Default Exhaust on a 4.2?

Anyone know what sounds good on a 4.2? Have true duals now but with oem style mufflers so doesn't sound all that great

I don't have true dual but have a si/do muffler with I think 12 long and 3 inch diaimeter tips sounds good for a v6. For the life of me I can't remember the muffler make srry.

Idk about with a 4.2 but I would take out the mufflers and run a glass pack off the headers one for each pipe if you're running true duals

Chambered mufflers and Dynomax bullets (straight through) are on my list of mufflers that sound decent on a V6.

Well I just chopped my y pipe off to run duals (redneck) but I may put it back on so that I can go back to a single, thrush makes a dual in dual out though I'm curious to try
