Try the Mac one, it claims more power production. Idk if that's compared to the stock one, it looks good.

Yeah I want something clean too but it seems the flows make our cars sound "mean". I'm not a huge fan of how they make a "metal bubbly" sound, but everyone says glasspacks make out cars sound ricer. I have a single flowmaster right now and it sounds pretty good. Not to loud but not quiet. It have a kinda subtle, mean idle but really growls when you hit 2500+ rpm.

I don't really like the popping sound that the sixxers give off because it's not so consistent..

Re: Muffler time?

I have a single flow 44 and think it sounds very good for a single, planning to add another and finally dual it up here in the next two weeks....

if you have a stock v6 bumper then getting ur exhaust dumped is the best idea you can do. regardless if ur single or running duals. i got a gt bumper thats the only reason why i wanted duals and have the tips coming out back .

Personally I like the tucked look of a v6 bumper with tips coming out. I think it looks more old school muscle.

No muffler is going to make a huge difference on the stock single exhaust. If that's what you meant save your money for a dual setup or something else.
