I was just thinking about it the other day... what if i made a custom exahust for my sled... one pipe off the tuned pipe, then into a dual out 80 series muffler, mounted to the underside of the bulkhead. Now i know that there are flaws with it all, i mean the muffler would need a shield to keep the snow moving under the sled, and the possibility of damage would be HUGE, not to mention the dual pipes on the underside of the running boards. I am aware of the noise laws also, this would be a "race" style set up and just to see if it could be done. What are your opinions on this? what do you think it would sound like... louder, quieter? better performance? worse?

I'm thinking that SOMEONE really needs some snow. Can't imagine that it would sound good at all. Have you ever heard Flows on a V6? There used to be a guy in my neighborhood had some series or another on his Dakota, that was MAJORLY annoying. . . .

If you like adding weight to your sled go for it. I dont think you will get the 60s muscle car sound flowmaster claims,lol.

All V6s sound like pissed off washing machines anyways.
As for the sled, go to the store and get some 1 1/4 EMT and make your duel pipes without a muffler. Flowmasters not only cost $75+ but like said its heavy.

I wouldn't go that far. I'll agree most do sound that way. But I have heard some mean V6 engines in my days. Just about any Buick GNX with a performance exhaust comes to mind. [:D]

I think instead of wasting the time and money, you just make 2 pipes that come straight out of the engine and up through the center of the cowl.[:p]

JK that would be way too loud [:D]

hmm ya is this a joke?? First of all the sled would probly not run properly because it would have the correct back preasure. Pipes are made specifiacally for a sled to maintain back preasure to the engine, having one long pipe going to the back of the sled is gonna make u loose that. Just a stupid idea.... and by the time your done it woulda been cheaper going on ebay and finding some used pipes for hafl the price.

Ya, you do need more snow.

If you do this, you will certainly gain weight and most likely lose power.
If you do this anyway for the fun of it, be careful to not melt down your motor as pipes have a direct bearing on the jetting that you need to run.

IF I were to try something like this,
I guess I'd have to look at running the sled pipe and replacing the can with a short Cherry Bomb glass pack or something similar.
But then that little voice inside asks WHY?

More snow should help this out of your head. lol
