    I need to quiet my exhuast, currently I have stock manifolds that collect into a single three inch flowmaster (model unknown) that dums down after the axle, also I have no cat.

    I cant handle the constant noise. I would like to still hear it a little when I get in it but just not so loud. I am thinking of getting the flowmaster 70 series but they are so big and cost a lot.

    what else should I be looking at.

    BTW mine is a multi purpose rig seeing a little of everything

    I personaly have a Series 50 muffler. I LOVE how it sounds. under acceleration it sounds great and if you realy get on it... Well I like it. at idle you can hear it but just cruisin its actually pretty quiet.

    I run 2 1/4 pipe into the muffler then a 3" out dumping in front of my Lf Rear tire.

    Tomorrow i can post a sound thing if you want. Its 9 right now and probaly wouldnt be the best time to do a Muffler uhh Sound clip i guess lol

    where is the muffler mounted? if under the cab then move it past the back of the cab. this will be better as it wont resinate under the floor. and also get it to dump out a actual pipe from under the body as this will make it sound louder. my friend has the same truck as me and same exaust with same mufflers. his is just dumps from mufflers to under the box. and it is much louder than mine that exits the sides of my box at the rear.

    I should have mentioned that I have a blazer and not a truck. My muffler is mounted in front of the rear axle it then has about 1/1/2 ft of 3 in pipe that dumps out behind the rear axle on the drivers side. I plan to exit it out the side after I put on new muffler to help with sound thanks for the replies keep em coming

    you dont need a new muffler... move it back a little, run the exhaust up over the axle, and exit it out the side. you should be good then.

    Ive got a 91 burb with all stock 3" exaust tube, no cat, and a 3:flowmaster 40. (yes it goes all the way out the side behind the back tire, like factory) And mine is to loud for me. On the highway I like it alot but i hate it in the city. its just do damn loud. Im going to try iether stickin a glass pack in before it (like a resonator) or just ditch the flowmaster and get a regular old 3" turbo muffler. In conclusion If its too loud for you now its still going to be too loud with or without the full length tail pipe, and the flowmaster.

    I had this same set up exiting out the side before and it was too loud for me then. So I would like to find a quiet muffler I would rather it be too quiet then too loud.

    anybody ever try using the glass pack as a resonator that sounds interesting.

    what other mufflers are going to be quiet

    For a mellower tone in a quality muffler I like the Magnaflow. check 'em out.
