Well...after much deliberation I went in to my shop to purchase a Flowmaster 50 Delta. After several minutes of exhaust discussion with their "go-to guy" on exhaust, he convinced me to go Magnaflow. I wanted rumble, with minimal "ricey" sound as its often described here. I told him I wanted my truck to actually sound like a truck, with minimal cabin impact...but some impact
Anyway, we decided on Magnaflow for its sound (which he believed to be the closest to what I wanted) and I also enjoyed the thought of Stainless Steel, lifetime warranty, etc.
I didnt purchase for looks per se, but I knew I wanted the nice looking tips. I knew I wanted single in dual out, but I went back and forth between exits on the rear, side, side-angled, etc. I decided to match stock, but they told me if I change my mind just come in and they will move it. I definately looks sharper than stock IMO.
I wont lie...it took me off guard at first. It was a bit much inside the cabin in comparison to stock, but I think it was just the change that spooked me. Ive only driven it a few times now, but Im really enjoying it. It sounds (to my ears) deep and rich, and more aggressive with higher rpms.
Nice fat rumble to the start.
Not very noticeable change.
Sounds good. Its no v8...but its throaty.
Best arena for this setup. Sounds thick coming out of the stop.
Goes from a rich deep sound to a more...performance tone. Has a sportscar/truck sound to my ears.
Like any engine, the sound thins out at the high rpms. Sounds good though.
