I won't be buying the vehicle till next month but what kind of exhaust should I go with? I have had Flowmaster 40's on a yukon before and liked that but I want something louder and deeper this time around..so should I stick with flowmasters or go with something else? I love Borla exhaust but can't afford that LOL...so what say you?

If flowmasters were not loud enough or you go with Glass Packs, Its probably as loud as you can get while still having a exhaust on there.

When I upgraded the exhaust on my 72 El Camino I went to a non-chain exhaust shop who had a much less expensive alternative to Flowmasters. I asked for the best sound that was legal. I also ran them with 2.5" pipes, straight out the back. The only problem I had was always letting it idle while I stood at the back listening to it, wasting gas.

What kind of flowmasters? I think the only thing louder than the 40's is the super 10's.

Cherry Bomb or thrush Glasspacks... Heck the stickers you get in the box are worth the $45-$50 bucks bucks for the Loud, Raspy Muffler and classic 60's muscle car sound

True dual 8 inch glasspacks - YouTube
Had true Duel Glasspacks on my old 1983 Full-size Bronco and well would not do it now since they do get quite get annoying a few months later and on long drives the cause driver fatigue due to the loud interior drone... But if you want that classic poppy crackle V-8 Rumble then hard to beat Glasspacks
