I can't imagine what you and your family are going through but I share the same sentiment as the guys that have posted before me. Fight for yourself, fight for your loved ones and I pray you can beat the odds.
I'm sure i could but I am fairly particular about having work done on my truck and if you are spending a lot of money on an exhaust system, you shouldn't have to take it somewhere to spend more money. The biggest disappointment is that the sound clips on Magnaflow's web site are misleading and I can guarantee that they are not from their current version of exhaust systems. This guy has the same issue as I do.
They are sending me the new section with the muffler but it sounds like it will still have a flapper valve. I'm hoping they found one without the flapper, per my request but I'll see what happens. I did end up finding another guy that posted up a video with the same noise and he just clamped open the valve. Seems like a poor fix for an $800 exhaust system.
So I just picked up a Magnaflow exhaust system (15267) and as much as I like Magnaflow, I was really bummed out to find that they have added a flapper valve to their newest model of this exhaust. I don't know who runs their R&D but the new version makes a ridiculous whirling noise when you give it more than half throttle. I just tuned my truck to correct the speedo, shift points and disable the DOD so this flapper is the last thing I needed.
I have them on my truck and they produce a lot of noise but other than that they have great traction in dry conditions and fair to good traction in the rain. The shop didn't load up the wheel with weights so balancing seems to be good. I do like the look of them on the truck, they are very similar to the Toyo M/T but with a different shoulder blocking.
That looks great! How much would this cost installed at your shop?
The hose shouldn't be pinched like that and I would look into the wiring a little bit more to make sure they don't have too much stress on the connector. It also looks like there are a lot of zip ties where I wouldn't expect on the factory harness. It sill seems like a cool truck but I would do a little more research. Have you checked into the company that did all of the aftermarket work?
