Ive heard 4.3s that sound just like v8's. One i have seen is a flowmaster muffler but i dont know what kind? Cat back? Piping size?

I want dual straight exhausts out the back on the ends of the bumper with rolled chrome tips but i need to know what will give it the best sound..........

I know how debatable the exhaust is on these 4.3.........hit me with ideas!

Piping size? Single in single out? Single in dual out? I want it to be a deep thick sound.....not loud pingy and obnoxious......my jimmy is not a jeep(just empties everyones pockets)

1) 2 1/2inch or 2 1/4inch exhaust pipe sizing
2) Single in dual out
3) Either 40 series or super 44
4) A more aggressive cam might help as well

Now ive heard smaller piping size on a 4.3 will keep down the sharp pinging noise and give it a richer tone? This true?

I had the 44s on my f-150 before I sold it, sounded perfect. Just loud enough to make heads turn and make you look good at a red light. I plan on putting them on my jimmy soon. They have a deep strong sound.

I also have a friend who has them on his 91 s10 2.8 v6 and it sounds like a small block v8 at idle.
