Which Flowmaster?

I currently have a flowmaster 40 single in single out muffler and i want to either get a new 40 with a dual out or a 50 with a dual out. I want it to be as deep as possible but i really like how loud the 40 is. I just really don't like how the 40 sounds at higher rpm's.

I have searched the site and cannot find out how much quieter the 50 is than the 40. Does anybody know?

I have a 3.4 v6.
Thanks for the help.

well if that is your only option then i would go with 50 series. It has a more refined tone to it. less rumble but very deep. i also used to run 40 series on mine. it sounded good at low rpms but if i floored it it sounded bad.

as for the noise level. it will be around the same noise. my friend is running a 50 series on his tahoe and it sounds good compared to his 40 series silverado. nut both are v8 mind you.

I really like the 40 at about 2,000 rpm but if i go at it, it gets ricey. I would just really like to know how much quieter the 50 is because i love how loud the 40 is.

If you want it to really sound good, intake, headers, and a quality exhaust. Headers make a huge difference. Replacing the muffler won't make it sound much different. I have a single in/out Flowmaster 40 thats dumped before the axle. I agree that the higher RPMs sound kinda weird. Out in the desert, you fit right in. Haha. It's grown on me though. I like it now.

I think a friend of mine has a 50 and I didn't even know he has a new muffler at all. My suggestion, don't waste money on a new muff. You already have some sound. Save it for other parts that make more of a difference. DT Long Tube's make these engines sound real nice.

I've never really liked the sound of many Tacomas. A lot sound like go-carts, even with an exhaust. Mine sounds different probably because it's dumped.

Dual outs look sick but not on the 1st gens. I think bigger trucks can pull them off a lot better. keep the 40 if you like more sound. if u want less go with the 50

Is the super 44 loud like the 40 and really deep like the 50?

Is it the super 44 extreme or just the regular one? Is there a difference or is one just plated to make it stronger?

I haven't ever heard a 44 that I know of, I was running 2 flowmaster 40s at one time and i bought 2 44s to replace it cause i wanted it to be louder but the muffler shop said the 44 was quieter than the 40! So i ended up running straight pipes and I love the sound IMO its the best sound my truck has ever had, I get quite a few compliments on it. But you will DEFINITELY notice a difference between a single 40 and 2 40s, when i added the 2nd one that made a pretty big difference it sounded much better. If you go with 44 definitely post up a clip if ya can id like to hear it!
