exhaust question/s

so flame if you will, i was curious so i cut my muffler off. and dumped it right before the axle. sounds good in low rpm's a bit ricey in higher rpm's

i want to deepen it a bit. i had a flow 40, so im afraid thats the best it'll get, but what about a glasspack or something?

Super44.....i've had Super40, Super44, glasspack, magnaflow, dynomax ultra flo, original 40.....HANDS DOWN...Super44 beats all of them. Deepest, meanest sounding out of all of them.

I've got a glass pack on my Ranger. It made it sound more bubbley when getting on it (like a rumble bubble), but there is no way to make a V6 really deep sounding, unless you got the right V6. Ranger's just don't.

If you want loud, gutted cat or high flow cat, large piping. Mufflers are the exhaust opposite of loud. That's why they are called "mufflers".

Kick it out the side instead of under the truck. you'll be 100x happier and you dont HAVE to listed to it all the time. Which gets old! I can't wait to get new exhaust on my 'Cuda (mine dumps at the rear, V8, high compression, GETS OLD!)
