Custom Exhaust Systems
Have you been looking into adding a custom muffler or exhaust system to your vehicle? Well, it’s not really a bad idea because your stock exhaust system simply cannot give you that extra boost or roar you desire.
Nowadays most people will start with a quick Google search on “custom exhaust shop near me” or “diesel performance installers exhaust near me” or something close to that which will bring up multiple results, however, most of these will be your Meineke, Midas, Pep Boys or some other national chain. Now there is nothing wrong with getting your stock exhaust replaced with these companies, but when you require installation from real experts you’ll have to search a little harder.
Many vehicles these days are specifically designed to be quiet and to provide a relaxing and comfortable ride. However, not everyone’s is looking for such a docile existence. Some people want a beast!
If you want your ride to sound as monstrous as it looks then you almost need to install a custom exhaust for your truck. For a couple hundred dollars, you can have people turning their heads as you rumble past, or upgrade to some top of the line accessories and really make a scene when you come screaming past. By adding a custom exhaust system you’ll not only change the sound of your truck and give it an instant shot of testosterone, you’ll also instantly see a dramatic change in the lackluster performance you’ve grown accustomed to.

A quick performance exhaust install will also increase the amount of torque you have to work with, and it will add to your trucks overall abilities. By installing a new exhaust system, you will see an increase in horsepower and torque and you may also see your fuel mileage increase, and your exhaust gas temperatures actually decrease.
A popular brand of exhaust we use is MBRP. MBPR performance exhausts come in two types of stainless steel the T304 and the T409. The advantage of the T304 stainless steel is it will not oxidize or rust but may develop a golden color when exposed to high heat over time. The T409 stainless steel has more ferrous material than 304 and will most likely show surface oxidization after some time, especially when exposed to road salt, which we get tons of here in Chicago. This oxidization can be prevented by applying a stainless steel cleanser with a scouring pad. For those of you concerned about long-term appearance we recommend you invest in the 304 stainless. If you are more price sensitive, we suggest you go with the 409. It’s more durable than aluminized steel, but without the high price tag.
Most diesel exhaust systems will fit with factory installed trailer hitches and most aftermarket hitches too. You may run into obstruction problems if you have a 5th wheel or gooseneck hitch installed. If you are utilizing one of those hitches, we will suggest installing a single system and not dual exhausts. Additionally, for all dually trucks we recommend that exhaust tips be installed to extend the exhaust and prevent any discoloration of your truck. Below are the different types of custom performance exhausts on the market today.
