    Flowmaster all the way. I had a Magnaflow put on the day after I bought the truck, and I knew the second I picked it up I should've gotten Flowmaster. The shop owners are friends so they worked me back in a month later, and now I've had my Flowmaster for a couple weeks... SOOOOO much better.

    Sorry "better" is quite an ambiguous word, I should have clarified haha. I'm referring strictly to the sound. Performance-wise I noticed absolutely no difference. I'm not sure which one is better with a full exhaust system, intake, headers, and some other extras, but I will say they felt exactly the same to me HP-wise.

    The sound of the Flowmaster sounds a little more "throaty" to me, a little more opened up. So when you step on it pretty good it sounds a little meaner. I'm sure from the other side of that though you could argue that the flowmaster sounds more hollow. I personally prefer that when we're dealing with V6's, cus lets face it, they're not a V8 sound no matter what we do to them!

    In closing haha the flowmaster is slightly louder, at idle you can hear the flowmaster better. when i was standing at my engine compartment with the fan noise etc I couldn't hear the magnaflow idling, but I am able to hear the flowmaster.

    Ok the trd exhaust is made by Gibson. In the performance world borla is considered high end, more for the price than performance. The majority of cat back systems on a mid range hp car are all about the sound your looking for. For instance I have 2 stage flows on my 66 gto sounds awesome. But when I put the flows on my 02 transam I found it too quiet. So I went with an sop exhaust. It's all personal preference

    Sound is half the experience.

    Ever watched a blu-ray action movie on a big ass top of the line HD TV?

    Try watching it again with a quality surround sound system hooked up.

    It'll be twice as good.

    Glass pack is basically just a loud, open muffler you can put on. They are pretty dang loud, so the only good or bad about them is level of volume you want
