Ok can't decide if i want to do stacks or not and have a few questions. How do you keep rain out of them? Would the turnout help? How do the stack covers that hide the y fit and the most important question how big is to big. I am thinking 8" would look sweet. If you have any pics of yours or good info on a good complete kit post it up please.

I had a single 6" mitre on my truck. It made a mess, so I don't plan on putting it back on ever. They make stack caps for them that you can put on while your truck is parked. As for when its raining and your driving, or out....BIG MESS. They sound good, but there is a bad drone at certain speeds that would just about give me a headache.

Not sure you can keep the rain out...especially when driving/using your truck.

I have black all over my truck during rain events but other than that it's not too bad. I like the look of 8" but to each their own and I don't have any drone as others have encountered but it is loud when you mash the go pedal.

Cheers,

I have the rain caps on my pipes. Dual 6 inch mitres with the rain flappers. They look good. Ive never had water in them since i put them on. Just condensation build up over cold nights.

I love it!! I drive around with my rear window open all the time:D I don't know how many times I've gone to or from Red Deer(3.5 hours) just listening to my exhaust.

I'm not sure about the 350 tune or Eric's big tune, but the 345 has such a wicked rumble to it! Finally I can say I like the sound of this truck as much as my 6.0.

My buddy had a N14 with 8" straits, no bull the rear window on his daycab 378 would deflect like a subwooferLOLLOL Needless to say he put a muffler under the cab. No way anyone can truck 14 hours and not go insane with that much noise.

Holy chit not that is to much. LOL It had to sound pretty sick tho. But sometimes u need comfort over the sound. I gotta say our day cab western star with the C18 is f'k to loud but they dont care it looks damn good. Just gotta love stacks. Do u like the single over duals? ive been thinkin about switchin over to a single 8 but idk how it will look and sound.

If you are going to race you need a stack so when your turbo blows apart it won't hit the croud. Lol that's what I tell people actually the main reason for stacks is so you do not trip the tree if there is a tail wind during spool up. I would have a hard time giving up the box space for my sled deck etc. Klutch has a sweet single 8 black chrome from powerstroker and it is bad azz

Just to add to this....these trucks don't blow smoke while building boost on the line....at least I can keep mine from blowing any. May be different with bigger turbo's and a lot more fuel, but stock turbo's, injectors, and HPFP, you can definitely keep it clean. I have had Cummins buddies ask if I was even leaving with boost off the line because its so clean until I actually leave the line.
