    You can spend all day on this one. And search is your friend here as this is a FAQ. If you are all stock on the exhaust then the Flowmaster Series 50 is a good choice as is a Manaflow and many others.

    I have had the American Thunder Flowmaster exhaust that uses the Series 50 muffler and it had a great low throaty sound. This was with the stock setup and then LT headers. Then I went to the DT y-pipe and it was awful sounding and I had to yank it. I put on the Banks Monster and it sounds the best, IMHO.

    The take away is that as soon as you change something else the sound you had could be no more.

    Yeah this has been covered a million times and it really depends on what YOU think sounds good. Check out youtube for sound clips, and if possible, stop by a meet to hear some different exhausts in person.
