    I have a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado Extended Cab Z71 with a 5.3 V8.
    I just put on true duals with 2.25 inch piping with two flowmaster 40 series mufflers. But it sounds like [I love Jeeps]. Very quiet and raspy. My V6 with the same exhaust was louder.
    I want the loudest and deepest exhaust I can get What should i do?

    You should have used one 40 and you would have gotten the sound your looking for. I had a 3 chamber on my '00 Silverado and it was deep, not loud but deep. Have someone give you a drive by and see if you like it then. Usually hearing it when your outside of the truck makes all the diffrence.

    are they with or without cats? the 50 series is deeper and more mellow than the 40. but, i agree, one probably would have worked better.

    I run a single in dual 2 1/2" out 40 series on my 01 GMC with a 4.8. I ran turndowns at first, right after the muffler. Loved the way it sounded, but it gave me a headache because of the reverb in the cab. Switched to tips out the back at an angle behind the tire. I think they are 22" long 4" diameter. Sounds different now, but still really good. I heard it when someone drove it for me the other day. Really liked it! I can take some pics if you want to see it.

    I have a 96 Tahoe 5.7 Vortech. I run TRUE dual exhaust with no mufflers (just two cats and four 02 sensors.) It is SOOOOOOO loud. My neighbors totally hate me. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I run my 95 TBI 5.7 with just a Y Pipe and Flowmaster, my neighbor hates me too /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif. He thinks being loud is going fast so when I go by he gives me the handle signal to slow down even though my truck can't even reach the speed limit on my road by the time I hit his house! ha. I was running right out the cat but it was too quiet the flowmaster is only slightly quieter than straight out the y pipe. Factory cats work pretty good as mufflers. ALl the ones I have dealt with anyway.
