Default straight pipe exhaust set-up

what do you recommend for a deep constant growl so that people will know its not a stock exhaust - looking for something similar to the new escalade, its constant growl thats loud at WOT
im currently setup with the 5.4 3v and an afe stage 2 intake
any suggestions would be great

love the sound it gives when around 1900rpm, 2200 and 3000
very deep, people noticed a difference, not so much in performance but sound, no so sure on mileage but when i get a tuner ill check to see what im running mpg wise

Hi there, here is what I have. I got a borla sido cat back with an electric cut out and hi flow cats, my personal thought is that the truck even with the cutout open with my setup is still quiet at idle. But then again I'm just a young dumb 20 year old punk. However she roars under load. If I where you I would go to summit racing and by a cutout and electric controller and install that. Because I like to talk to the people in the truck when I'm riding with them. Any throttle and you can't hear when straight piped. Plus I noticed when driving with the cutout open milage goes to crap and trust me I hardly go to wot when the cutout is open cuz it is LOUD! Where I live (a nicer suburb of cleveland, ohio) people look at me like I don't belong with my loud monstrosity so I like to beable to quiet the noise.

I have a 4.6L, I have no muffler at all. I only have 2 cats also. It's rather loud but I love it. I like to be able to get on it and people look at the truck...I was told just last week that my truck sounds like a mustang..haha If it was only as fast. Anyways, I would recommend no muffler if you want the noise. It is noisy when your going down the road but if you have a sound system and like to listen to it medium loud then you can't hear the exhaust anyways.
