    If you are looking for power you likely won't find any. Or it will be a lousy $/HP proposition.

    Don't believe the ads unless there are actual dyno runs to back them up. If the ad says 'up to' it means 0 is the likely answer.

    If you are looking for noise making, well, everyone's ear is a bit different. Find a local group and sample the various installations.

    Better question is, which are not so good. From what I've seen and heard, dual exhaust on these trucks are not so great. They look kewl, but offer nothing else. I have a banks monster exhaust. It was very loud at first, but over a few months, it toned down and sounds much better. I think most exhaust systems will be like this as well.

    If sound is your main goal, just pick a muffler and have it welded onto the stock pipe.

    my 2 cents:

    • Had a Borla. Awesome! Loved the way it sounded and tube diameter seemed like a great match for low to mid range where my engine mostly operated. Great looking tip too IMO
    • Have a TRD now on my new truck. Loud. Especially around 1500 RPM. Bigger tube diameter than stock. They claim 7HP gain on the top end. No reason for me to doubt it but cant really feel 7HP on the top end.
    • One of my friends has a MagnaFlow on his truck and has a huge noticable flat spot at mid range. Noticable as passenger when he romps it cruising at 35-40MPH. Truck falls flat on it face for a sec or 2

    X2 save your self time and money because all you're doing is making noise, saving a little weight (but we're not drag racing here). Weld a turn down on it call it a day. Boom you have your angry sounding V-6.
