    They only cost $40 a muffler

    I have to wait 1 more day to get them installed, the mechanic that I have do my stuff has something going on, which he only charges $20/HR so that's fine with me

    Well they r not as loud as I thought they would be, little louder than stock but not by much really. So hopefully within the month I'm cutting the cats out to make it louder

    Ill try an have a video up in the next couple days

    Well the Super 44 is a nice sounding muffler.. But it will never be super loud none of them really will be. Just so you know.

    That's OK, I want more of a rumble than it currently has. I do plan on buying longtubes to get more sound out of it

    they are actually O2 simulators is what they are called, and google it is best i can offer.. I havent looked for them before.. I know they will make everything respond the same.. And if you are cutting the cats then i would consider leaving the mufflers you have now cuz that thing is gonna be STUPID loud with a 44, and no cats. A lot of the quite that you have going on right now is because of the cats.... Just a heads up

    O that I didn't know. Maybe I'll get different cats then, because I am definitely getting rid of the 2 1/4" exhaust, an going up to 2 1/2" exhaust

    Well i am not saying I would. I consider loud on a different scale than you might. Id try it out and see if you like it rather than spending so much on cats... Think about a muscle car that you have seen that you know didnt have cats with just mufflers... and add a bit since a truck has more bends/longer pipe...

    Thanks for the tip, never thought of that before. I do know I will not have it as loud as my mustang was, which had an o/r x pipe and slp lm1 (loudest catback known to mankind for a mustang)
