though.
