i decided to go with straight pipes since the flowmaster 40 wont cut it anymore for me... i will have the clips later tonight but here is the description of the set up...

basically right after the catalytic converter on the passenger side, i added a 3" pipe going to the side exit (passenger rear door)... will have pics and videos later

this setup is not for the one with families for you will have your kids will cry... the sound is so mean but not as loud as other trucs w/o mufflers... its loud but not obnoxious loud... basically im happy with it...
 
I went the straight pipe route. That lasted about a week. The resonance made my whole interior buzz. So I went the flowmaster route.  Love the sound, and no more buzz.

I've heard a AV with cats and straight dual out the back.  It sounded very aggressive but I was shocked that it wasn't any louder than it was at idle and easy throttle.  When he got on it, it was a different story.

If you want to hear loud, I can open my cutout and dump it straight off the headers (no cats).

 
while we are on that subject... you said you dont have cats... what happened to them? do you still have them? one of my cats is going bad and rattling when cold starts... you willing to sell them?

I've never heard a 8.1 with straight pipes.  I'm guessing that it's a very deep sound.

 
ok question :)  how did you get around the cats with out setting the check engine light? did you find a simulator for the cat? or ???? darn it i want just straight pipes from the headers back, but i was told that i wouldnt be able to find the simulator for my truck. .
2002, 2500, 8. 1
