    Yep, not kidding.
    I haven’t had a bitch’n V8 with over 350 hp since I sold my ‘65 327 cu.in. El Camino.
    They both had /have that push-you-into the seat G-force thing during acceleration.
    Damn it feels good again.
    Now for some dual exhaust!

    Talk to Keith @dirtydeeds about your exhaust....He's the guy to go to...he'll take the time to explain everything to you, and he builds a kick-ass system!

    Awesome another Sunset Bronze! Nice truck, I have the same color and love mine. Like you said I also love the power. Hitting the tow/haul mode (when not towing/hauling) and hammering it onto a highway or something is just too much fun. :) The mileage penalty almost makes me want to stop doing it. Almost.

    Yeah I know what you’re saying.
    I just want a step up in rumble, than stock.
    Just a slight throaty tone if you know what I mean.

    Look up beast mode... turn off traction control for even better throttle response :headbang:

    Not nearly enough room here!
    I can tell ya' what Keith at BA Exhaust might say to that. You're a good candidate for one of his 10" systems. Call him before you 'settle' for an "off the shelf" system that just happens to fit your truck but with a pipe-size that robs you of low-end grunt and a muffler that rattles your teeth with drone!

    I also prefer a stealthy quiet exhaust system on my vehicles... I would consider a performance exhaust that sounded stock - is that even possible?

    None yet. Need help!
    Would a cold air intake do the trick? I put one on my old truck (gmc) and it would wake up and yell only when i punched it! :)

    I'm not a fan of cold air intakes on NA engines, but I did remove the carbon filter from inside the lid of the factory air box. It enhanced engine noise, and may have helped with throttle response.

    Funny hot rodding story. I was coming home from work and hit some road construction on a 4 lane highway, they were not working at this time of the evening. There was a car in front of me and out of nowhere an f150 pulls right up on my bumper. We come out of the road work and he goes by me and waves. Slightly tinted windows and I'll I could see was a guy waving. So I thought he wanted 2 race. So I floored it and was coming up on a long steep hill. I pulled away from the Ford by quite a bit so when we topped out I let off and thought that was good enough to put him in his rightful place, f150 behind Tundra. When he goes by me he rolled his window down. It was a cop. He said, "that truck has a lot more power than mine. I had mine floored." I didnt know what to think. Good thing I knew the guy

    Is the TRD exhaust really that loud? I had read from other people that it wasn't that bad, but when you get on it, it makes a nice roar. I really want to get one. But reading what you've written here gives me pause.

    Do you mean an annoying droning exhaust note during highway cruising speed?
    Don’t want any droning, nice mellow rumbling yes.

    Yes, but it's only information I have read - I have no first hand experience with the TRD system.

    Cupcake chit.
    @dirtydeeds claims 0 drone, quiet as stock on highway and louder than trd when you get into the throttle.

    I am sure there are people on here that have his system that can back it up.

    I just looked into his systems for the first time last night and decided that is definitely the way to go if you have the coin.

    Welcome aboard OP!
