    I voted Flowmaster. I had a super 40 now a 10 series and love the sound. Mine is dumped after the axle and have zero drone. It's all personal preference though, only you can decide what sounds good.

    i voted other....keep it stock or take muffler out and be loud. imo i have had a flowmaster, then went to no muffler, then got a magnaflow glass pack....i loved it with no muffler it had less drone than my flowmaster but it was louder accelerating. i really dont like the sound of my glasspack and regret spendig the 30 bucks on it. just stay stock unless you want to make some noise. other than that i think that magnaflo sounds good but it kinda sounds like a fart. at least on videos wish i could hear one in person

    yeah, sorry that video is such lame quality. sounds 100x better in real life. pops a lot too when i back of the accelerator. under 2000 on the highway it's essentially silent, the road noise drones it out. however it gets loud around 2500 and up. i love it.
