I know this post is newb, but trust me I have researched..

In the market for a new exhaust which has turned out to be not very easy decision. Been all over youtube tryin to hear different exhausts and have I think narrowed it down to
Flowmaster 44 series
Magnaflow 18"
Decent choices in your alls opinion?

Anyway, local exhaust shop said he can do the Flowmasters installed with chrome tips for $400. Is that a decent price or am I being bent over?

me personally i like magnaflow over the flowmaster just becaust it has a low deep rumble and also sounds good at WOT unlick the crackly sound of flomaster

Magnaflow is a straight through design so it has almost no flow restriction. Flowmasters are chambered/baffled design so they don't flow as well as the magnaflows. Magnaflow will give you better performance definitely. Magnaflows are also all stainless steel, flowmasters I don't believe are but not positive on that. What sounds good is your opinion, some like flowmasters, I like the straight through muffler sound. In my opinion, it's acquired, so whatever you have you'll end up liking. There are other choices as well, dynomax is another straight through type... $400 seems slightly steep...especially for flowmaster, but then again tips aren't cheap. I assume you are doing single in/dual out with dual tips?
