My OEM muffler is starting to rust out. Rather than put it back the way it is I am considering building up a "weed burner" so that I can take advantage of the space gained rear of the cab. Looking at materials available it appears to me that a 6' section of 5" stainless steel flex pipe should work well from the turbo outlet to an inside mounting position for a new OEM style muffler pretty much equally distant from the fuel tank and drive shaft on the passenger side. I would use a couple of feet of the existing chrome stack as a tailpipe that points straight down at the ground (not out the side). All clamps will be stainless steel band clamps. I will, of course, need to make my own pipe hangers and supports. Charlie has mentioned to me on several occasions a restriction similar to a washer with a 2" opening welded in behind the turbo. I do not know if my truck has the same. It would seem that taking this out (if mine does indeed have it) would create better exhaust flow but at the expense of what? EGR, exhaust brake, turbo spin-up???? I've never paid much attention to how others have plumbed their weed burners. Any additional thoughts or ideas will be appreciated.
