Default louder exhaust

Is it possible with stock single exhaust to give it a deep loud tone with something as simple as an exhaust tip?

I think you will need a muffler
maybe even a cheap one, like a Cherry Bomb or GlassPak
but it will be loud
I used to run a set of Dual Chamber FlowMasters on my other Chevy pickups

Cut out the stock muffler and run a Cherrybomb or other glasspack.

I run a Magnaflow 18" muffler with duals that I would recommend, but it was about $300 with tips.

I have a Aero Turbine 3030 that I got off Ebay for $70 bucks and I love it, nice throaty rumble at idle and kinda like a cherry bomb at WOT without all of the popping. shouldnt cost more than $120- $140 for muffler, tip and installation.

If you want a nice exhaust tune, go with the setup I have. Stop doing hack jobs! My truck already came with a gutted cat. So it was on to step 2. I installed a Flowmaster 40 series muffler, then i installed a Magnaflow SS cat back, topped off with a shiny Gibson exhaust tip. My exhaust goes from 2.5" to 3". Its mellow, hardly hear anything in the cab with the windows rolled up.
