I have a 1993 Suburban and am looking to get dual exhaust. I have heard many cars/trucks with Flowmasters and really like the sound of most. But I see many compliments on the Magnaflow mufflers. any one with any experiences with the two? Im looking for that deep sound when you get on it but not soo aggressive at idle. Which of the 2 mufflers and which series?

have you actually heard these in person? I have heard them on the soundclip on Flowmasters website but im sure it depends on the vehicle.

Flowmaster super 44's are ok..not enough of a differnce from all the other flowmasters that have been the same sounding in the 80's. The hooker aerochambers arent bad...pretty quiet at idle. Magnaflows come into version the oval case standard series and the round case" race" series which are louder. You are basically going to have to go to youtube and listen to trucks likes yours with different brand aftermarket exhaust set-ups

I don't like the sound of Flo Masters. They are a straight aluminum chamber, which in my opinion makes them sound quite hollow. If I were going with that type of muffler I would go with the Borla as well.

Personally I like the Magnaflow, since they are a packed design they get a much deeper, throatier sound. I don't know much about either muffle at idle however.

And don't straight pipe a Chevy small block. It is ignorant loud, sounds like ***, and takes away from your motor's life.

Unless its an all out race car..you will make LESS power and TRQ a straight through exhaust IE no mufflers..its been dyno proven hundreds of times. The engine needs backpressure. IM not a flomaster fan myself...borla is ok but very expensive.

No backpressure = Less horsepower
No Backpressure = Burned valves

Unless you are boosted. Then no backpressure is the way to go. Like my 4" turbo back. So loud, so nice.

i ran flowmaster and magnaflow on my old dodge ram, magnaflow by far beats flowmaster in product quality as well as sound, i had a 40 series on the truck and it screamed but didnt give much backpressure so you get that farting sound. i ran a magnaflow, and have never been happier. i put a magnaflw on my new truck and took the hooker aerochambers off my camar o and ran 3" magnaflow exhaust.

Even straight cats don't give much for back pressure. I wouldn't be comfortable running them. Not to mention as I stated before, small blocks sound like *** with straight pipes.

Yes actually if you still have cats and run no muffler you lose power. properly working high flow cat. conv only robs about 1-3hp. Not even noticeable in power delivery. Only reason i run a off road xpipe on my car is because its what was on there when i got it. Cats rob sound waaaaaaay more than hp. Yes it is illegal to just cut off cats but everyone does it. So oh well.
