Fixed up exhaust on our 2001 cummins

So we finally fixed up the exhaust on our 2001 dodge ram 24v cummins diesel. We removed the big muffler and left the resonator on and it now it sounds pretty good. It's actually pretty quiet inside the cab. When we pulled a trailer with 1 horse in it, it got at a good sound level. What do you think? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stdyb...e=channel_page I wish it was completely straight piped but it isn't. How much louder would it be straight piped anyways...?

Doesnt sound to bad...If you take off the resanator it'll sound much better...and if you get something bigger it'll sound even better...my 4" still has the muffler on it and i couldnt ask for a better sound, shes loud, and the drone is exactly what i want...

I did want the resonator off too, but then it would be loud. It's a daily driver for mom and she wouldn't want to be heard a mile away i'm sure haha.

It sounds pretty good for what we did to it. We also picked up 2 mpg.
