Default 1st Gen Hood Stack Build
I've been doing some research regarding the legalities of building a hood stack for my '92 D350. Seems Idaho law says its ok, so long as the exhaust gases exit above the cab. An ISP who pulled me over for going too fast(me...going too fast? Who da thunk it ROFL) said he did not know of any law prohibiting a hood stack in Idaho. His concern was mainly visual obstruction. So, with those thoughts in mind, I'm working on a hood stack for my rig. I'll post pics as I make progress.

I'm using 4" exhaust pipe bought from NAPA. This is a pic of the segments I cut off of the pipe.

I wouldn't want to deal with it even if it was legal, your more then likely going to get pulled over quite a few times, get annoyed with being pulled over an then you have a hole in your hood lol

I've considered that, believe me. If I keep getting pulled over due to the stack, I'll install a cowl induction style hood scoop. Its all good

I have a couple pics of the truck when I bought it for a measly $500.

Here it has to exit behind the cab so good stacks grab a little more attention then regular stacks haha
Looks like you got a fun project!
