Been meaning to get my dual exhaust on my '85 6.2L diesel Blazer fixed
(replaced) for a couple of months now, but just have been so damn busy. Well
today it broke to 2 places. Man, is it so much louder. So my question is,
will I be okay driving it for 2-5 days without harming anything until I can
get it into the shop to be replaced? While I am at it, any recommendation on
what type of pipes and mufflers? Am not looking to go real expensive, but
wouldn't mind a little bit better "go" in the pedal if that can be achieved
with the exhaust on a 6.2L diesel. Anyhow, thanks for any input you can
If it's much louder, then, you are probably experiencing more power (less
exhaust restriction in a diesel engine, which is throttle-less, is always
better). The only thing you might harm is your (or others') hearing, and
maybe your wallet if you get a ticket.
Larger diameter pipes (starting at the cylinder heads if you want to ante up
for the cost) and flow-through/turbo mufflers will help. Shop around. I
picked up twin turbo mufflers at AutoZone for our '86 6.2NA suburban.
