Question Truck Guys, Dual Exhaust Thread

I have been looking around at getting dual exhauts on my truck. I have looked on the F-150 forum and it seems most of them recommend the Roush Off-Road exhaust, Magnaflows, and Flowmaster as being last...What do you guys have on your trucks and what do you think of it? I have also read with the flows at a certain highway speed it sounds like crap...I am new to working on my truck and I know there are a lot of people on this forum that have done stuff.

I've got Magnaflows on my F-150. I can't remember the part # but they exit in front of the rear tire. The setup looks alot like whats on the Lightening. It sounds really great too, not too loud plus it weighs 28 lbs less than the stock pipe.

If I'm not mistaken, the dual chamber mufflers are louder than the ones that go straight through. Are you looking for loud pipes? There are a few sites out there with sound clips, those help alot.

Here's a pic. I doubt it's the exact number you would need to match up to your truck but at least you know what I'm talking about.

I know it sounds "redneck", but you can have something that sounds just as good or better and makes as much or more power if you have a muffler shop or "guy" in your area that custom fabs them. And they're usually way cheaper since the routing is relatively simple.

I'm not talking glass packs and huge exhaust tips, btw. Nothing retarded.

I have a mustang with flows. I don't know about the 5.4 V-8 but the flows on the 4.6 have a tendency to get a nasty vibration that resonates through the entire car around 2200 rpm. That was with high flow cats. I removed the cats and its a lot better now.
