I'm going SI/SO, but trying to decide on 2.25 or 2.5 for the SI/SO. I know on the delta 40s on SI/DO you wanted 2.25/2.5 I think.

well there isnt any thing really special about the Super 44... its just a super 40 design in a smaller casing(thinkness wise). if you like the sound of a standard flowmaster 40 series.. then go with super 40 series its same tone just louder. and if you dont have the room for a super 40 or just feel the need to 'keep up with the johnson" then get a Super 44..

and the reason i know all this is bcause its my job i sell them everyday....

but dont get me wrong they are great mufflers... but they sound the exact same as a super 40...

So the super 44 Is the same tone as the Standard 40 just louder? Just making sure I interpreted that right. In that case I'm gonna go with a Super 44 for my next muffler. How about the Delta Flows 40, are those louder/softer then the original 40s.

correct the super 44 is the same case as the standard 40 series just louder... and the delta flow is tricky to explain... basically it is the same tone outside the vehicle but there is no resination( kinda sounds like someone turned on a sub and put the volume at 100% and turned the music off..so you just get that almost buzzing noise) inside the vehicle, i definately suggest getting any of the series in delta flow because it saves you on the head ache you get if you have to sit in traffic or anything like that... its something that you dont notice unless you are paying attention and then you think to yourself 'OH MY GOSH, HOW I EVER GO WITH OUT THIS" lol or something along those lines....

Sorry to hijack the thread but would it be better for my 3.0 to go with a SI/DO 2.25/2.5 or 2.25/2.5?

Trent, i personally would suggest going with the smaller pipe size and then do a nice long tip coming out the back. but thats just my opinion

Agreed... If you go with 2.5" in you should have 1.75" duals to keep the volume of exhaust up. dual 1.75" pipes equals the same flow rate as a single 2.5 inch. On a unmodified 3.0h though, I would say 2.25 inch in and dual 1.75" pipes out (I only say 1.75 instead of 1.6 like it should be, because I don't think you can get pipe that small everywhere, if at all)

Correct, otherwise known as a SIDO Single to Dual... 2.5" to the splitter, then 2" out the back on each pipe\




EDIT: Don't mind the double post, internet is running DANG slow from a couple downloads.. doh!

no.......but a muffler shop can expand the end of the pip to meet up with the muff inlet/outlet size. You can't get a Super 44 or Super 40 thats 2.5 in/dual 2.0 out. Gotta settle with a 3" in and 2.5" out. Doesn't make a difference.

Depends on who's doing it.. a 'professional' exhaust installer can get you anythign you need, and for MUCH cheaper... the only thign they shoudl need to purchase woudl be teh splitter and any fixtures he/she cant readily do with their own piping

I have read a few posts that say Flowmasters can make your lose power etc...

Can Flowmasters make you lose power or tq in any way, shape, form?

By runnign pipe too big or too small for your current engine setup, itll give you too much back pressure, or exhaust it out too fast resulting in not enough backpressure, the standard for a 4.0L would be a 2.5" out or dual 2-2.25" out on a split, that gives a sufficient amount of backpressure to make you not lose any low or upper end power :-)

So the Flowmaster itself will not make you lose any power?

I like the sound of that. I might have to get a new exhaust set up for christmas.
