    i had duals run with no muffler-it was still too quiet. so i cut out the cat and ran a straight pipe. it sounded pretty good for awhile...now the plan is to buy a cherry bomb for 20 bucks and see what happens lol

    what is the big deal about making something sound loud? I would rather have something that can back up its bark with a badass bite.

    Get rid of your cat to free up some horses and economy and put a glasspack on it. That's what I did on my 4x4... Cost is around $250 from header pipe back on a 2.8 with single. I thought about a louder exhaust on the 2.5, but in my past experiences with 4 bangers and exhaust, they either sound like a dirt bike or a rice burner... neither of which is good for a truck. If you've got expensive tast, Flowmaster and Borla are great choices for aftercat systems.

    I got a Y-Pipe after my cat and before my muffler, when i get to annoyed with that i just push the choke cable and it goes right through my 40 series flowmaster with a turn-down.

    I would prefer the flowmaster turn down sound, then the un-organized sound before my muffler. Just my oppinion.

    I have a flowmaster 40 series on my 1990 GMC Jimmy S-15 and it doesn't sound too bad. The only bad this is the automatic transmission does not allow me to reach a higher RPM to allow the muffler to do its thing fully. Also the 40 series, at least mine, seemed to take forever to get loud. When I brought it home from the muffler shop it sounded the same as when I took it there. Now, a year later, it's finally becoming loud. So don't be surprised if it isn't what you expected right out of the box.
    Drive fast? Why wait?

    Drive it like you own it!!!!
