Re: Thinking Stacks

Who told you that you'll loose bottom end? They must be smoking crack!
Some people say the truck runs slightly cooler with a stack(s) because heat rises. If anything else you'll at least look more powerful but you won't loose any power.

Well there's the problem right there!
Never seen any turbo lag just due to stacks.
My homemade T pipe has 3.5" for the up pipe & has some back pressure but I don't have a turbo so my engine runs more like a gasser in some ways. But if you have ever seen Dockboy's setup his is just a square T pipe & he was pushing some power.

If you welded a 5" up pipe in there instead of 3.5" I know it would work alittle better too.

Still hard to beat Grand Rocks kit for ease of use & construction & free flow.

Oh SNAP, I wasn't counting broken trucks.
Sorry to see you just yourself on that one. Trust me I know the feeling of a broke truck too.
