    A cheaper alternative is to change out the muffler. does the same thing that an exhaust sytem does, but it saves your pockets :D

    And to answer your question... They both are good quality, sound, and performance. If you want a sporty mid-level growl/rumble go for the TRD. If you want a Loud, throaty exhaust go for the Flowmaster.

    ya i could do that... which muffler is the best for a deep smooth growling tone...hha?
    i def dont want ricey or tin canney... and do you think the dual will sound better for that kind of tone? or does it not make a diff dual or single.. the money isnt really an issue as long as i get the tone i want

    DynoMax, Flowmaster, MBRP(very throaty) look on 4wheelparts.com

    Dual can have a mix of loudness and rumble.. but mostly the dual is to make it louder. There will be less backpressure to your engine if you go dual.

    FWIW, I believe that the american thunder cat back uses a 50 series muffler.

    These are the two that I would choose from too. It's a tough call.
    I would try to see if you could hear them in person first. Maybe someone local to your area?

    Exhausts on motorcycles are the same way. Each gives the engine it's own tone and you could either be happy with it or not.

    ok i my exhaust hunt is over i just went to advance auto and picked up a 40 series flowmaster.. if all plans go accordingly my buddie is going to weld it in for me after i get outta work 2morrow, i was reading one thing in another thread however that when you install the muffler it is shorter than stock or something and makes the pipe come closer to the mud flap, plastic that is around that area where the tip is and causes this to melt... has anyone else had this problem and should i add a piece of pipe to make it go farther out and prevent this from happening?

    id say ditch the mud flaps

    it probably wont hurt to put a little bit extra piping to make it "work"...

    They added a few inches of piping to make mine fit. As long as it's welded, it's no problem at all.
