    What exhaust (Cat back only) No headers will sound the best on my truck?
    I want a v8 growl(or at least somewhere close) it needs to be deep and not ricey. I have searched around but what do you guys think?

    The flowmaster 40 always seems to sound the best on youtube. But whenever i hear an exhaust on youtube then in person it sounds completely different. Flow40 sounds the least ricey to me.

    I threw a thrush glasspack on and it meets those criteria. As someone said before me, you won't get a V8 sound out of a V6, but you can get a killer idle.
