im actually startin to change my mind bout straights. ive been hearin some vids of em with glasspacks, and they sound good. i guess the glasspacks take that edge off the sound. it sounds pretty good. ima run that. but again, idk how ima run it with the truck havin dual tanks

Powersticks are amazing and they come in all sorts of lengths so you can fit them to any application. SLP resonators are also a favorite of mine.

00rangerxlt where at in virginia are you? depending on the exhaust shop you go to they mighnt not do true duals. if all of your cats are in a straight line on 1 pipe,alot of shops wont do true duals because its illegal in virginia to change the stock position of the cats. This is why me and my buddy had to do all of the exhuast work ourselves since no shop would touch it lol

Flowmaster is so overdone and they don't sound all that great. For a v8, bullets and resonators are the best; Powersticks, SLP resonators, Magnaflow bullets

im just gonna cut all pipe past the last cat, adapt to 3in pipe, put in 8 or 16in glasspack, single pipe down the side and split it after the rear axle. the 8in is wat i like: a nice throaty rumble at idle and a wicked crackle when i romp on the gas
