    Most people like the Flowmaster sound but they do not seem to perform as well as other systems. The 80 series muffler used on the F-body dual outlet systems is the real problem. I have a Flowmaster system on mine but it uses a 40 series 2 chamber single in single out muffler. This is more efficient than a dual out muffler because it eliminates the turbulence caused by turning the exhaust gasses 180* around inside the muffer.

    40 or 50 series for me.
    mufflers never gain much if any HP anyways.
