The Seattle airport called the admin office receptionist today asking if you have a pilot's license with jet endorsement. :Ugh:
Yeah, it does actually sound a lot different, mainly the intake roar when you get into it. The exhaust itself is is louder than before due the deletion of the back pressure valve in high-flow outlet. You can definitely hear coming and going from blocks away, lol.WOW it sound SO different! I heard them like this in PA. The guys would straight pipe them or stack them and could hear that sound from inside truck!
Thanks man. I wish you were closer and I could give you a ride or let you take it for a spin.Sounds AWESOME, dude! :tango_face_devil:
Ha ha! It almost sounds like a 737 inside the cab. It's not overbearing, but if you have the radio down you can hear it.The Seattle airport called the admin office receptionist today asking if you have a pilot's license with jet endorsement.
Now there's some serious whistle! :tango_face_wink:Hey Austen, they filmed you going out of house other day.....................................
They get good MPGs!All my cars are TDI (turbo diesel) .I am a big fan. I like VW and Audi !
CumminGs?? :tango_face_wink:I also was fan of work Dodge Cummings. The truck not so much. Rough ride and felt cheap.
Ah yes, emissions systems are quite the rabbit hole for these trucks. Sounds like you have a nice truck!I currently drive a 2012 Silverado Duramax long bed crew cab. All stock. 79,000 miles. It's been a great truck. The only issue was the notorious DEF injector and sensor and heater failure. Got all that taken care of under the extended emissions warranty campaign. Also, the truck is going into regen to clean the DPF every 200 miles or so, vs the 450-500 miles I was accustomed to on my previous truck, an 08 Sierra Duramax. It seems that the emissions components are the weakest link on the Ford, Dodge, and GM diesels, all looking to have issues with DPF and DEF systems. I wish I could remove the stuff on mine to get back some fuel economy but emissions testing is every 2 years here and they are very strict on enforcing potential violations. I'm not the type who likes to roll coal and don't like seeing it done by others. Not cool.
LOL Guess I was sleepy!? Some friend you are, pick on me instead of repairing the post!CumminGs?? :tango_face_wink:
Yeah, there is a lot to be desired when it comes to quality on those trucks. Take for instance the loose feeling window controls on the doors, loose front ends, etc. Stuff like that is a turn off.
BTW, The links are now working.

I drove behind many old worn out diesel trucks that just stank! Ran like crap by their speed as well!The other day I got behind some 96-99 era Power Stroke. GOOD GRIEF that thing was stinky. Took most of the day to get that smell out of the cab of my duramax. Made me gag as well. It definitely needed some work done to the engine. I drove a number of those Power Strokes in various box trucks back in the day and they did hint at the bad smell but not anywhere near as bad as this one was.
