I know a few guys that run a open downpipe. Only concern....run some kind of a turndown tip on it to keep heat off the tranny and everything else. Other than that, they all love it. I have noe had the chance to hear one with a open downpipe....what's it sound like? How loud over stock is it??????

I had mine with just and open down pipe for a few weeks, but it was extremely loud in my cab so I cut the rear 90 off my stock exhaust and welded it on to the down pipe. Now its just loud to everyone standing to the right of my truck

No problems, though I didnt have a turn down and my TFT's were high all the time.

2004 F-250 Crew-cab XL 2wd 83000 miles . 4" straight pipe.

10/97 F-250, 180k on the clock, 4.10 gears, Autometer gauges,DIY intake, 3.5" down pipe to 4" straight , ATS 6 position chip, 37" BFG Baja T/A's and 24 bolt Hummer H1 wheels. 1 ton axles and custom suspension.

my buddy has a OBS with only a downpipe and as 250 said... you couldn't hear yourself think inside that thing! it would give even a guy that loves loud pipes a headache on a long trip
