Been doing a little research on exhaust systems for my Ford f250. It has 460 in it. All the manufacturers claim more horse power, more torque, and improves miles per gallon. I want all that and a good (not to loud) sound. Thought I would check with my panel of experts (you) on your preferred brand, results, and why you recommend it. Thank you, and carry on.

I like Dynamax or Flowmaster dual stage. The Flowmaster single stage are to loud in my opinion but the dual stage sound deep and throaty. Dont expect to see to big a fuel mileage difference though.

Trade for a Chevy! LOL Problem solved.

I knew I would get some responses like that. :grin:. I did look at a lot of Chevy' s before buying the ford. Matter of fact this was the only Ford I looked at and was in the best shape and was not sitting over a puddle of oil.

Getting a aftermarket muffler will do nothing but make noise. The little bit of horsepower that they claim, you will not feel in a heavy truck. The nice rumble you hear will get you worse gas mileage cause your foot will be in it to hear it. Now if your getting longtube headers that'll be a different story. If you are getting a flowmaster muffler get a 3 chamber for the less resonance in the cab.

I go with a 2 chamber flow master's. with twin tail pipes. i got one on my 1995 ford ranger and it sounds so good with it. And when i get this 1969 Chevy C10 running good i'll have a set put on it.
