Max Power-


I didn't notice that it states 1999-2002. In the "big book" I just received it states 2001-2003. Hopefully the book is correct and it is just a misprint on the website.
I'll try different wording for the search on this site, as I found nothing on my initial tries.

3-Fan and CS-Dmax,


Thanks for the input. That is my main concern, too much noise. Already have aproval from the wife to buy it, but got cold feet not knowing how loud it was... If the wife ain't happy, no one is!!


Add $31 for a stainless steel polished tip and I got a budget 4" exhaust system!!


Now to do some more searching...

Ox-


Thanks for the info. Just got the Summit System installed over the weekend. The hardest part definitely was getting the old system out without cutting. Wanted the ability to put the stock exhaust back on if I was unhappy with the system. The only real problem I am having is trying to get clearance for the shock. I can't seem to position the pipe over the axel so as not to hit the shock or spare tire. Did you have this probem?? If so what did you do to correct it?? I plan on messing with this thing again as it is supposed to hit the 50's tomorrow before the next round of cold weather comes in.. Any help you could give, or anyone for that fact, would be appreciated.

Thanks Ox! That is pretty much what I did as well, fitted everything loose, then tightened up everything. Boy was the tailpipe a bi$%@!! I had to put it up twice as I wanted to figure out where to cut it for the SS tip. Funny how it went up great the first time, but didn't want to cooperate the second time!! Hopefully I can get it resituated tomorrow and away from that shock. Thanks again for the insite.

Too bad you can't make it to the dyno day this Saturday, would be happy to show it off. If anyone else wants to listen to it or a ride, come on down to the dyno day in Denver I will be happy to show it off.

That would be great if you could make it. Would be nice to meet other people in the area and see their trucks. It starts at 10am and is located near I-25 and Tennyson in Denver.

Ox-


Thanks for the info. I wasn't aware that you could move the tip out to help quiet the exhaust on the inside. At this point I am not sure if it is too loud or not. It is definitely quieter than my mustang was, the wife doesn't find the Summit system intrusive either (I guess I can keep it!!). I just think I have been used to quiet exhausts for so long, I don't know what is too loud. Hoping to hear others' trucks with 4" exhaust this weekend to see if this one seems in check. Only downfall is, I can't really move the tip too much further out as I cut the tailpipe so the tip would look nice and clean with no signs of the 4" on the inside. I'll have to look at that. Maybe I'll take the tip off and put on one of the spacers that I didn't need that came with the kit and take it for a ride. I assume there is a certain point where you can keep extending the tip, but not hear a difference???


Instead of welding the tip on, I through bolted it with stainless hardware. Looks like I am glad I did so I can make adjustments!! Speaking of adjustments, I was able to get the tailpipe moved away from the shock!!
Regardless, thanks for the info, you have been very helpfull!! Can't wait to see what this truck puts out on the dyno this weekend!!

Kartattack-


Sorry for the late reply, didn't see this.
About my 4" Summit System. It held up great for the time I had it on the truck. Yeah, I goofed, it was just too darn loud for me.. at around 2,000rpms and up it was just too loud for me, not to mention acceleration, and I feared what it would sound like under load pulling our 10,000lb 5er. It was definitly much louder than stock, but kept trying to tell myself it wasn't that bad and I would get used to it. My ears would clog up on half hour trips as well. I had thoughts about dynomating the inside of the truck, but would cost more than a couple of mufflers. I decided that I would put the stock system back on, as I didn't cut it, and do some research on mufflers and maybe be able to put it back on in the Spring if I could find a quiet one. If not oh well, lesson learned, at least I was only out $300. Probably not what you wanted to hear, but I guess some like the noise, some don't. It sure did sound good on WOT runs, but wasn't practical for the long highway commute to work...

Deadeye,


Welcome to the site!! The dyno day was an event in Denver where they put the trucks on a dyno to measure hp and torque at the wheels. It was a Ford and Dodge event, but they let us come out and play anyway. Not sure when the next one is though....I'd have to check out the powerstroke club site.

Ox-


Thanks for the info, I should have tried that when you mentioned it to me before... I'll give it a try in the Spring when I put it back on.


Jess-


I'm not ready to throw in the towel yet on this system. But I'll let you know what I do with it in the Spring. I have to have a pipe "repaired" as I couldn't break the joint loose and had to cut it. At least I marked it so I know how the cut piece needs to be welded back on to the pipe.
