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.
+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???"
