Flowmaster American Thunder Kit-Anyone have or heard?

http://www.flowmastermufflers.com/?p...egory=category

Guy around me has one for sale and I was wondering if anyone has heard it? It is also for a pre 2013 model so I was wondering if it could be modified to fit my truck?

I have that same exact exhaust system on my 2006 TRD Sport and I really like it!! Not sure if the measurements are different for the 2013 models though?

something is different because it is saying that it doesn't fit on the website but I wonder if it could be modified to fit? What kind of sound is it? I don't want a ricey sound. Guy is selling it for 350 brand new in the box so i'm trying to decide what to do.

I know they make them for 2013's but obviously its going to cost more then buying it from him. I'm not sure what the differences are and if they can be modified?

The summit website shows that it will fit the 13?? Wonder why the flowmaster site doesn't. Now i'm really confused.

Hmmm...not sure what to tell you? Someone with better knowledge should chime in sooner or later.

Now that you say that basically all that thing does/shows is that it replaces the muffler and new pipe back with a 2.5" instead of a 2.25. Freaking muffler place wanted to charge me like 350 just to replace the muffler with a magnaflow. I need to find someone that knows how to weld.

That system has a super 50 series muffler. Guess now I need to start reading the thousand threads about which muffler sounds like what.

Yeah its the 50 series and its a deep throaty sound....not ricey at all. I hated the rice sound to and I was very pleased with this exhaust system. I also have a TRD CAI and it made it a tad louder but not by much.

I decided i'm not going to buy it. I'll just look into replacing the muffler only. I did post a link to it on the southeast craigslist finds though if anyone is interested.

Just curious is a flow master 50 muffler louder than a 40, a 40 is louder than a 10? Is that how they work or am I way off?

40 is louder than the 50. 10 series is the loudest.
