Default Huh? I CANT HEAR YOU!

I had to take a spare truck at work today. Mine is getting inspected. The spare has a 6 liter Cummins diesel. The mechanic who gave me this truck must have forgot that the downpipe was missing. This engine is unbelievably loud with no exhaust, and because of no back pressure I had to be at WOT to accelerate. The turbo screams like this though. Its so loud that I couldn't hear the radio at full blast. The looks I was getting today lol. For the record, the truck looks like this.

It is crusty, its probably our most beat up truck. I said goodbye to it tonight though, back to my freshly power washed inside and out truck with a 5.0 Mercedes clean diesel. Smaller, more efficient, more powerful, and last but not least, quiet!

agreed, trust me. I drive a lot, it is cool to sound good, but its cooler when you can hear yourself at the end of the day, or fart and know that you actually did, that it wasn't the truck shaking lol

I had to pick up a food order for the hotel the other day...A semi driver pulled in and dropped off his truck, when he left in his personal vehichle. It was twice as loud as his big rig...It was a lifted dodge....That thing was too loud, I could hear it almost 100yards away over my radio and he wasnt even getting on it.

As much as I agree with you guys about loud trucks being gay, I love romping on my Chevy and everything being drowned out by the exhaust. Of course, that's a rare occasion
