As you get older you find peace and quiet sexy.

I like the sound of a straight pipe ..... For about ten minutes, unless I start working it before the second 5 minutes. Then I will be tired of it very shortly. 

Neighbor put a straight pipe on his 1566 and plowed 10 acres and he will not have one of his farming tractors with a straight pipe again

Long axles, love em. 

Until you catch one on your barn post and bust it in half and about bring the roof down on your head. ?

No I've never done that. On a brand new barn.

Turbo motor with a straight pipe is music to my ear plugged ears that is sweet !!

I always wear hearing protection when I run any machinery now.

Too many years in a cab and machine shop to many 1/4 mile passes with open headers has taken it's toll.

  Teach your young ones to wear hearing protection and safety glasses also so they don't end up like some of us.

Indeed. I have hearing loss and ringing in my ears. Back in high school I drove a new at the time open station straight pipe 1256 for 3 years- Spring and Fall heavy tillage work. No hearing protection. I think I wrecked my hearing at an early age. It sounded good at the time. Oi.....

I got to the point that when somebody said something I'd turn to my wife to find out what was said.

Even with expensive hearing aids I'm at a loss in high background noise situations.

You young guys have the opportunity to save your hearing now; don't be like those of us who didn't. Jet engines were especially bad as they hit you hard in high frequencies but ALL loud noise does damage.

I bought my boys muffs and they have a selection of safety glasses to chose from. Like seat belts they don’t know life without using them. They will break the cycle

I'm right there with you! Carry a pair in my pants pocket at all times on the farm. Start something with an internal combustion engine, plugs go in. I get reminded every June that my hearing isn't too good and not getting any better. They have a threshold where you can't have a forklift license and I don't want to go there.

Our 856 with M+W on it came with a straight pipe. I was hoping it would sound as smooooooth and whistley as our 806 with an oversized Schweitzer (spelling) on it. It had a completely different sound. Had to put a muffler on it.  I think the turbo outlet and pipe on the 806 is a good 3/8-1/2" larger.  Would a m+w on a 856 have a much smaller turbo/outlet than a factory one on a 1256/1456?
