2 brand exhaust mod?

alright so I have major exhaust leaks and i've been researching a lot and asking all my southern friends and i narrowed it down to 3 brands - CHERRY BOMB, MAGNAFLOW, & FLOWMASTER

i found a steal on a cherrybomb y-split with 45's that i used to have:
Cherry Bomb 300674 VORTEX KIT, but I may just stick to a regular catback from magnaflow

and i was wondering if i didn't like the sound of the magnaflow (if i decide to go with it), would it be possible to maybe switch the muffler with a flowmaster super 44?

and does anyone know the difference in sounds/performance between the 3?

Magnaflow sounds good, cherry bomb is a NO for all vehicles and flow master is better on V8s IMO.

This is an awesome muffler, it has a great sound and it will not drone on the highway. It will probably make a little more power than the rest you have listed.......and last longer.

This is essentially a Flowmaster-like construction (chambered muffler). As such I would expect it to perform pretty much the same.

Hooker Aero's dont have the maze of backpressure producing baffles in them, they are a straight through design (you can see all of the way through it). They have a good tone yet at the same time arent obnoxious sounding like Flowmasters. The Hookers are made out of thicker gauge material and won't fall apart in 5 years either. I have heard of many complaints about how the baffles come apart in the Flowmasters and bounce around inside making an annoying noise.

It's all personal preference. I personally have tried both and and going to stick with the Hooker Aero.

Good luck with your choice!

For now im going to stick with the an original exhaust kit for 2 weeks until I get paid again and do more research on mufflers. But I like the feedback! I do like the sound of a flowmaster super 44, but ill def check out the turbine and hooker
