    Wasnt quite sure what category to put this in but figured id get the most feedback here. I drive a 2010 Silverado 5.3L. Im looking at ordering a flowmaster 40 series muffler but not quite sure what size inlet i need to order. Any help here?

    Probably ought to climb under the truck and take a few measurements.....

    You should have 2.5 inch stock exhaust and would need the inlet to accomodate that. I would recommend welding the muffler versus clamps. Thats just my personal opinion from my experience. If you are planning to have duals make sure that you get the muffler that has dual exits. You will like the new sound. I have the 40 series flowmasters on mine and it sounds nasty! I went with the true duals though. Good Luck

    Your more than likely looking at a 2.5" inlet and outlet. I would just take the truck to a local muffler shop and have them get the size for it.

    Just thought id mention...i have a 2011 5.3 silverado my inlet is 2.75 '' and my outlet is 2.75 ''. I just ordered a magnaflow my self 3'' in and out. let me know what you did to convert the 2.75 to 3 inch for your flowmaster.

    do all you people changing your exhaust have tuners or are you just doing it and dealing with the AFM issue. just curious cause I really miss having a loud truck
