Cab-drone question

I plan on putting stacks on the truck in my sig. If I were to gut the interior and Dynamat the entire cab and go with 4" straight pipes to 6" stacks would the drone be retardedly insane? Or would I be better off skipping the pain-staking work by just putting a Flowmaster Hushpower muffler on before the stacks and forget the Dynamat? Hell, do they even make a Hushpower for a 7.3L? Too lazy (stupid I know...)

I have watched YouTube videos for weeks on end with stacks and Hushpower, and I just don't know how annoying or loud it will be in the cab on a 350-400 mile highway drive going 75-80 mph.

I just like the way 6" Aussie cut stacks look sooooooo much, but I still wanna talk to people in the cab lol. Any insight is greatly appreciated!

Re: Cab-drone question

on the highway with my single stack,its annoying if I go over 70mph.I enjoy the window down so once I do that,its fine.The droan isonly is bad with the windows up.Its still better then when I had my exhaust comming out in front of the tire.That was actually louder inside.

Re: Cab-drone question

That's a very VERY good answer to my question! I do a lot of traveling from the Minneapolis area to Milwaukee and I like to run at 70-75 mph. I always have a window at least cracked if not down all the way 365 days a year. Keeps me from smoking too many cigarettes (don't ask why it helps, it just does).

Has anyone put Dynamat in their truck with stacks though? Exhaust noise doesn't bother me personally, but I'd like to have a conversation with the cutie in the passenger seat once in awhile!

Re: Cab-drone question

If your think'n about doing sound deading matting at all, I would say just to do it. Even if you don't decide to do stacks. It'll help with the engine noise wind, and or tire noise too. I don't have stacks on my truck, but I did do a 4" turbo back and muffler delete and I got exhaust drone at idle and at 75 mph or so. So when I did the 80 mil FatMat install on my truck in cut down on the noise quite a bit, wind, tire,engine, & exhaust. My stereo sounds much tighter as well.

Stacks or not, sound dampening material is one of the best non-HP related things I've ever seen or heard.

I still can't get over how quiet it is with the windows up.
