Thread: Exhaust

  1. #1

    Default Exhaust

    im looking for a muffler for my truck to get duals, and am looking for something thats not annoyingly loud, but not too quiet either, the stock exhaust on this truck is too quiet and driving me crazy. i was thinking about a magnaflow or a gibson but i dont know how loud either is, id even consider a flowmaster. does anyone have any suggestions?

    Do a search, you'll find tons of info out there regarding various exhaust systems. But it's really all about personal preference man. I'd suggest skipping the search and take a trip to your local exhaust shop, see what they have, and go for it. Good luck!

    gibson and dynomax are not very loud but you will still hear a difference. flowmaster 40 or super 44 series are great sounding exhausts and are pretty loud. i have edelbrock SDT on my truck and i am very happy with it, its a great sound, and is pretty loud too. my buddy has magnaflow on a 6.0 litre 2005 silverado and it sounds amazing and is loud so it cant be much different on a 5.3. its all preferance to what you want tho and price range

    I have Duals with Magnaflow HFC's and Flowmasters and sounds great. Like you said not anoyingly loud, but not too qiet either. You can get a custom exhaust put on alot cheaper than you can buy a kit. You could add LT headers for what they want for a catback system.

    sounds good but if you really want it to sound like a race car though on LT headers with high flow cats and oh ya. i did that with my 05 gto i put on corsa cat back with slp Lt headers and high flow cats, quiet when just driving but when you get on it race car city.

    Gibson will give you the power gains as a normal cat back would but its not very loud at all and costs more than some others

    Gibson is excellent for performance but costly. If you are just looking for a louder/ deeper sound without going crazy, get the MagnaFlow. Flowmasters are really loud (but thats why it's on my truck!).
