    Default Exhaust Suggestions

    New to the forum I have a 04 Silverado with the 5.3L V8 and was looking for a good exhaust system with a low rumbling tone but cant decide on magnaflow or flowmaster or if anyone has seen any not so known brands that are good to any input it appreciated

    Flowmaster and Magnaflow tend to be about the same in volume and cab drone. Borla and Corsa cost more, have less cab drone, but are low and vocal when you get on it. Use the search tool on some of those key words to find posts pertaining to exhaust that might help you decide.

    You might want to check out the "Wheels and Tires" and "Lifted and Offroad Suspension" sections of the forums for those items. Also, the site's search tool will help you in those departments, too.

    Well my vote would be for the Magnaflow as that is the route I went and I am very happy with it. I have very little cab drone and mine is low tone until you get into it and then it will talk to you. Just my opinion. Welcome to the club.
