Everything all mocked up ready to weld. Sounds pretty good. Not too loud I don't think. The bigger magnaflos are fairly quiet until you get on it. I'll know more after I get it welded up and drive it some.

The wire loom at the cross member is a little close. I may reroute that or put some heat wrap on it. I might also weld some nicer hanger rods and not use the clamps. I'm going to weld in two oxygen sensor bungs right behind the V-bands in the 12 o'clock straight up position.

You did a nice job on the exhaust! The shine on your truck makes me envious, you can really see how nice your paint is in the video!

Thanks, It's fairly dirty now. Lots if garage dust. I'm going to strip it down, level everything then ceramic coat it. There's only a couple very minor places in the paint that are not perfect. Even inside the bed.

you would never think this was a NJ truck. Ralph did a great job of taking care of this truck. I don't think it's even seen much rain.

Sound From inside the truck.

Yea man, looks and sounds good. You’ll have to let us know if you get any interior drone out of it when cruising.

Decided to just use clamps I had around and do some driving before I weld this all up. Mostly to make sure there's no drone. I that on the red truck horrible at one time. So far no exhaust tips either.

I also had to modify the new antique front tag a little. They come completely square and will not fit the front plate holder at all. I think the Virginia antique plate looks good on a black truck.

I do have a check engine light. Apparently that plug I ordered didn't work. But I'll remedy that with a pimpxshift hopefully by late spring.

So what's your overall opinion? You never really can tell a lot by a video.

It's amazing how much difference muffler choice makes on these trucks. At one time my '95 was so loud that you couldn't have a conversation in it on the highway (which is what prompted me to go turbo). I remember Dan Murney's nearly-stock '94 as being even louder. He would wear ear plugs daily driving it.

I like it a lot. At part throttle it's fairly quiet not too bad at all. It's not near as loud as I thought it would be. I think I'm going to live with it a while. It is real loud when you get on it but until then not bad all.
