Default Quiet muffler where to get one

Not quiet performance, so quiet that I don't know it's running. It's for a 350 in a truck. Also what is the pipe size I should use to achieve this.

I just always go to the local muffler shop and tell them what im looking for and they do a great job at making that happen most times. If you want quiet then the offbrand OEM mufflers are a great replacement. I put a magnaflow on my grandpas truck and it idles very quiet, and has a nice tone when you get on it, he loved it so that also may be something to consider.

The reason I ask this question I live in a small town with one real muffler shop and I've been taking my shit there forever. I had a nice walker put on 6-7 years ago came with lifetime replacement warranty. I was happy with it but it wasn't total quiet. It needed replacing last year so I go in and I assume it should be free and I pay for labour. I mention this before he starts and when I'm done he gives me a bill for $300 saying that he decided to bump it up to a 3" muffler from a 2.5 or 2.75 not sure what, so my warranty doesn't cover it. The usually wtf and so forth goes on and eventually I pay for just labour. I pull out of the garage and start driving and realize that my truck now sounds like a damn monster truck. I crawl under and see that I now have a no name garbage muffler that he probably paid $5 for. I go back and tell him and make sure he knows that I want a QUIET muffler and a walker and he puts on something else. I leave again in my truck with some walker sound fx thing that is just as bad as before and now has a good leak somewhere. So after this I decided that I need to do all my own exhaust work and am now looking for advice. My biggest question is can I achieve quiet with 3" or should I drop it back down.

drop it back down if it bothers you, 3" will be louder IMO. Honestly based on your story, I would look for a new shop to take your business to.

Either way it should have been under warranty. Even if he switched sizes and part numbers. I deal with Tenneco(Walker, Dynomax etc.) and if the muffler comes with a lifetime warranty (not all their part number do) then they will warranty it even if they put a different part number on it. As far a size goes that shouldn't matter. Do you know what part number was originally on it or the one he put on it? The higher the first 2 digits in the number the better the muffler. For example a 18216 will be louder than 21046 muffler.
