    I have to get a new muffler... And my parents have a 91 blazer, mine is an 88 both K5... Their rig sounds way way louder than mine.... And I like it... Sounds much more powerful.. ya know... Everyone will say... why don't you just ask what type of muffler they have... but it doesn't work like that in this house... rite now anyway... I am in the dog house... but anyway... Any ideas as to what type of muffler I should get? A buddy says flowmaster... thanks for the help!

    The majority of people on this website will say Flowmaster and I definitely agree. I've tried 4 or 5 different brands of mufflers and I've had 2 different sets of Flowmasters and they were my favorites. Thats what I have on my Blazer right now and when they wear out, I'm getting some more just like 'em. If you want loud, get the 2 chamber ones like I have. Or if you want to save some money and want it the loudest, just get some cherrybomb glasspacks.

    I have a single flowmaster with a y-pipe on my 88 and i am pretty pleased. Once I get money for headers I am running true duals and will definitely run dual two chamber flowmasters. A friend of mine was kind of hard up for money and ran true duals with Flow-Pro mufflers.(Two chamber)and that thing sounds real good. Loud as hell. He saved about 25 bucks on each muffler that way but I dont know if they will last as long or not. Dont know much about them. Trust me on this one, get out of the dog house as soon as possible. I say that from experience. Good luck!

    i run duals no cats and glass packs. sounds plenty loud. mines 81 in texas 84 and up required to have cats so i don't have to worry about it. it's fun to set off other cars alarms just starting it up. flowmaster with give you a more throaty sound mine sounds diffrent its hard to describe. anyway both are good

    Doin' it all on a college budget

    To tell you the truth even if it HAS to have one not everyone DOES run one. I have a family friend that owns an exhaust shop that put exhaust on my truck. It is an 88 with no catalytic converter. It is definitely illegal but I did it anyway.

    Actually in Texas you are required to run Catalytic converters on every vehicle 1/2 ton and passenger vehicles since 1975 (first year for cats). Your most likely in a county that dosen't require a visual inspection, or sniffer.......

    I live in Texas too and it depends on what county you live in if you have cats. In Dallas county where I live you have to have them and the inspection is more-like $25. In Collin county just a mile north of me you have to have them for anything newer than 84 and the insp is like $5.

    I run ceramic Flowtech headers to Hi Flo cats to Dynomax mufflers on my 89 K5Jimmy...it has plenty of stoplight attitude and is still quiet enough on the road to hear the stereo...no crossover because I like the way duals sound...in Collin Co, Tx insp is $12.50...I also have a 79 K5Blazer with Hookers, no cats, Walkers...in Dallas Co I never had a problem with the $12.50 insp...I now live in Collin Co...and it is still $12.50...I don't think the insp charge changes with the vehicle or with the county...good luck with whatever choice you make...JD
