    I have a 2004 Volvo VNL780 Cummins ISX 565HP 13SPD

    I change out mufflers all the time getting sick of it
    I see allot of truckers with straight pipe exhaust, now what are the pros and cons and will DOT give me a hard time and is there a way around it.

    You can run straight pipe if you wish I do on one of my 379s never had a cop mention it before unless saying he liked the 8 inch pipe

    Depends on what you want to do you can just replace the muffler with a pipe I did a full Lincoln exhaust but mine cost over 3 grand and I did the work
