View Full Version : Duramax tailpipe

12-12-2002, 02:59 PM
While traveling the I-5 slab homeward bound, I accidentally let a Duramax pass me and he moved into my lane ahead of me. I just happened to notice that the tailpipe looks about the size of a gasser's tailpipe. Poor thing. He sure tried to trick it up. Fancy b-i-g tires, chromey bumper, good looking camper, but a teenie exhaust pipe. Since the state patrol were busy, we behaved.

???<br><br>I measured my buddies pipe, its 3.5&quot; stainless. Same size as the stock DC pipe.. With mandrel bends too.<br><br>Not that small......<br><br>J-eh

Sure looked small. I know he was a duramax, read his logo on the side of the door. If that's 3 1/2 inches, it's deceptive. Are you sure your buddy is stock. This guys wasn't stainless. Maybe I'm going to have to go over the local chevy dealer disguised in my wife's Honda and get a closer look at the tailpipe.

That was stock.. The order sheet says &quot;3.5 inch stainless&quot;.. <br><br>Not saying that the build sheet isn't lying.. but I haven't done a spark test on the pipe...LOL..<br><br>It is nice tubing if you can get a good look..<br><br>J-eh<br>

My boss has a maxipad, it does look like a dinky pipe to me as well... can't believe it's the same as the DC stocker... <br><br>Tony

Had one come to the shop today ... looked small to me. Very quiet too. When he took off I thought it was a gasser. <br><br>Wouldn't drive it !!!<br><br>PISTOL
