Exhaust Question

I have a flowmaster 40 to put on my 3.0, but can't afford duel pipes. I was thinking of either dumping it with 2 turndowns, running it out the side, duals again, or getting 2 stock oem tailpipes (needs replaced anyhow) and cutting the bend off the end, throwing some tips on it and have "dual" exhaust that exits right beside each other. I don't really like the sound of the 3.0 with a 40 single in single out. I like the sound of single in dual out. Any suggestions would be greatly appricated.

Go with the Gibson Single Side system, and you will be much happier with the sound!! I could not handle the obnoxious "droan" sound with the Flowmasters, I'm much happer with the Gibson.

I like the pop gargle pop sound of the flowmaster, and I already have it. I'm just lost on what to do after the muffler...

ok I have a flow master 40. I've done the single out, yes it does suck. Not loud enough. As for the dual dumped, bad idea. Way to loud inside the cab, it will give you a headache driving on the highway. I have a single dumped and its not bad at all. But right now I think I'm going to go and do the dual side exit.

well ive got dual magnaflow straight out back, which has a nice sound and is not too loud, but you can hear it when you accelerate, also the cab noise isnt that loud turn on the radio and you wont notice it

The only thing I don't like about the side exit is the smoke that goes on your rear tire. Then it turns the wheel black. It would be easy to run though.

I have a good sound system! LOL! But I want to hear the engine as well. The stock exhaust is rediculously too quiet. I think I'm gonna run dual pipes infront of the pass. rear tire. It is the cheapest, best looking way as of now. (money)

best bet is just to wait and save up until you can run duals the way you REALLY want because you wont be happy with the result.. for me i ran my pipes out at a 45 degree angle out the back.. straight out the back is what everyone does, kinda boring ..the exit in front of the passenger side tire would be cool, couple people have it here and it looks fine. and it will be louder i think due to less pipe being used.

Well, I got the muffler on, gonna run the pipes out the side yet up but I'm very happy so far with the sound. Although I do think it decrease performance a little bit, I may be nuts though. I'll have pics and a vid up in the picture thread thingy.

Didn't really expect any performance gains, I'll get a vid when I get time. It sounds pretty good IMO.
