Which muffler/catback system?

Hey all
I am just wondering what would be best recommended for a new muffler.... I am looking for a throaty growl, but as the truck is our daily driver I dont really want it to drown out the cab..
I have been told that possibly the Flowmaster 50, or one of the Magnaflow mufflers might be good, but I wanted to know what you all thought... plus anyone have a good site or shop to order from?

Thanks and this site is awesome, the other one I was on was good but mostly american... its nice to be able to talk in kilometers and liters hahaha.

Magnaflow > Flowmasters.

Check with your muffler shop about a muffler made in Red Deer called Flo Pro. We've had them on the 2001 and it sounds great without making you deaf at cruising speed.

Everyone will turn their heads to see what's coming down the street.

Good to know thanks.... do you know if they have an online shop (before i start searching)?
I basically just want something that is a lil louder than the stock propane tank muffler, and will be able to hold up the salt and snow in the winter....
I had a raven muffler on my last truck, and will never go with that brand again.... sounded good for the first year then it developed a "ping" and rusted through and they wouldn't do anything for me....

Don't know about an online shop. The Pro Flo's were recommended by my muffler shop ( they do custom work for rods and performance cars), the price was right and the sound was great. Deep and throaty.

I have a Flowmaster Delta Flow 50 and I never realized how good it sounded until someone drove off while I was outside. You can barley hear it in the cab and if you want too hear it just roll down the windows....And I live in the great white north, zero rust so far after 3 winters

Not to sure how quiet it will be white my new headers, we will see, just found out I have to wait another couple weeks before I get home to hear them.


I only drive in the city, to get out of it!!!
