I agree... I would recommend going with a magnaflow muffler (on the quiet side) and then get an e-cutout (on the HOLY SHEET side) then just flip a switch after you get out of the neighborhood and let her rip... 2x as loud as a muffler, with the convience of an on/off switch at your fingertipsAnything stainless will last. As far as loud, magnaflows are generally on the quieter side. An aeroturbine would be pretty loud. If you want louder, straight pipes or a cutout.
I've been youtubin'' the 50 series and I think I might have to go with that. Not too extreme, but definitely better than stock.Magnaflow would be your best bet.
I'd had Flows on my cars since god knows.. 1993 - and not one problem. I have had over 10 Flows.. no problem. Love my current one 50HD Series.
My buddy is the same way, stock looking truck, stock exhaust... flip the switch and people look for a muscle car lolE-cutout is the best way IMO. I have my stock exhaust with the cutout before the muffler. When I have it closed it is silent but when it is open it will rattle stuff on the walls at my house when my truck is idling in the driveway.:rck:
