Right now my exhaust setup is straight piped with flowmaster tips. Everytime I hear my friends dads exhaust on his 8.1 liter Silverado crackle when he is driving I wish my would do that. My car sounds really good all smooth, but I would rather it crackel instead. Does anyone have any idea how to make it do this?

No it doesn't run sh.tty. It's basically a brand new truck. His is also straight piped.

I'll keep my "stock pickup truck with bubba'd exhaust" opinions to myself, but the answer is easy enough.

Straight pipes all the way back @ stock diameter, or with really used up straight-thru glasspacks. Don't expect yours to sound exactly like that Silverado though.

Do remember, the firing orders are different and the path the pipes follow are also different, they won't sound the same.

How to make your ride sound just like his Silverado? Buy a Silverado just like his and put an identical exhaust system on it. :diablo:

Usually we hear "how to sound like Mustang?" here. Now a Silverado? lol jk

Seriously, you're on the right track with what you already have. Maybe check his truck and compare how his exhaust and yours is different.

Firing pattern is the same.

True dual straight pipes (without a H or X pipe) from the manifolds back will generaly produce crackles and pops.

You car is running too good. :thumbsup:

It has to run rich to get that crackle sound; that's fuel burning off in the manifold, generally.

My Firebird used to do that, when the carb was dumping enough fuel to kill the cats, lol.

Boy, how I miss those days... Not.



Sorry; I can't help much. Everything I've ever done has made these cars run better; seems like they were always lean when having a problem anyway. :zdunno:

Mine sounds somewhat like that. Just without the little "hiccups" "crackels" whatever you want to call them.

and it's caused by very small or large holes in the exhaust up by the motor...possible sealing issue and it's sucking in air and causes the noises.

Here is a great setup for 'crackle and pop'...

-2" duals (or even 1.75", ha)
-no crossover (X or H)
-no cats if you can get away with it
-blowmasters or nothing out back

i got those 40S flowmasters from a 97T-bird, they still have the stock Tbird located brackets,
im thinking about taking them off my 5.0L maverick and onto the Tbird :)
