Straight pipe envy
Posted 30 March 2012 - 06:59 PM
Which got me wondering, how does straight pipe size affect engine performance in a turbo'd diesel? I've heard different theories, but figured some of you guys would know the facts.

We got a local kid running around Minot that has dual 8" on his Chevy 1500 pickup. I have been quite tempted to go and drop a few kids size bowling balls down them when its in a parking lot some day.
So given the pipe size to engine displacement ratio I calculated that the 549 V8 in my old fire truck will need the culverts from my driveway for me to be cool!

Or, are the pipes skinny or flattened to run up the gap between the cab and the box, and then get made large like that after they rise above the top edge of the bed's box? I've never seen a setup like that from up close in person, just from passing by on the road.
