      so i was thinking about changing my exuast system so it will sound more like a truck. and i know i am getting a flowmaster 40 series but i was wondering would a dual or single system sound better coming from the muffler?

      In regards to what sounds better, thats a personal decision, hence listen to the differing options.

      Personally, I think dual outs are a waste of time if its single in. Either true duals, x/h piped duals, or single in/single out.

      Doing intake and tune too?

      You're never going to find anything to make a V6, well this V6, sound good. Keep the pipe at 2.25 and it will sound deeper than a pipe that is 2.5". I've experimented with several different exhaust set ups and found that smaller pipes give a deeper sound. Probably go with a flowmaster 50 series.

      My magnaflow gets a little too high pitched at times.

      well i was also thinking of maybe straighting the pipe some or getting rid of the 3rd cat if i have one.

      but im also still on the edge if i should get the flowmaster dual and have dual exhaust or not
