Pimping up your 5.9L Cummins engine with an aftermarket exhaust system will definitely add some performance improvements as well as give you that loud rumbling roar that will make late night stealth rides a thing of the past (Unless you install a muffler).

Yup, you will no longer be driving around in a nice quiet suburban attitude, it’s time to get all Republican and have a loud-mouthed red-neck exhaust system, and I say this with pride.   On the other hand, if you live in the suburbs and you need to keep quiet, consider a muffler, it will help you even if you are a loud person.

There are many brands out there, and you can get some great made in the USA models.

Replacing Your System

If you decide on replacing your old system with a new one, factor in the following features and functions:

Material: pick either aluminized steel or S409.

Sound: for loud noises, getting that guttural roar, by a system without a muffler. If you want silence, then buy a system with a muffler. (Simple)

Replacing: You can either take it into your mechanic/garage, or you can replace it yourself. If you want to replace it by yourself, check out this easy Wiki-how site for replacing a muffler system on your Cummins 5.9L truck.

Yes, it states 6.7L, but the process and method for replacing are identical.
