I want to get a flowmaster exhaust system on my truck but im not quite sure how all this works and pricing. I was looking on youtube and saw some trucks like mine that sounded great with exhaust called flowmaster dumps but im not sure what this is or if i should get a flowmaster 10 or 40 series. What will make my truck have that deep growl sound. Do i need to straight pipe it or what? basically im just wondering what is the minimum amount of compents i need to make it sound like that. Allso for anyone who has done this to their truck how much will this cost? im tryin to decide wether to get a 3" leveling kit or an exhaust system

A dump out is where it does not come all the way out the back of the truck. I have the 4.3L V6 with a glasspack and single dump out right behind the cab. The truck sounds good and its throaty sound. The only downside is there is a lot of cab noise so I will be buying a single in, dual out muffler to get the tips to go all the way out the back of the truck. It all depends on the kind of work you want done. A good single in dual out exhaust with flowmaster muffler and custom work will run you around 350.00 if done correctly. I paid 40.00 to get my glasspack welded in, in place of the muffler and a turn down pipe. You can buy glasspacks from 25.00 on up from Parks Auto Parts. I hope this helps. Don't straightpipe it though, you will lose your low end torque and it will be too raspy.

So do you think if I leave the pipes alone and just get a muffler il get that deep growl. Also what would be better for me, a flowmaster 40, 44 , or 10? Also what do exhaust tips do exactly

All depends on what you want to spend. The 10 is going to be the loudest. With the V6 I would stick with one pipe. The tip is basically for looks and very little noise.

Well on eBay they all seem to be around 60 to 80 bucks no matter if it the 40, 44' or 10. I just don't know if these come with the same thing as they come with if I order them from a shop. Im really leaning toward super 44s or 10 s but which do u think would have the more deep growl while still being quite a bit louder than stock exhaust with as little drone as possible

I finally found your post, basically the 10 is super loud, the 40 is very throatty with and the 44 is still loud but deep, in my opinion if you arent looking for super loud and want a good deep tone go with the 44s, and if you dump them right passed the muffler you will have more cab noise than if you take them all the way out the back, its all about what you prefer and how loud you would like to go with it, in regards to the offset or straight it would probably be cheaper to go straight, use the exsisting pipe and go single in dual out.
