    Default Magnaflow/true dualed

    I have one magnaflow muffler right now and I like the way it sounds I'm just looking for something a little bit louder. If I got it true dualed would there be a significant difference in the sound or should I not even waste my time?

    Cut your pipe after the muffler exit if you dont mind losing the tip. It makes it a lot louder. a man once told me that one 3" pipe has more volume than two 2" pipes

    You could run it out before the tire, it would make it louder and you would still have the tip.

    That would be a good idea but I've always had a thing for straight pipes out the back. I'll look around online of some pics of the tips coming out before the tire to help me make up my mind. I appreciate your help though I can tell I'll enjoy this site haha.

    One more thing this might sound really dumb but when it comes to pictures on computers I'm a little lost, how can I get my signature pic bigger like yours, you need a magnifying glass to see mine haha

    What Magnaflow are you running? I have a Flowmaster 40 series on mine with a 3in pipe and sounds good. If you are looking to get just sound out of it i would recommend running a dual set up, however you are going to loose some power, If you are looking for performance and a good sound i would say go with the 40 series and a 3in. You are going to get more power out of a single exhaust, but you'll get louder out of a dual with two 40 series.
