Some mufflers that i have heard good things about are dynomax (atleast I think thats what their called) also flow masters have a nice sound to them. If you want to go old school put some dual glasspacks on.

Depending on what motor your truck has will make a big difference in sound, such as a V6 and a V8. I had a Chevy Silverado with a stock 350 ci and a stock cat back system with a Flowmaster 40 series delta flow with duals out it. It sounded good, loud on acceleration but quieted down when it dropped into a higher gear. It wasn't as deep as I wanted but it sounded aggressive. The whole setup cost me $178.73

You wouldn't be able to stay in it with Flowmasters.That would be LOUD!!But hey,that's okay.I would go with glasspacks myself.They are decently quiet at idle,but man do they ever open up when you put your foot in it!!!

Purple Hornies :)

I have purple hornies installed on my 71 350. I have headers with the 24 inch non-turndown hornie. It is really deep and idle and mild accel. but when you stomp it, WHOA!?! they are really loud and sound extremely good. Only way i can think to describe it. Go with the purple, they wont let you down.

good mufflers

I like the flowemasters they are the best sounding muffeler for the money and they will get loud if you put your foot in it. I have mine on a big block ford and they sound great. I dont know about the hornies but I think glasspacks only make noise and do not give the vehicle any appeal, but that is my opinion.

Yeah go with flowmasters seeing as though everyone has them and they cost 4x as a glasspack like purple hornies. I could have gotten flows but opted to be different and just bolted the PH up to my headers but hey, different strokes for different folks right?

Flowmasters are good mufflers.It's just that everyone here in town has them if they have any kind of modified exhaust system.I have one more question..

How would one of those Purple Hornies sound on a 2.3L 4-banger in my 1992 Ranger?
