ehaust question

I've posted a similar post a while back (semi-long muffler story and questions) but I have my new truck so I need new information.

I recently purchased a gas F250 5.4L triton v8 super duty FX4 and i love it! I need only to customized the exhaust system like all my previous trucks for it to be complete.

I've come into a rut.
On my:
+1997 150 i had a cherrybomb glasspack muffler with imitation dual pipes with 1 cat. converter
+2003 150 i had straight pipes with imitation dual pipes with 3 cat. converters
+2003 F250 i have stock muffler and i think 3 cats as well.
I've called 3-4 autobody/exhaust shops and asked if straight pipes or a cherry bomb glass pack muffler would be louder...and it's been known that autoshops will lie to you for several reasons (to buy their own product/version, or to cut back on noise.). I'm "not" too concerned about performance or backpressure. I "only" want to know which will give me the louder sound.

Hopefully someone can help and be honest as possible. Here is the question in short:
"Which will work better, straight pipes or a cherrybomb glass pack muffler???"

Re: ehaust question

Just to note, I care about the noise to the point that i dont go to jail b/c it's toooo loud. So that's why im asking for opinion which is better to have. a straight pipe setup or a glasspack setup? i've never had a 250 so I Dont Know the right answers.



I havent done anything to the new 250 so its stock everything. Here's a cheap paint example.



This is the ideal setup of either straight or cherry

Re: ehaust question

It's really a matter of preference. I would put a real performance muffler (like a dynomax or flowtec) on there because I think cherry bombs sound raspy and straight pipes are too loud.

Re: ehaust question

again, just like you said, it's a sole matter of preference, then.

i took sounds of each of my trucks and i'd like to know which one you think sounds better.

97 w/ cherry - http://wandrewc.com/photo_gallery/ga.../truck_rev.wav
03 w/ straight - http://wandrewc.com/photo_gallery/ga...truck_rev1.wav

(if not there, go and click "listen" >>> Life Under Viper's Rocks)

I had to drive my old truck to work the other day and it sounded great, so i think that may work.......sigh, but then again i remember how loud my 97 was (although v6).

tell me what u think after listening.
