I run duel 2.5" Flowpro's, a knock off of Flowmaster's. Different motor of course, but I really like the sound of them.

My mom used to come out if she heard the dog pass gas. It's just a mom excuse to check on the kid.

And it's a kids excuse to blame it on the dog. I think a new nickname is in order.

Magnaflow FTW, quiet at idle and cruise, loud when you want it to be.

After listening to Bennys in Windrock I already knew I was going to go with a quieter exhaust. sounds good.....but you are all right, would make me batty after awhile.

On a diff subject....here's a couple picks of the fab work Kevin has done for my radiator.

Anyone run flowmaster 70 series? I am wanting something that is kinda quite, but still has bark. My plan was 2.25 back to 1 70 series then 3.0 out the back. Is there a quieter option that flows well?

I'm running dual 70 series and all I can say is I CANNOT WAIT TO GET RID OF THEM. It was cool at first, but long trail rides are horrible.

The number of bends and length of piping after the muffler can have an effect as well. Try to run full length pipes out the back, rather than a short turn down right after the muffler.

I'm thinking to run 2.25 off the headers to a single 3" muffler, but I haven't bought it yet, probably in the next couple weeks.

isnt there a formula or something for the flow that says a 90* bend is like adding 10 feet?

2.25 seems mighty small

crawl under a newer(04 and newer) 2500hd and look how big the exhaust is.
