Magnaflow vs. Flowmaster

Postby Magic Gini [OP] » Feb 26 2014, 5:31am

Hey guys i know there are a ton of these threads but none of them really have what I'm looking for or I find conflicting answers!

So basically what I want is a muffler that will have a great sound, turn heads, set off an alarm or two, but not be so loud it annoys the hell out of you driving down the highway. I LOVE the super deep throaty sound opposed to the screaming sounds on a lot of mufflers.

So long story short I'm looking for a muffler that has a nice deep, throaty (somewhat loud) sound on the outside, but doesn't have TOO much interior.

I hate the racy sound, its gotta be deep and throaty. I don't know if i can get the sound I want without cat-back but thats what I'm hoping for (I got a budget here :p)



p.s. This is my truck, the sounds gotta match the look! :mrgreen:

Thanks, I've seen a lot of these, the problem is that you can never really tell in a video, and they don't have interior sounds or anything. I've seen like 3 different people all have the same muffler and each video sounds completely different haha

I have a short Magnaflow now. It's a great sound outside, but it is very heavy on the interior drone. It's also about to be replaced because of the drone. After 7 years, I can't take it anymore, and my wife hates being in the truck as well.

I've heard great things about the Magnaflow 18 and 22 mufflers. I had my exhaust guy show me a setup with each system on a fairly similar truck, and it was a pretty good sound. Neither sounded bad, I just want something different, and am leaning towards a Corsa system for my truck.

Ive worked with both blowmaster and magnablow...they both rot out fairly quick if you ever see any kind of weather..

I am more of a fan of flowmaster than i am of magnaflow. I was in a shop that only did magnaflow and i got so sick of hearing them.(personal experience/personal opinion)

Flow master might gurgle but so doesnt the best wife/ gf...lol

Flowmaster all the way. I've never heard a Magnaflow that impressed me. Flowmaster has that classic sound that is unmistakable and my Flowmaster 40 DEFINITELY sets off car alarms, lol.

I have a magnaflow on my truck, love the sound, I have heard flowmasters I liked, but most of them just sound too choppy for me. It depends on how throaty you want it i guess, but the other thing is flowmasters put ME to sleep driving, so the magnaflow was the way to go. hope this helps.
