Hey Zach that doesnt sound half bad for a 4 cyl. if someone didnt know what motor you're running they would probably think its a 4L V-6 lol.

ya, sounds good. i dont mean to take over the thread but since we practically have the same truck aside engine would my 3L sound good with a flow ? ive heard it on 05's but i have yet to hear one on a 93-97 version. (again i apologize Ryan)

Edit: I've already made my mind up on getting the muffler put on, just wanted more opinions.

I got a flowmaster 40 on the stock 2" piping. Now that its been on for a month or so, its starting to kinda sound like my brothers straight piped 3.0 he used to have, which sounded nice.

All of my friends that heard my 2.5 with a Flowmaster 40 series non-delta-flow thought it had a V6 at least! It sounded very throaghty and rumbly, unlike most other 4-cylinders!!!

Redneckstone has the idea with his video there...that's a great representation of the Flow-40 on a 4-banger.

you can leave the window up i just wanted to see if your truck ''hummed'' inside the cab. my exhaust is only a week old so that could be the reason too.

edit: its cool if you cant a vid, i know how the weather is and all.
