    When I was plowing one of my commercial accounts, accross the street is a fire dept. After I was done plowing the lot, I was shoveling the walks. All of a sudden I heard this roaring POWERSTROKE ford coming. It sounded amazing! It had a whispering sound kinda like a semi. He had a black ford f-350 with a cab. He had a full edge lightbar on it, but he just had the front amber and rear red hide away strobes that looked AWSOME! Does anyone know what kinda pipe/modifications he had for this diesel sound effect. It was pretty loud. does anyone know of any websites that have diffrent diesel sounds? Also what is the best Powerstroke diesel? 7.3 6.0?????
    Thanks a lot guys!

    the 6.0 sound like a jet with a exhaust system. you can really hear the turbo screaming away under load.

    I've got the 7.3 with the Banks Power Pack and it has balls from hell. I've also got the Banks 4in. exhaust. Nice and loud.

    I own an 03' CC DRW Lariat LE with a 4" dual exhaust. It has to be the best sounding engine on the road.

    Mufflers are for cars. My 00' and 96' PSD's are both straight piped. What is it they say "loud pipes save lives" or something like that.

    Maybe for a oil burner but nothing sounds like a big block with nice cam and exhaust.

    It is all in the ear of the beholder. I have a 390 big block with a mild cam, dual exhaust and glass-packs in my plow truck but to me my straight piped PSD's sound way better. It is all in what you like.

    Well you have to like a diesel to drive one anyway basically but go to a truck pull and listen to the difference in sound between a oil burner and a gas burning big block and it is night and day difference.

    It is good that everyone likes things different. I don't think I would like my truck quite so well if everyone else had one that looked and sounded just like it.

    I got rid of my stock exhaust system and have a 4" downpipe, no kitty, and 4" exhaust. All from Dale at Tymar Performance. I have a muffler, but it doesn't sound like I do. The turbo whistles alot more now, and the truck is a bit louder. To get sound like that all you have to do is open up the exhaust system.

    I got the open air intake on both of mine from Dale. I also got a coolant filter system and HX hose setup from him. Great guy to deal with.
