I've got the magnaflow with dual outlets. Thier kit doesn't fit the FX4 very well. So I only ran it for a year or so. Few months ago I cut the tail pipes off and made new ones that come out behind the tires at an angle.

As far as sound goes. It has a drone at 2500+ rpms so with 4.10s it can get annoying. These new tips I put on are thick walled mild steel (stock is SS) and that actually made it significantly quieter. Still has a decent tone and is nice to live with daily. Not too loud but has a bit of rumble to it.

IMO it's still a little louder than the gibson dual outlet.

I like the sound personally. Mine is a bit different now but still has a magnaflow on it.


I had dual outlet magnaflow to the corners when my truck was new, it did sound real good.

I love my single in/single out magnaflow! Its the perfect sound. I used to have a flowmaster 44 and it was too loud IMO, got annoying at freeway speeds (2500 RPM).

I got the magnaflow si/do kit, and it has a pretty nice tone with my 3.0, so it probably sounds even better with the 4.0. Looks pretty good as well.

Its not a ' kit '. I bent the pipes myself.

Look...

If your going to do things ' right ', buying a ' kit ' will be a ' universal ' application.. Theres no guarantee anything will fit as a ' kit ' is made to TRY and fit everything and satisfy everyone.

Buy a muffler and have a local shop twist up and hang the pipes. This will GUARANTEE a solid fit, everything being clamped properly and no exhaust leaks.

If you have a local shop twist the pipes, they can make them clear any hitch, bumper, rollpan or axle and exit wherever you want.

my exhaust is one of the loudest 4.0s ive heard, right there with highrollerii's and nickstersvt's

JBA headers, 2 magnaflow cats, and 1 dual in single out magnaflow. no stock exhaust items are left.
