Wink New flowmaster-LOUD!

Well not that long ago i took out my rear cats in search for some more sound out of my 18" Magnaflow but only achieved a higher pitched racer boy honda civic sound. So after some research and plenty of utube viewing i discovered the Flowmaster 13" super 44! Not only did this muffler cure my high pitched woes it provided me with such a powerful sound. I must say though it is not for everybody as to this combo has major drone at cruising levels. I also want to add that i have never owned a deeper sounding muffler on a v6 before, when cruising u could almost mistake it for a v8 until u get on it then it will sound like a v6.

Did you install the fm with no rear cat? I swapped in a fm and it was quiet at first and after 100-150 miles it got louder. Its a decent loud but doesnt compare to a v8(noise wise) while cruising. Im considering deleting the cat or going with a single high flow, but dont want to get it much louder.
I had a borla on my 4.0 5spd ranger, swapped it on to a 4.0 auto explorer and its comparable to my 4.0 tacos exhaust...lol. but removing the cat on the rangeer made a big difference sound wise...lol

I have a 13" Flowmaster on my Taco and the noise is driving me nuts. 2200 rpms and you can't have a conversation in the cab. The exhaust is turned down in front of the axle and all cats are in place. I was looking in to the 18" Magnaflow to quiet the noise. But reading this thread this won't help? I don't care what it sounds like as long as I don't have to hear the exhaust. Any other quiet quality mufflers out there?

Had the same problem on my 2000 Taco.The 14" muffler I had on it was way to loud. I wound up going with the 24" Magnaflow and it was perfect.

I don't know if they still have it, but the Flowmaster website used to detail their various series of mufflers, including how loud they were and how much drone they caused in the cab.

That said, if you're just after a quieter sound then the stock muffler works really good.

I've got a Gibson on my 99. It is a little deeper than stock, but not loud. I don't want to sound like I have a friggen Cherry Bomb on my truck.

I have a 40 series on mine, cats and all. Has a slight hum around 1500 rpms and sounds good when you lay into it. I like it. My uncle has a super 44 on his v8 dodge and I can't stand the thing. Not sure what series you have but I definitely like mine. Has a nice hum when cruising at a low speed but not over powering and great sound when you want to hear it.

The 50 series flowmasters should quiet it down. 2 of my friend's 4runners have em, theyre pretty quiet. Sounds awesome too.

I have the longest magnaflows I could get in 2.5" IN/OUT. A little on the loud side but no drone. It does get raspy when its cold due to having headers.

I went with the advice above. I found on Craigslist and TTORA classifieds a stock muffler. The rubber mounts to the factory location so I won't have to worry about hangers falling off in the middle of Baja. Now my truck is quiet and enjoyable to drive. I may miss the exhaust tones while pre-running but pre-running is less that 10% of my driving (even though I hammer my truck that 10%)

I have a Flowmaster 40 series, it's the biggest piece of shit I've ever had to listen to. I'm cutting it off and putting a turbo muffler in it's place.

Every Toyota I've ever owned I just hacked off all the stock shit cat included and replaced it with 2.25" pipe and the largest, cheapest turbo muffler Napa sells. Always sounds great, not ricey, not overbearingly loud. I put the FM 40 on with 2.5" pipe and no cat and a Jardine tip, sounds like ass. Dumped it under the bed, still sounds worse. You can hear the firing order of the 3.4 through the exhaust at like 3K rpm and it's god awful through those chambers.

I haven't tried these but plan to. I've heard they compliment many louder mufflers very well:

http://www.amazon.com/Vibrant-1140-U.../dp/B000E3VHW8

They come in different pipe sizes.

I can't understand why someone doesn't come out with an electronic exhaust blaster with a loudspeaker mounted under the rear bumper. You could choose from 20 different tones, and have a variable loudness adjustment. It could pick up a tach signal for a trigger. Then you just run a stock muffler and dial up the sound you want. Fuck, you could be cruising to the tune of a performance V8. Got a hangover? Just turn the fawker off.

That ghey enough fer ya Dell??

I had a tip on mine and it sounded "OK", but now it's dumped and I hate it. I just don't like the hollow sound they produce on most engines, just too raspy. Especially since I don't have a cat. It does sound deep, just at different spots in the rpm range than a magnaflow.

No hard feelin's yo.
