LMAO!!!! That guy is funny in everything he plays in.

I agree with both of you guys. I have always heard that straight through designs like Magnaflow are more likely to provide a performance gain than a chambered design like Flowmaster. I am a little skeptical of any noticeable change from a simple muffler swap but who knows. I wonder if maybe the louder exhaust makes it seem like the truck is working harder and should therefore being going faster when in reality it's working the same as it always has, just making more noise doing it, lol.

All that being said, I ran a Flowmaster on my 2006 4.7L quad cab for a year and then swapped to a Magnaflow. I could swear the truck seemed more responsive after the swap. Maybe I'm a victim of the very mind game that I was discussing above!
