    another muffler ive heard on a 97'' z71 4 door tahoe was hooker mufflers. the aerochamber. they are very similar to magnaflow, smoother deep tones not loud, flow very well and is not loud and annnoying. i suggest magna flow or hooker from what ive heard they flow better than others

    We ran dual 70 series flowmasters on our 96 burb (vortec 350). It was quiet.....more quiet than i would want it after paying ot have dual exhaust installed.

    But on a blazer, the exhaust legnth is significantly less....so maybe it would be just about right?

    I have a single Flowmaster 40 on my 85 K5. I get alot of complements on the sound.Its not loud at all but it has a real deep rumble that makes it sound like I got more motor than I do.I love it!!

    Would you like to see (and hear) a video clip of my K5 on the chassis dyno?

    I've got a pair of the Flowmaster 70-series (the BIG muthas) which are supposed to be some of the quieter ones in their lineup. It's a true dual setup with no crossover pipe...
