modified exhaust
Posted by: space-time
Date: August 28, 2016 07:04AM
I saw this little pick-up truck with 2 exhaust pipes mounted vertically behind the cabin, and when it started, made a loud noise and let out a cloud of thick, black smoke that took several minutes to clear out. I guess it was a Diesel truck, even then, the guy must have made significant changes to the engine and exhaust system, since I find it hard to believe that anything produced in the last 15 years has this kind of exhaust. The truck looked pretty new, maybe only a few year old.

Why do people do that (it's a rhetorical question), but most important, how did he pass emission test? I didn't get s chance to see the license plate to see what state he is from.

Not all states require emissions testing. Lots of states have yahoo knuckleheads, though.

It seems a lot of idiots like rolling coal and making noise. I prefer the quietest ride I can get.

Addressing your questions one by one:

The black smoke is diesel exhaust as you surmised, but it is due to a dirty fuel filter. Diesel fuel filter get dirty, affect timing and put out nasty smoke.

Not all states have emissions testing.

Why does anyone put $ into customizing a vehicle? There are as many reasons as there are people. (because they didn't want a tattoo?)

The tractor mechanic my family uses says some call it, "Prius Spray". When he said that I was like how
stupid. My son was hauling some round bales of hay down the road back in the Spring and someone
done this to him as they were passing, blew black @#$%& all over him, rednecks!

less than half the 100 counties here require emissions testing.

I've seen them here in Colorado, typically they have been Dodge pickup trucks. One did have a large sign that said: "Prius Insecticide."

Why are these morons so bothered by a Prius?

It's usually those butt riding, towing mirrors all the way out, Dodge truck driving morons.

My brother does a fair amount towing and he asked a Dodge driver one day why he rode around with his
mirrors extended all the way out and he told it was called, "Phantom Towing". Are these people nuts or what?

The morons must be jealous that Prius owners are getting 50 mpg, while they are lucky to get 15 mpg!

I was behind a low rider at a stop light once, and when the light went green and he took off, a huge cloud of smoke bellowed out from his car. It turns out that he apparently had a way of dripping oil on his exhaust system at the push of a button.

'modified exhaust' is also the reason my HOA had to ban all motorcycles.

after some resident's kid decided to 'straight pipe' or whatever the *!@# else they do to make it sound loud as possible.

Would they ban cars if someone was hit by one? Or, does noise trump everything ?



Hurts like a bastid...
