i have a 93 f250, and i was wondering if i could make a difference in the sound by cutting off the exhaust afteer it comes out of the muffler, i know the best way to improve sound weould be to cut off infront of the catalytic converter, but that not an option my dad would kick my @$$. so i was wondering if this would work, and if i could run into any problemns if i did it
your just wasting your time imo,because the converters on these trucks are pretty restrictive and just cutting off your tailpipe is kind of dumb and it's not really gonna be any louder.It's just gonna sound like your exhaust rotted off.Even if you cut off the muffler and straight piped it,it would still be quiet.Just depends on what you wanna do and in your case how loud your dad will let you have it.
Honestly bud...I have a 94 F250 with a 5.8....I didn't want to cut the cat off due to the "awesome" emissions here on Long Island NY. So I junked the muffler and did a "Y" after the cat and I have duals coming out on an angle behind the tires. Honestly when I am just driving there is no cab noise and there is just a nice rumble. But as soon as I get my foot into it from a stop you can def. hear it coming haha.
I like Magnaflow. I will never own Flowmaster again. If you have both cats just Y it off the rear cat with duals and no muffler like 94WhiteF250 said. It sounds good. You could also put a glasspack in place of the muffler and that will sound pretty good too since you have the cats.
Bassani 58150B2/58150B3 y-pipes are designed for 5.8L Broncos. They both fit the F-series just fine. One comes with a converter, the other does not. I purchased the 'B2 version so I could install a converter of my choice on my '92 F350 w/5.8L engine. This y-pipe is for those who want a 3" exhaust.
For those looking for something that is more easily adaptable to a stock exhaust Magnaflow makes a direct fit line of converters that also include the y-pipe. The 5.8L version is part no. 93312.
A cheaper way would be to just cut the muffler out and replace that section from the cat to the tailpipe with a piece of pipe. This is cheap and will make it sound good and it keeeps the noise away from the cab. Personally i wouldn't put a glasspack in unless you wanted it to be fairly quiet. The cat will keep it quiet enough.
