Muffler recommendation (newbie)

Hi all. I've been browsing exhaust mufflers and looking for a little guidance on which one I should go with. I'm not a fan of the high pitch rice burn. I like a clean powerful sound... Leaning towards a flowmaster. Which brand/product would best suit me? Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

As others have already said many like FSWerks exhaust, also there is Trubendz exhaust. I am personally saving up for the Trubendz with a Magnaflow muffler and high-flow catalytic convertor. If you buy it all from them they will weld them cat on the pipe for you so that its a direct bolt-on.

ask for measurements (i wouldn't know them) from ppl on here. if you want a flowmaster muffler, get one and buy trubendz piping. not may people with a flowmaster on here. be unique

plus, how is this bad?

YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


and flowmaster DOES make mufflers for 4 cylinders...

I had a flowmaster on my car at one time. It just doesn't sound right on your motor man.. it sounded like crap
And mine was the one they make for a 4 cylinder. Our cars and chambered muffled just don't get along.

Ok for your clarification, The flowmaster mufflers designed for 4 cylinders are chambered.... The only flowmaster mufflers that aren't fully chambered are the hushpower series.
And even they are semi-chambered:



Thus my previous comment why flowmaster does not sound good on our cars...
