    I just got the pitt power quiet performance mufflers put on, its a little deeper sound and you can really hear the turbo but the performance is astonishing. Didn't go on any trips yet to check fuel milage.

    The problem i am having is the mufflers on my '06 387 are 11" wide, and the Donaldson's are only 9" wide...tho they sell a 10" version for $300+!!!!!!

    Unfortunatley the way the stack is mounted and held in place, I can't do a #### thing about putting a 9" muffler on it due to the bracket goes around the ENTIRE muffler's 11" body. The only thing I can do is buy the non-drop in replacement Pitt muffler which is 10" shorter in lenght but still 11" wide.....saves me $100 a muffler so i can get new top stacks for basically free :)

    I just picked up 2 M100463s for my 379 Pete today, I'll let you know how it runs. I had Nelson 86682s on it and was getting around 7 mpg.

    First milage check, 8.25. I was usually around 7.5 but the average dropped in the winter so I've picked up .50-.75. Plus the truck runs alot better......

    I've been thinking about putting a set of the M100463's on my truck with the mercedes engine in it. I've heard some mixed reviews of these mufflers and was wondering if there really worth trying. I can get a pair from my local parts supplier for $200 for the pair so it's not a real big investment IF they would help. Right now I have Nelsen mufflers on.

    I guess my questions is, has everybody that's tried them been happy with the results???

    I'm happy with them, they are actually quieter than the Nelsons I took off, plus I can tell the truck is running better, milage is better, .25-.50 over the other mufflers.

    Like others have said, this is probably the best bang for your buck when it comes to freeing up horsepower and better MPG.
