The factory ones, because they are quiet and last along time. But thats probably not the answer you were looking for wink

X2 or why not just rip it all off and run straight pipes as long as you're willing to ruin a good exhaust system.

had duels on a 96 1/2 ton short box regular cab chevy, straight pipes from the cats back to 45 deg 3" tips and it was loud and crackled very nice. i was young (19) and it was great unless you were trying to be stealthy, but on long trips it got kinda annoying listening to the loud rumble the whole way. oh yeah and i got pulled over plenty of times for them being to loud. just some stuff to think about.

How old are you?

I don't think age really is the issue. It sounds to me as if Halfnutz is giving some sarcastic cool, but very GOOD advice in not ruining a very high quality stock exhaust system. An after market system will surely fail long before the original would have. If there were real measureable performance and/or mileage gains to offset the cost it may be worth it, but realisticly it usually doesn't. Just adding "noise" will often result in more "pain" than "gain".

Just to qualify my opinion...I'm old.... I have a hotrod...its loud....its gotten me in trouble! blush

I'd don't mind a mellow, throaty rumble a little bit louder than stock, but some of these things passed off as "mufflers" are a joke. They're way too loud (read annoying) for street use/daily driving.

On my old 94 pickup, I replaced the stock muffler with a Dynomax something or another. It's got a decent tone, just a touch louder than the stock one was.

If you're looking for a real bark though, that one's not for you. I just implore to you to not make it too loud. It does get annoying after a while, not just for you but others around you too.

    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
    • Looking for any intel one would be willing to share for bass fishing on Long Lake just south of Park Rapids.  Our family will be headed there in a couple of weeks.  From what I gather its predominately a walleye lake.  I'm just trying to get a general feel of the lake and hopefully shorten the learning curve.   Thanks, BK
