Thinking of new exhaust.....how is this flowmaster
Mine has the stock exhaust and was looking to upgrade. Anyone have experience with this one:
Flowmaster American Thunder Exhaust Systems
Found it in the Summit Rccing catalog. Going for 479.00. I want something that increases my exhaust note but not to the point I have to wear ear plugs............thats for the stereo...LOL

well, not sure what engine you have, but i chopped my stock muffler out, and had a regular flowmaster 40 series welded in, sounds great! gave it some tone and a little rumble, and isnt to loud. 75 on the highway is just fine.

You can look on youtube for it. I found a video for one on my truck and it sounded pretty good I just don't want to dish the money out for it. I'm thinking about doing what you did Sierraowner5.3 and weld on probably the 50 delta.

We have a thread on here called truck tunes check it out. Not sure how many people have posted it though. I'd go to local exhaust shops and get a quote might be able to get a custom ran exhaust cheaper than the kit2009 chevy 1500 z71 4x4

Just to give you an idea of prices. I was quoted $130 including muffler for a magnaflow muffler swap or $300 for a custom single in dual out exiting before rear tire. Flowmaster was about $10-$15 cheaper if I remember right.2006 Silverado Crewcab 5.3l, has a modified airbox with drop-in filter.
Mods to come:

OP, save yourself several hundred dollars and just swap out the muffler. Unless you want the look of the two tail pipes out the back, then get the kit you linked.Clint (TX) 2001 Silverado LS 4.8L auto 2wd ECSB [GARAGE]
