    i have a 2007 chevy silverado 2500hd. it has 6.0l gas engine in it and i want to put a new muffler on it. something like a flowmaster series 70 or a magnaflow. i don't want a whole new system because i think the piping is big enough and i like the stealthy appearance. any help would be appreciated.
    thanks

    I have 2x 12" dynomax bullets on my truck with true duals. 2.25" exhaust for each I think. Sounds awsome. Maybe tomarrow I'll try and get a sound clip if its decent outside.

    I put a flowmaster 40 series on my 6.0 in my 2500. Sounds terriffic and isnt too loud at driving speed. It cost me 265 bucks at summit and still has one outlet and still in the stock location. I think the pipes on the 6.0 are 3 inch

    I won't even say how much money I have in my Dakota's exhaust, but it's a Flowmaster 40 muffler and sounds damn good IMO. It'll sound great on a 6.0L I bet too.

    Big difference in sound quality between a glasspack and a Flowmaster.. you can have loud AND good sound too. :)

    With my bullets my truck is plenty loud, but it gives a good tone when I get on the loud pedal. It just doesn't make a bunch of noise and get annoying. They also "rap" very little when on and off the gas.

    I dont really have a problem with how the hearthrob glasspacks sound i am just getting tired of a loud truck. dont get me wrong i love the sound of a wide open 350 with free flowing exhaust but not on my daily driver. escpecially if i get a plow for next year i doubt my boss would let me sub with a loud truck.

    I plowed commercially a few times this year for a guy and spent a couple hours at an apartment complex in the middle of the night. No complains that I know of and I think his 6.ohno diesel even with the muffler is about as loud as my truck. He used to plow it with a straight piped common rail.

    Wont argue with your on that one ABES.

    My main daily driver still has the stock exhaust for just that reason. If I want something loud, I'll drive something else.

    A loud truck after an entire night of plowing gets old...
