I like Steves system of true duals, but would probably not go to that extreme on a TBI. You can get a great sound with a single exhaust as well as much easier maintenance. I use standard 2" down pipes off of the manifolds into a 3" single exhaust system. I presently have a 50 series Flowmaster midship and a Magnaflow shorty at the rear. This gives me the sound I was looking for, but in a quiet way. I know its 2 mufflers, but I could not find 1 that gave me the sound I wanted.

Gary, was the Flowmaster too loud by itself? Or just not the right tone?

I loved the sound Ige posted up on the MUD thread - thinking of doing something similar to my Tundra when the time comes...I really really really don't like the dual angled chrome tailpipes (especially since the PO didn't balance the banks so it kinda bangs and pops as I go through the rpms)... I want to run a single out the passenger side just behind the rear wheel. Basically the same as the stock Tundra setup, just bigger pipe and different muffler.

I have true duals with Flowmaster Delta 50's on my big block 68 camaro. It is LOUD when you romp it but tolerable on the highway. I'm thinking a single Magnaflow or Dynamax for a deep mellow tone for my 40. A Flowmaster sound in a 40 doesn't seem right to me...the damn thing is loud enough as it is.

FJBrady, those pics are NICE. What muffler shop did the work? I have a guy the Colorado Springs that is pretty good with custom stuff but I might consider going up north too.

Mine was way too loud for me. Sounded great at idle, but around 1800 rpm things got nasty. Adding the Magnaflow at the back made it perfect.

I have used the 70 series RV muffler on a few V-8's and they are quiet and have a nice rumble. That's what's on the 60 right now for those that have heard it.. it also has two cats which quiet things down some too though.

It is 2 2 1/2" ins and a single 3" out.

I agree with Gary, I think 2 2" pipes from headers to the mufflers is plenty though, and with no cats the 70 series sounds nice.. it's just big.

Do you recall how much the setup set you back?

Thought I'd post up some pictures of the exhaust I had installed a few weeks ago on my 66 V-8 40. Installed by Front Range Muffler in C/S, Labor/Material/Tax = $345.00. The muffler is a Walker turbo muffler with 2.5" pipe. I'm very pleased with the results.
