Default Muffler/Cat

So on my truck I have an aftermarket muffler, single in/dual out. It's stock from the engine to the muffler.
I haven't found any logos on it (it was on the truck when I bought the truck) and I don't think it's actually a "high flow" muffler.

So what I want to know is if it would make a noticeable difference (hp and torque) if I put on a high flow cat without changing the muffler.
Or should I just not worry about the cat and look at the muffler?
Thanks guys.

No...you won't see any real improvement with a high flow cat unless the one you have now is plugged. I'd check the cat to make sure it isn't melted and plugged up inside.

As far as the muffler, if you can't tell what kind you have, no telling whether it's flowing well or not.

I put on a single in/dual out Magaflow and a Volant intake on my '99 5.2L and it helped with throttle response, mileage and it sounded a LOT better.

Ok.. Thanks.

On a side note, is the Volant intake the one you would recommend?
