Made a decision on the big 3, let me know what you think, good or bad!!
New to all the truck upgrade stuff, usually throw my extra cash into my quad, but after doin some research I decided to go with the Flowmaster exhaust 44 series, K&N CAI, and the Diablo Predator programmer. I have a 2010 Silverado 1500 Flex Fuel Z71 4X4 LT model. Is it worth it to spend $300 more for diablo trinity?? My main goal with these upgrades in better mpg, better sound, and the extra HP is a bonus. Let me know what you think, thanks alotMike (MA)-2010 Chevy Silverado 1500 5.3 Vortech V8 Ext.

Well I changed my mind and switched to the Magnaflow exhaust, I have a 15month old daughter and from what I read the drone is little to none with the Mag, still waiting for input, good or bad!!

Magnaflow makes a nice system, but to be honest, I think you will likely experience some drone with that system too.-2001 Suburban 2500 LT 8.1

As far as tone; the Corsa was pretty tame when driving conservatively, but would bark when you stomped on it. They have a raspy, crackling sound. Some like it, some don't. The Edelbrock sounds awesome, especially for a truck. Very deep and low.....very quality sounding. Will make your truck sound like a big block. Not overly loud. The Magnaflow sounds real good too. The way I describe the Magnaflow sound is like it's almost exotic sounding. Very creamy and smooth, if that makes any sense? Lol. It did drone, however. The Flowmaster will have a hollow sound. If you ever heard a 5.0 Mustang with an exhaust on it, there is a 90% chance it had a Flowmaster. It will absolutely drone.
Hopefully I haven't confused you even more. Again, they are all decent. Some cost more than the others, but like they say, you usually get what you pay for. Hopefully some others will chime in and add some input.
I just checked and upon a quich search, it doesn't appear that Edelbrock makes a 5.3 system. So that removes them from the equation.

I just put a single in duel out magnaflow on mine, I belive it was about 22" by 12". I just have straight pipes shotgun out the back and it sounds very nice. Can't wait to get some tips on in the spring and it might make it a touch louder. The drone isn't bad/isn't there much if at all. Only times I've noticed it even the slightest is on a longer low slope hill or something like that. Where your just cruising at 1600RPM or so for a while. other then that 100/110/120/130 km/h cruise on the highway and you barely hear the thing. but when you put it down you know its there.2010 Sierra Nevada Edition
