Dude, that absolutely wasn't directed at you! Your original post was a legit question, and I replied in kind with civility. This was more to the butt-hurt crowd who seem more worried about what goes on over the fence. Sorry man, should have been more clear

Ah mine happened on a 91 ford so it was a diff setup, ungodly loud plus i still had holes in the floorboard from when i put new seats in. Could barely live with that noise

I bought my Borla Atak catback because it cost a lot of money that is made of high quality stainless steel with mandrel bent pipes yada yada yada that incidentally I have and can afford purely for it's sound I didn't even care if it gave me a performance increase. My truck was never on dyno and never will be.

LOL and your point is? I'm sure I could find something you blow or waste your cash on but the thing is it shouldn't matter it's not your cash.

Did I leave anything out?

Okay. No attacks on Canada. I have met some cool guys from Canada on this forum whose trucks I admire. Just say you don't give a damn what the OP thinks. Thank you. All, let's be good to one another.

40hp from exhaust? That sounds a little high to me...

You wanted to know why & how for me here it is:
I'am 51, For Me it all started in my teenage years, grew up around my Dad's Trucks & heavy equipment Dozers and Graders and then Operating them and loved the loud sound and the power.

At 16 my first Exhaust was my 1972 GMC 1/2ton, we put a 350LT1 in and Hooker Headers & Glass Pack Mufflers which were also called Blue Bottles came in 3 size's and I put my exhaust just in front of the rear wheels It was very loud and sounded great!!!!!!!!!! and I was hooked ever since. Not to mention my Brother in-law owned a Garage and sold Superior Muffler, and everyone I knew my age was getting it done, when I was a kid my Dad had a 56 gmc stepside and had dual side pipe's coming up the back of the cab and it was so cool as a kid. So its been around my whole Life since I was a kid, and I loved the sound on my Muscle cars I had, and my buddies trying to out do each other for sound, at that time putting more bends in the snapper it sounded, not realizing the restriction it caused to some that were doing it with the Bends.

I purly love it for the sound and If I gain any Hp or mpg's so much the better, I love the Rappp it makes
I plan to put on Solo Performance Mach duals out the side's with dual tips, like the low quiet exhaust they have, plus I can put a larger spare under there when Im done. Im running 34" now and plan to go bigger.....

When I was younger I always liked the loud exhaust because it sounded cool but now that I'm older and go on thousand mile road trips I prefer the quietness of stock instead of the constant drone. Wouldn't mind a straight piped weekend warrior, but daily driver, not so much!

Interesting replies.

Many mod because they enjoy the sound.
A couple mod because they want to make a statement to others (which usually is such a fail)
Few care about perf effect.
Some are really angry.
Some have the beer muscle virus.
Some are still justifying ...
Too funny.

I had a magnaflow on my '06. I cared about getting any performance increase out of that weak engine. My boat was basically a 6000+ lb lead weight to that poor truck.

I woke up the neighbors.

Mashing the pedal to hear an exhaust when the plant itself was weak was, well, weak.

I grew to hate the drone - daily work commute is +50 mi one way.

I love the sound of silence with real power on tap.

Any track you say? How's a desert course sound? I'd be willing to bet that my stock FX4 would kick the crap out of your SRT8.
Wait, let me get this straight- you're saying your FX4 will beat his SRT8 Challenger on the race track?????
