Default Welded in 2 Flowmaster 40s and it doesnt sound like Flowmasters

i cut off the stock pipe right before the cat, then added a pipe to each of the 2 pipes coming from the engine. 2" piping. no cat. the mufflers are about under the passenger seat sideways. they dont have that drone to them and barely sound like flowmasters. you'd probably think i had straight pipes with a cat if you heard it. could i possibly need to move them back further? no exhaust leaks. i did get them off a bronco at a junkyard. i looked inside and there is a little rust on the baffles. i'm assuming it has to to be the mufflers are just old, rusted and too many miles on them.

is having the mufflers under the seat a bad idea? should i move them back further? i plan to run tailpipes in front of the rear wheel so didnt want them too far back.

Rust is one issue, but also 2" pipe is a bit small. Are you sure they're 40 series?

Not sure if they're 40s. Gonna just use another set off my cobra.
These curreny ones sound like straight pipes. I hate straight pipes.
Why doesn't flowmaster put a model number on their mufflers.

found the model number.. trucks mufflers have 42441 etched on it which is the original 40 series. mufflers are probably just worn out. removing those.

found out my cobra has the delta flow flowmasters. sounds just like the orginal 40 series to me.
