    Or Borla. My Flowmaster Super 44 was $70 dollars, and I installed it myself for free.

    another thing i was thinking about was since mine are true dual should i buy a muffler for each pipe or one with dual inlets. which would be louder? cause i know true duals are louder.

    True duals, 2 mufflers will be louder. If you like it to be loud sometimes but not always, I'd suggest single flowmaster 40 series with a manual cut-out. With the cut-out you'll be able to bypass the muffler if you so fit by undoing 3 screws that takes 15 secs. I had this setup on my last truck and loved it. best part is the muffler is like 65 dollars and the cut-out is I think 30. It's best to have it all welded up by a shop so I'd say out the door with maybe $150.

    Cherry bombs or magna flow and bassani Borla and corsa are also better but expensive. You can chck ebay and might find something cheap there. Sorry not a fan of flow masters. I dont want my chevy to sound like a ford .

    I'd love for my GM to sound like a Mustang. ( Please don't hate me but they sound amazing with the right set-up)

    Those Mustangs sound nice my neighbor has the 08 and it just sounds nice and sweet when he gives it a little gas. I would also love to have the hoe sound so sweet

    I think im going to do dual super 44's with dual cut outs before the mufflers! then i get the best of both worlds. I also found 3 1/2 turndowns that you can put on the cut-outs

    one question do the turn downs mess up the flow at all since they have that extra pipe coming down?

    I don't think they would mess up the flow since they would be attached to the cut-out and only come into play when the cut-out's are open. I'm just wondering if your going to have a problem with backpressure or leaking with all the tubing and routing going on?
