water in my stack, lol

so today we had on and off heavy rain storms, went out and started my truck and noticed my truck was quiet compaird to any other day, glowplugs went off and oil PSI was up to normal so i gave her some throttle and this is what i got........





just washed it 2 days ago and cleaned all the windows, lol


what have you guys done to keep water from collecting in the stack? i dont want rain flaps and i have a 1/4" hole drilled in the lowest part of my exhaust but im guessing it got plugged with soot

buy 2 buckets and place over them when it might rain. or put a turn down tip on it to help with the water.

Just drill a 1/4 in hole at the lowest point in your exhaust system. Problem solved.

this is why semis are flared backwards. when i park my semi into the wind and a storm comes up, get the same problem and anve to scrup the whole trailer to get it off. most semis don't have weep holes, thats called an exhaust leak
