    Default 2010 Silverado Flex Fuel Muffler Suggestions.....?????

    I want a nice low rumble to my truck, not high pitched. I was told that the flex fuel trucks didn't sound good with a flowmaster muffler. Any suggestions?

    It's not the flexfuel...it's the active fuel management that makes it sound weird. I had Flowmasters on mine before I switched to Magnaflow. It sounded alright. It didn't sound good when in V-4 mode and I don't think anything will fix that except turning AFM off.

    Try a Dynomax #17233 Ultra Flo Welded muffler. 3" inlet and outlet. 20" body length. Stainless steel. Rumbly. Handles that 4-cylinder drone just fine.

    screw it just run cats only... with the right tip it takes away the raspy noise that you get from running it with out a muffler the only time it gets anoying loud is when you put your foot to the floor, but if you take it easy it sounds like its got a muffler

    dpelfrey,
    Check out this thread...
    http://www.gmtruckclub.com/forum/sho...r-44-installed
    It's a nice set up and you can also hear it on youtube. Perhaps you could PM the one who started the thread and ask them your questions. Hope this helps... I am looking to have a new exhaust system added in the near future, just have to get some headers first... Show us some pics!!!!!!
