    A few years ago I had the Flowmaster 40 series installed without any pipe work done what so ever. Cut the stock muffler out and weld up the new. Now that I am in a spot where I can do a little more, what size pipe do you think I should get installed from the cat back to really make her roar?

    2.5" sounds good on mine, though I'm not sure it qualifies as a true "roar". ;)

    I'm pretty sure the stock exhaust on my 1st Gen (like the OP) was only 2". For my truck, migrating to 2.5" allowed it to breathe a little easier, while not eliminating all back-pressure. As I said before, it also sounds a lot better... :cool:

    Stock pipes are 2.25" no matter the gen, although I can't vouch for the 4 cyl guys. Making the jump to 2.5" isn't gonna make you lose enough back pressure that you'll feel it

    Figured that title would get some of you boys looking! :cool: Would paying the extra doe be worth the minimal change in sound and air flow?? Just wanting my truck a bit louder without buying a header.

    That loss in HP is interesting. I just checked that out. Any cheap mods i could do to regain those lost stallions? How does the deck plate mod dyno?

    the deck plate mod is the cheapest/best way to get more hp from what Ive read. Do that and leave the pipes alone.

    ^^^^^This
    Deck plates are cheap (I got mine for $15 on ebay) and it's a quick project. It gives a nice throaty sound as well and IMO brought my Magnaflow tone to a better note.

    If you're not hell bent on keeping the Flowmaster, I say ditch it for something else. Don't get me wrong, I like the SOUND of flowmasters (in particular the 50 series), but the 1st gens leave a little bit to be desired in the HP area. Hell I still have my Flowmaster on my Tundra, but when you're starting with almost 300 hp, you don't really notice losing 5 :D

    You can pick up a Dynomax Super Turbo for less than 50 bux on Amazon or a Magnaflow 18" for around $60.
