    I can't find what engine you have in either your signature or profile. A single 3" exhaust flows plenty for the average small block but if you are pushing some HP you might want to think about duals, espcially if you require a restrictive quiet muffler.

    How quiet do you need it? The stock GM mufflers are very quiet. A 3 chamber flowmaster is "quiet" in comparison of a 1 or 2 chamber muffler.

    <font color="orange"> Yeah I am a newbie I don't have all my info out yet, but the blazer has a 350 with a edelbrock carb and aluminum intake and a mallory magnetic breakerless distributor, msd 6a ignition box, and a set of headers going on it. By the way I have some family in Willows that grow rice, and I am originally from Hollister.

    I have dual exhaust on my truck and I used to like it alot. It was cool to say you had dual exhaust and stuff but honestly now I would rather have a good 3" single exhaust system. Duals get in the way of alot of stuff. 2 mufflers take up twice the room and don't add much HP's over a good 3" system.

    It seems the more stuff I do to my truck the more the exhaust system gets in the way and the more I want to cut it all out and do a 3" system.

    [/ QUOTE ] A single 3" sounds perfect for your combo. With your engine you won't loose any power with a 3" single vs. a 2.25" dual setup. Less weight and less material in the way.
