    I have Flowmasters on mine. Stock exhaust manifolds & stainless factory style pipes. Everyone says they sound great as i speed past them.

    I don't like anything with packing, having said that I like the Flowmasters.

        I like the sound of the Flow master myself. Have put them on three of my vehicles.

        I run the X-pipe with the full exh system. And I use the Dyno-Max Ultra-Flow mufflers as I race through the exh system. I like the sound of the Ultra-Flows and they are basically straight through for the best performance since I race through the full exh. Here is a clip of mine at idle pulling away on cruise night.

        This is my brother and I racing but I am running the full exh system on my car and you can get an idea how it sounds when I floor it. For the first second or so when I launch you can hear just my 63 but then as soon as it gets real loud a second or so later thats my brothers Cuda with open headers. But you can get a quick idea how the Ultra-Flows sound floored behind my 440/493. Pay no attention to my niece talking. Ron

          Which Flowmasters? 40, 44, 50, or 55? I have a 55 on my 5.2 Dakota and really like it. Nice V-8 tone, not to loud. I paid 160 bucks for a pair of Magnaflows for my 72 SSP 440 and an kind of disappointed with them. Louder than the FM 50/55's and sound to much like cheap glass packs too me especially for 160 smackers. I have a new pair of Flowmaster 40's which are louder and a pair of Dyno-Max's still to try on my 71RR and 71 Dart.

          I personally hate the tinny rattle of flowmasters.

          I have magnaflow on my Dakota and I love the sound of those.

          I've also run dynomax and like those as well.

          I am the same here. FlowMe's don't cut it as a nice sound. Very agitating. Besides...Everyone and their Brother is running them. Doesn't matter what Marquee of a car they have. All I ever hear is FlowMe's. DynoMax or Merrimont are far better IMHO...cr8crshr/Tuck

          I might add that my Satellite has dynomax knock offs (exact stampings minus logo) and those sound pretty good too, esp for a stock 318-2 with manifolds.

          That one gets more "sounds good" comments than the Dakota.
