    I am wanting to get a new muffler for my 2002 V6. I am mainly looking to improve the sound. What is the best muffler to get?

    Either will do. I have a 40 series two chamber and I find it annoying to me.

    Try searching the forum first. In the blue bar towards the right side. There's tons of information out there for you.

    Also try Youtube.com for videos of each.

    And - What exactly are you looking to accomplish with a new exhaust?

    Color matched door handles, Weathertech mats, rubber bed mat.
    On my 95 Chevy 1500 I had a Flowmaster, but when a baffle blew out, I tried a Magnaflow. I thought they both sounded good, but the Magnaflow seemed to be better made in my opinion. My Flowmaster problem might have been a fluke, so you probably will be happy with either.

    id agree. However, my 40 series flow gave me a little bit of throttle response and pretty nice sound. I wouldnt mind a bit deeper though.

    Both mufflers are great, no rasp, no rice, worth the money. (depending if you get new piping)

    Or a Dynomax for power and sound! magnaflow and dynomax are the 2 I would choose.
