Feedback on muffler system

Hi guys and gals !!

Ford baby !!! just new to this website ! boy its a awesome website for only ford !!!! yeah baby !!!!

okay. i just purchased 1998 ford expendition ! its a blue thunder baby ! 1998 blue and its 4.6 ! i have been investing a little money into this.. but my birthday was recently so i have some buckaroo about 200 bucks ! um im thinking about upgrade my muffler system.. i have been hearing pro and con about muffler system doing dual or single..

Since im on tight budget.. i would prefer for single muffler..
anyone have suggestion for nice loud mean sound muffler ? i went to muffler shop they r charing me 180 bucks for flowmaster with my stock tailpipe !!! what ya think ??

I went with the Gibson Side-swept cat-back on my 1998 5.4L. Not too offensive sound-wise, but VERY noticible power increase. J.C. Whitney was about $289.00, installed it myself. Really easy to do. Alternately, header installation on the Expedition is a beast . God, what a job!! If they charge $300.00 for labor, it's probably fair. $180.00 for the muffler & install seems a bit high. I'm almost finished after two days...

Thats about the same price I paid for my Flowmaster 40 Duals. My truck has a very throaty roar. Take a look at the site under my signature, Ive linked the websites to all the mods on my truck, you might be able to find some more info there. Also there are a few more Informative ford boards.

Hope this helps!!
