Flows sound horrible on the 4.0...to droney and raspy.

magnaflow has the deepest tone, borla is mid and fartmaster has the highest tone.

Anyone have a clip or a picture of the bassani exhasut that goes all the way out the back? I would think it sounds different then the one exiting right out the side of the bed. Also, I am really liking the sound of the bassani, anyone know a good place to purchase?

I do like the sound of the Flowmaster the best but I agree that they drone too much. I have a SI/DO 40 series with 3 1/2" Magnaflow slash cut rolled edge stainless tips. I get a lot of compliments on the sound of it but it gets a little annoying on the interstate. I'm probably a little biased though as I have put flowmaster mufflers on 3 of my vehicles. I had 40 series on my Mustang, Big Block series on my 7.3L powerstroke and a 40 on my Ranger.

I had a original 40 flow put on 2 inch that the goes to 3 inch after the exhaust to a 3.5 inch tip. Its a single setup but it sound incredible compared to the 05 i had with 05 4.0 with straights. I work at a exhaust and service center and the exhaust guy tells the customers how good it sounds.

I want to add a catback exhaust for performance and mileage but I do NOT want any added exhaust sound. Does anyone know of a factory quiet system like that?
A local muffler shop says they can add a true dual system by adding another converter and pipes all the way back for about $400, or catback with fabricated duals for $300, but they use glasspacks - and I like the quiet ride and don't want to give that part up. Help - has anyone else has tried this catback conversion and maintained the quiet noise level?

That seems like a good deal for true duals..

Although if you are looking for performance and mileage, i would go with a single in single out borla or magnaflow muffler with 2.25" piping.
