im looking for as low of a tone as possible, i dont want a muffler that screams rice. and im willing to sacrifice decible for a nice mellow tone. i was thinking a bigger case muffler would do that. any suggestions? on muffler size? and what pipe dimensions do i get for in/out on a 4.3? thanks

i want as smooth and deep of a rumble i can get. ive had a magnaflow 18" straight-thru and the idle sounded good but it was really loud and ricey at WOT, and thats what i dont want. with the magnaflow, i lost low end power and gained a little more at wot. but i would rather have more at the low end.

I can't remember the model number, but I put a Hooker muffler on mine, single in dual out dumped and it sounds great. It definitely gives it a more beefier tone, but nothing gross sounding. I've gotten alot of compliments from people (and shocked looks when they find out the tone doesn't measure up to the number of cylinders :))

before i put that on I had a Magnaflow which was too mellow for more, hardly any tone difference. And before that I ran no muffler for most of the week :) sounded AWESOME but just a little too little backpressure... good sound, no performance
