Default Best muffler ive ever heard!

Best sounding muffler ive ever heard was on my buddy's Trailblazer SS it was an aeroturbine make, granite its a high output 6.0L but i think it would sound good on a 4.0L, would really like to hear one on a Ranger.

Aeroturbine resonated mufflers.

Factory clear coat has some orange peel to it. IMO it's why metal or glass flake is added.
I think the exhaust makes the engine sound - more like an engine. I lets it use it's outdoor voice.

all vehicles have orange peel off the factory line. They all have mild orange peel or worse. People wet sand there cars with 1500 grit sand paper to get orange peel off then they polish the paint clay bar then wax then no more O.P. Honestly i don't give a toot about O.P so i don't care but your buddies looks like he takes care of his paint. But its just on recording so up in person may be different.

Who wants a minivan with an obnoxiously loud exhaust like that thing? To impress Walmart employees on break?...won't do it.

Almost everyone where I live runs those on their silverados. They sound really similiar to no muffler. I prefer a single chamber flowmaster as those are too obnoxious for me to be driving around with my lady

My old boss had a Borla on his trailblazer SS... I think that sounded better than this one, but thats my opinion.
