    Exhaust

    This probably already answered some where but not sure how to find it. If I take the muffler of my 03 will it be really loud. Or have a nice tone to it. My 97 powerstroke wait straight piped but not overly loud. Yes I have been gone for a while. Been riding the iron horse most of the summer. I've had baby blue one year back in October and have only put on about 5000 miles. To cold to ride the bike to work so now I get to enjoy her a little more.

    Exhaust

    I went to Ontario yesterday and had the muf removed. I really isn't any louder inside than it was before except at about 1500 rpm@50mph it has a nice rumble to it. I'm satisfied with the results, Thanks for the input . Thanks Muddy for the referral. They did a nice job in a timely manner.

    Exhaust

    It already has the cat gone. It was off when I bought it. I think mine being a short box was my concern for the most part. I like loud if it levels out once your on the road at road speeds. And I figured it would be loud pulling the 5th wheel. Also wish it had the smartie that was on it that I found a recipe for when I bought it.If I use those wide bands ( I think I know what your talking about)If I didn't like it straight I could just put it back on with those clamp or not?

    My Baby is sick

    Ok...My 97 has been running like a $2 whore after a long hard Saturday nite. Managed to get it down to the mechanic yesterday. He ran a scan on it and it had a cam censor error. OK that's only a $30 fix. Went to pick it up tonight and he said it had to other codes. PO344, 470 and 475. He said it still ran rough after changing the cam censor . So he reached up and moved the waste gate a little and it smoothed out. So he checked and said that it has 20 Lbs back pressure at an Idle and should only have 5 or less. Does the waste gate need rebuilt or what. NO I DO NOT WANT TO JUST GUT IT!!!!. Here several months ago when I rewired the EBPV to used as an Exhaust Brake I said on here that it had a whistle. My mechanic said it is coming from the waste gate....Any input. Thank

    My Baby is sick

    I went over to star today and it ran fine until we were headed back. We were on Hwy 16 by Firebird and it started missing. Got home and was messing with it. I couldn't get the WG to move. But wiggled the wires on the passenger valve cover gasket (the one on the rear) and it smoothed out nice. Those have been such a pain in the ass the last 3 yrs. I do how ever think that whistle is from the WG.

    Lock-N-Stitch

    Just watched 5 videos on YouTube by locknstitch....Very interesting..And it doesn't look to hard to do. I was reading some artical on line today that said these cummins blocks can be done inframe. That I amsure would not be done as easy as it would be if it were out of the truck but some of use just don't have the facilities to do so. I think I will check into this further.

    Adopt a highway

    Most Saturdays work for me!
  21. I was looking at the Flex-a-lite electric fans on the net and one site said they were not recomended if combined gross vehicle weight (CGVW) exceeds 18,000 pounds (truck, trailer and load). Any input? My 5th wheel weights in at around 15000 plus my truck.

    Rims

    Looking for a set of 17 inch rims for a 2003 Dodge 2500...

    Rims

    Whats the bolt pattern on the 03 2500? And will others ( Ford Chevy ) fit?

    Rims

    Yup Muddy I found a really nice 03. Went to Missoula to pick it up this past weekend. I will get pic,s here soon. It has 275/65/20 on it now. Tires aren't great and the chrome is pealing off so I thought I would go back down to factory. I think it would improve the mileage and the ride. I have access to some new 265/70/17 ( my ex would be son in law has them and will trade for boot repair) but I need rims. Would like some kinda after markets in black.....but damb their proud of them$$$
