Default Need help on what to do with exhaust

Ok I hav a 2000 4x4 4door blazer. Now Im wanting to do a cold air intake, throttle body spacer, header n then exhaust. But I was wondering wat I should do for the exhaust because I dnt want tht raspy bumblebee sound, I was wondering how I could get more of a V8 sound out of it if its possible. Ne helpful tips would b great if anyone has done it. Thanx!!

Theres different makes of each muffler with different sounds, Check em all out. Also when searching youtube make sure you listen to them on blazers!

I have a super 44 flowmaster and a high flow cat, nice deep tone. Aslo, IMO, skip the throttle body spacer and the headers. They don't do very much for power in these trucks. Look into getting your pcm tuned, a lot of people will agree its the best bang for your buck power mod.

I prefer stock. Any change would be remove airbox silencer to hear intake..
but I get your perspective:
Here's some more info:
4.3L exhaust/muffler poll

Yea I listened to the super 44 on the blazers, I like the deep tone a lot. So I think I'm guna get a high flow cat n tht muffler. Kinda keep it simple, no duals or nething like tht. Bit I dnt like chrome so for a tip you guys hav ne ideas? Just trying to figure out size wise wat I should go with. N I've also thrown out the header idea, read up on it n I wnt get ne noticeable gains. Thanx for the opinions everybody!!!

I don't have exhaust yet but I do have a TBS and I will tell you don't waste your money!! I installed it after my Volant CAI went on and saw no gains. They do nothing but make an annoying whistle sound everytime you accelerate. I have seen no gain in power or mpgs with it either.

Heres what I would do take and run duals with H or Y pipe which will even your exaust flow then run turbos for the mufflers.I did this to my truck sounds as close to V8 as you can get.
