well as far as it being gay my truck is identical to the diesel models so not to many people would know and the only reasons i would want to do it is becuase then there is no worry about back pressure in water.

I dont mean gay as in look wise but purpose wise. When people see you driving down the rode with stacks they expect some smoke to come out of there but then when you take off and there is nothing that is what I meant. It is a good idea to keep it from mud and water.

i had a 77f150 and it had stacks on it, it was a mud truck, same reason as you want to, no water and mud in exhaust.

im thinking of moving my mufflers forward some cuz i already have dual exhaust then running the same size pipes i have now up they are 3in and then getting some nice 4 in chrome stacks to slide over them and mount in just so it doesnt look bad i dont think it will be that much louder when its finished

i ran a 3 inch 9 ito a 4x4 box tube for the cross pipe into the 4 inch stacks. I love them, i have changed the stacks to a set of bull haller stile that i had made to help keep rain out, but i think they sound good i have had peopl ask if i had motor work done like stroker and i dont have anything done.
All and all i like it and it works grate for what i wonted it to do

the only bad thing I can think of is that the v10s have a strange sound with-out any muffler on, or with pretty much any muffler out there..

If you dig the sound, then rock it.

mine must be running rich, thats why im only getting 21+ mpg.

and, IMHO, the only way a stack(s) look good is if they are sticking out of the hood. everyone else is just trying to be a super trucker.

Go for it. At least you've got a big enough gasser that will put out enough exhaust that the big stacks wont look pointless for. Either way theres no reason "not to". I'd love to put some on mine but would prob get heckled too much from everyone that I shy away from the idea lol.

Just because a diesel is smoking does not mean it out of tune. Lots of guys shave thier injectors and turn up the injection pumps just for the smoke an still run smoothly. Plus the smoke can also be carbon build up not just fuel. Ever notice the trucks ideling for and hour or so before they pull. Thats so the carbon will build up and they will blow more smoke pulling.
