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.

    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
