If you're thinking about a straight through system, look into the pypes mid muffler system. I had them, with the stock H and before I got long tubes, and they sounded real good.

Mac Boomtubes sound awesome.. had them on my '07, they are the best. I did those after doing the CAI+tune and suddenly i wanted more mods. The only mod that made them kind of bad was the 4.10 gears in an automatic at 75-80mph had some drone.

midmufflers and boomtubes are great axlebacks/catbacks
but if you're deadset on flowmaster, give the outlaws a try.
i haven't heard these in person, but they are straight thru and supposed to be the loudest of their AB.


flowmaster also has the hushpower which are straight thru also, but not as loud.
KR mufflers are a great choice as well.
but i want to try those flowmaster outlaws myself.

I like that my Boomtubes are relatively quiet until I hit the gas, then they are not quiet at all

If you want a deal on some American Thunder axlebacks I have a set I just took off my car. They were on my car for 18 months and less than 5k miles. Just PM me.
