another thing i was thinking about was since mine are true dual should i buy a muffler for each pipe or one with dual inlets. which would be louder? cause i know true duals are louder.

True duals, 2 mufflers will be louder. If you like it to be loud sometimes but not always, I'd suggest single flowmaster 40 series with a manual cut-out. With the cut-out you'll be able to bypass the muffler if you so fit by undoing 3 screws that takes 15 secs. I had this setup on my last truck and loved it. :great: best part is the muffler is like 65 dollars and the cut-out is I think 30. It's best to have it all welded up by a shop so I'd say out the door with maybe $150.

Cherry bombs or magna flow and bassani Borla and corsa are also better but expensive. You can chck ebay and might find something cheap there. Sorry not a fan of flow masters. I dont want my chevy to sound like a ford .

I'd love for my GM to sound like a Mustang. ( Please don't hate me but they sound amazing with the right set-up)

Those Mustangs sound nice my neighbor has the 08 and it just sounds nice and sweet when he gives it a little gas. I would also love to have the hoe sound so sweet :)

I think im going to do dual super 44's with dual cut outs before the mufflers! then i get the best of both worlds. I also found 3 1/2 turndowns that you can put on the cut-outs

one question do the turn downs mess up the flow at all since they have that extra pipe coming down?

I don't think they would mess up the flow since they would be attached to the cut-out and only come into play when the cut-out's are open. I'm just wondering if your going to have a problem with backpressure or leaking with all the tubing and routing going on?

Years ago (I'm not going to say how many) I was always a fan of Cherry Bombs. Typically my cars always had dual exhausts with an H pipe to equalize back pressure. The sound was always a nice mellow rumble that gave way to a pleasant noise when you hit the gas.

you dont think i would have enough back pressure? i still have cats. all i would need it section of each pipe cut out for the mufflers then a small section for the cutouts before the mufflers

oh by turn downs i mean there are ones that can be fit on the end of the cut -out so its directed where ever you want. dual mufflers are going to be expesive. would dual in dual out flowmaster 40 have a good deep tone?

no no hate here. every body has dif tastes. Ive had corsa on my 02 av and loved the sound. I put them on my 05 gto and it made it sound like a race car. funny thing is when i take it out for a ride cant find any mustangs anywhere and when i do for some reason they keep a long distance from me. Any way back to orig. the less back flow you have the better. the straighter the pipe the better. but i dont think you should have too much of a problem. post some pics when you get it done.

I have decided to hold off for now. keep the true dual awhile longer so i can do some more research. I have seen on jegs.com race mufflers there small and straight through design how would that sound??
