Sooo I got a 2004 SCSB Hemi Ram. I bought the truck last year with only 45K miles on it. I fell in love with it. Ive always had trucks, mostly GM trucks except for a 98 dodge with the 318 that I sold. I've always put loud exhaust on all my motorized vehicles... trucks, bikes, ATV's, wifes /suv
, guess you could kinda say its my calling card here in my local area, its what im known for.
So after I got the truck, I put a SI/DO Flowmaster super 44. just cut the factory exhaust off from the right in front of the muffler, removed all of that and welded the flowmaster up in place and just left it open...no pipe after.
Loved the sound. absolutely loved it! Got compliments constantly! Then one dark and gloomy day I got the bright idea to run pipe all the way out the back off the muffler. Had it put on and and it tucked inside the rear bumper and shot down in the corners. Loved the look. Looked real old school muscle car-ish. However, It quietened it down too much for my liking, but after spending $100 on the pipe install, I didn't really wanna just hack it back off. Rode like that for about 6 months.... until today. I live in a county that does not require emissions, figured I'd pull the cats off to try to bring back that deep loud rumble I sooo longed for again. Went to the local Autozone, bought 2 of their little pipe extensions and some non-foulers and got to work. took cats out and extensions welded in place. Done this to all my trucks in the past with fabulous results.
PROBLEM: Now I have this loud popping high pitched straight pipe noise. I know alot of people like the straight piped sound and thats cool. just not for me. I absolutley hate it. Come to find out, welds around the extensions are leaking, paid someone else $50 to try to seal them up, still leaking!
SO... I took the $100 pipe job off the muffler thinking maybe it was from that. Sound got a little deeper but still has the funky straight piped sound. Now my truck sounds like S*!T and my wife is pissed that I jacked up my "perfectly good" truck. Please give me some ideas/feedback on why im getting this ridiculous noise. This is my first post here on this site guys so i really want yall to impress me! LOL And may DTW rest in piece.
