Would it run okay? It is an older truck and do not want to stick anymore in it than necessary. Just a back up truck do not drive it much.
Do you
have the same problem?

You can do this but it will be louder and can throw off engine pulses which could cause some performance issues. However, I doubt you will notice any issues.

However, I would suggest shopping around because I found what appears to fit your truck under $100.00. Clearly it is more then just a pipe but these parts are not too expensive. Thanks

Hello, I'm Danny.

Just here to add my 2 cents. You won't notice any performance difference removing the resonator and switching to straight pipe. The resonator just acts as a back up for the muffler. You won't lose any back pressure or performance, gas mileage but you might notice a slight sound change. Switching to the straight pipe might make it slightly louder. Hope this helps and thanks again for using 2CarPros.
