    I have a slightly built 355 and I'm getting where i need a new muffler. I have been looking at flowmaster and found a killer deal on one on ebay. Its a 40 series 3 in (1) 2.5 out (2) and its cheap. Do you think this would be to loud. I don't wont it to be miserable to drive, but a nice good sound is always good to me.

    Also if anyone has one of these mufflers and has a sound slip that would be awsome. Or if you have one how does it sound. I dont wont it to be redneck.


    Thanks Ahead,
    Clint

    i have a similar flowmasta... i think it sounds great. Of course, I run no top, no doors and no stereo (cause I like listening to my rig)... so I dunno if that helps any or not. lol!

    I had a stock 350 with a single 40 series delta flow, it wasn't all that loud and sounded fairly good. My current setup has dual 40's, Hooker comps bolted to a mild 406, and 5" tips. It's a LOT louder but has better tone too.

    I have headers, dual 2 1/4" pipes, and dual 40s with the tails exiting behind the rear tires. This is what I put on my truck to quiet it down because I used to drive it a little bit.

    Nobody will ever mess with you if you have flowmasters with tailpipes...they're just not that loud.
