    I personally like the Aero turbine muffler. "Supposedly it helps with MPG" though I have nothing to compare it to since it was the first thing I did to the truck before putting any mileage on it.

    I put a magnaflow stainless steel exhaust on my truck, it does help out the MPG a little, well anything you do to your truck to get air into and exhaust out of the engine easier will help out your fuel economy. I like my magnaflow, when I get another truck it will be magnaflow again!

    X2 for the Magnaflow. I got my Magnaflow muffler replacement and an 18" chrome echo tip installed for about $200. I got a definite boost in power and fuel economy (also already had my K&N intake), and it sounds great!
