    sweeeeeeeet...I've had great sound using Castrol Syntec. Will have to give Mobil 1 a try next time around. Where can I buy this Mobil 1 oil?:confused:




    sorry...snick...it's just that this subject is SO subjective to the user/owner that you can't quantify what sounds "better". What sounds good to you might sound like crap to someone else. Get what you like to hear and be happy with it.

    This is going to be a personal preference thing. I have the Flowmaster 40 Series, and i like the sounds of it. Others will say different, based on what they run. Your best bet would be to check out youtube and listen to different exhausts to determine which way you want to go. Hope that helps.

    If it floats yer boat then go for it. I personally don't like the sound of flowmasters and seems like everyone and their brother has one (yep, even tried one myself years ago). Dare to be different.:D



    Plus, you get to put that FLOWMASTER sticker on yer truck so everyone knows what ya got making all that noise. I hear the sticker is worth at LEAST 4.3456256 hp.

    Go here and decide for yourself. I like the sound of the Dynomax myself.
