View Full Version : running new exhaust on 83 2.8
07-28-2008, 10:28 PM
so it needs a new exhaust and i am going to be welding one on here maybe this weekend...so i really need to know if anyone has annexed the cat on one of these 2.8's yet? I plan on putting on a flowmaster 40 series single in dual out unless someone has heard it and it sucks or knows a better sounding muffler for it.

Leave the cat on and go for a flow 40. I think it was hahns2b had a flow on his 2.9 without a cat and had friends act like it made their ears bleed cuz it was so loud. I could be wrong though

hm i do like loud though, but it is an 83 2wd pickup not a 4x4...im running the exhaust myself so i guess i will have to leave a spot for it then or get one of random technologies

It will be very loud without a cat, louder than you think, although IMHO a cat really isn't needed on a carbed engine.
Here's my 2.9 with a 40 series and no cat, fast forward to the 4 minute mark, when the camera gets held outside the window you get a good idea how loud it really is.
