Of course its not necessary, but it will accomplish what he wants.......deeper sound. A glasspack alone is obnoxious IMO but put a flow 40 or whatever after it and the flow will muffle the obnoxiousness of the glasspack and create a deep and resonant sound that is louder and deeper than the flow alone.

My roommate did it to his 3.0 and it DOES make a difference, I would do it myself, but personally I don't want any more sound out of my exhaust, i like how it sounds now.

so basically an intake and air filter won't make any difference in sound to the muffler they only help in making the engine sound louder and performance?

I see your in Mason Ohio. Im from cincinnati, im up that way a lot.

Anyways, yeah I don't think the intake changes the tone of the exhaust much. Im not saying it doesnt at all, but Its just not a big difference, if any. It does sound neat under the hood though. As far as performance, it's not a night and day difference, but it does help some and give you some more mpg (so ive heard).

I am not sure about applications for our trucks, but do you know which flowmaster you have? I know they make 1,2,&3 chamber in both deltaflo and nondeltaflo designs. I also think there is a newer version that is supposed to be quieter. Going from a 3 chamber delta to a 2 chamber nondelta will def make it louder....assuming they make it for this application. Should be plenty of room up under there so I would be suprised if there was not something that would fit.

I had y-pipe duals after a Flowtech glasspack and big 3.5" tips. My Ranger sounded very much like that, but deeper and it didn't pop. I hate the popping you get with straight pipes on little 6's. I loved the loud, crisp sound of my Flowtech glasspack... I miss it.

Also, my '97 had less cats than later model Rangers so it was louder to boot.

I like the pop myself when I downshift, however I have 2.5" pipes with big 3 or 3.5 inch tips. I forget. The pops are deep sounding lol. It doesnt do it much, I have to make it do it.

I've heard that the Delta 40's are good...50's if you want more aggressive.

You will need to have a custom exhaust done to fit some "not perfect fit" mufflers. I had to have some done just to fit a Megaflow aftermarket muffler

Yes, exactly. You just need to find one with 2.25" diameter IN and 2.25" diameter going out for best applications retaining stock performance. If you go with total exhaust diameter larger than 2.5", there is no point and are losing performance. Do you really need that anyways? You can go with an exit diamter that is larger, but don't do something too extreme or "ricer-ish" with a 3" tip. I think it's ridiculous and defeats the whole persona of a "truck" with low-end torque and brute power.

Try to find something with a center/center or a same-side offset.

All muffler shops can take your exhaust, cut off the old muffler, and weld on a new one with new pipe. I dumped mine downward immediately following my muffler. I like it...

But yea...and you can definitely find used mufflers (a muffler is 97% good from personal sellers). Craigslist, eBay. You should be able to find a muffler for no more than $80 for one. If you are paying more, you are getting ripped off. If you can't find any, I can post links later. But yea...good luck.

Oh, and the single piping is fine and good enough for your truck. No need to send a Y-pipe or have more than 1 muffler...not necessary. If done right, a single can be jsut as loud on your truck and any dual cat-back exhaust.

So after doing a little talk with my buddy...he told me that it was prolly better to just go ahead and get a whole new exhuast rather than just get a muffler so i found a gibson split rear exhaust http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku
does anyone know how good gibsons are in producing sound and preformance?
