Another Exhaust?? I think mine is different?..

Ok... So i want to start out by saying that I have searched..(maby I missed it). I have foud lots of exhaust threads but they are just not what I am looing for..To me it sounds like everyone wants to be loud..Well I on the other hand would like the power increase, But I want to keep my truck quiet. I have all ready talked to the local pipe bender and he said a 2" would be best..thats what is all ready on the truck.( just about every thing I like that I have found so far is 2 1/4..) He also said he would like to do a off set/center. To get the inlet up a bit higher. I plan on doing a side exit on the pass side just in front of the tire... What would you guys recomend? I need more power! but at the same time not much louder than stock...
this is one of the ones I have looked at so far..http://store.summitracing.com/egnsea...+115&x=32&y=13

Thats the same line of muffler that comes in the Gibson cat-back systems. I have the Gibson Extreme Dual exhaust and it is single in with dual 1 3/4 outs. It has a nice deep tone but is not as loud as other systems. Definitely louder than stock but it is more geared towards performance than just being loud like the others.

Gibson is your best bet by far, any gibson exhaust is a tiny bit louder then stock, but not by much, and usually they run smaller pipe diameter for that reason, and hey, they look good too!!

Exhaust isint going to really give you much power since you have a stock (or mostly stock) motor.

If you want better acceleration, re-gearing is going to be your best bet (if you already havent)

If i would have known you were looking into exhaust i would have let you heard mine....its not very loud, flowmaster 40 series...has a really nice growl to it...

The pipe bender that did mine said 2-1/4 is best for the V6

When i get my titan.....im doing duals out the back with a flowmaster 30 series...one tip going out behind each back tire....

If you are mainly looking for performance than I would take a look at this thread: http://www.broaderperformance.com/mu...flow_tests.htm
It is from some guy who tested several different mufflers at his shop on his flow bench. Borla and Hooker seem to be two very good choices in the performance categorie. Gibson is unfortunately not on the list though, also I think that the borla is a little quieter and a lot more expensive than the hooker mufflers.

2.25 inch pipe is what is on the truck stock from the factory, you don't want to go any smaller that that if you are going single in single out... That gibson should be fine for what you want...

if its single in single out go 2.5 or 2.25

2" is WAY too small.

If you are going for power, you may want to rethink the side exit exhaust. I have one on my truck, and the required bends to get the pipe in front of the tire really restricts the airflow.

Yeah, I've been thinking about pulling my flow 40 side exit and replacing it with a dumped borla.

Exactly, the 90 elbows right off the muffler kill the 'flow' of the flow 40. I'm tired of the popping too. It sounds uber bad *** until you let off the fuel and it pops. If I could get it to stop popping I'd keep it.

I loved the popping/burping sound I got on my Mustang with a Borla/Ford racing muffler and stock pipes.

Im going to be doing a magnaflow 2.5" in and out single exhaust on my truck soon.
