Default What exhaust should I go with

ok so I've had my truck about 2 months it has amagnaflow dual exhaust kit I love how deep it sounds it's just not very loud once you get past 50 mph thinking about true duals (no x pipe) with dual super 44 flow master mufflers keeping the magnaflow stainless tips... Any advice on what exhaust has a loud deep deep deep rumble at idle and not bad sound at highway speed I don't care how loud it is in the cab I want loud and deep

If you want deep stick with the Magnaflows. Just delete the cats. If still not loud enough go with shorter Maggie mufflers.

Take off all your cats and replace two of them with magnaflow high flows. Problem solved and it will still sound great too.

Borla FTW, one of the best performing and tested mufflers hands down.

Edit: here is some good data to dissect.

rules of thumb:
chambered mufflers dual exhaust = H-pipe
straight through mufflers dual exhaust = X-pipe

Both aid in savaging and improve performance.

Won't this throw the check engine light though? This is California were talking about.... At least I think. Right NorCal screw? I just switched my flow master to magnaflow thinking it would be louder and it's about the same. Mine also exits in front of the rear passenger tire.

I'm taking a stab here as i don't know the exact nature of the **** california emissions requirements.

But im guessing this is what's reqired:

all cats
all o2 sensors
EVAP
EGR
A muffler which is not obnoxiously loud
pass sniffer
no CEL's

You shouldn't get a CEL changing mufflers. The only reason you would get a CEL is that you modified or moved the cats or o2 sensors without re tuning the truck.
