    I am stuck between a flowmaster dual side exits kit #17432 .
    Priced at $310 + free shipping
    or the "Jardine" exhaust which is from what I understand the same as Doug Thorley
    Priced at $272.99 + S&H , round up to $300..

    The dual exhaust from what I understand will lose power, but sounds awesome. The single exhaust seems to gain power but doesn't sound as good.. so which would you go for? :confused:

    You'll never notice the few hp you'll either gain or lose depending on which exhaust you choose.. You will notice the sound and looks though everytime you get in your truck

    honestly idk. but im sure you have good chances at finding one. I doubt its going to be anything more or less than the others. When i get the money that is the one i am going with. The only engine mods i want is trd cai and trd exhaust

    I like the sound of the flowmaster but haven't heard the Jardine.

    getting there....
    i'd just go with a muffler of your choice and have it welded in...in place of the stock muffler. it will still sound good.

    Is the price your listing for the bolt on kit? If so dont buy it and just go buy the mufflers and weld them in place of the stock muffler.
