Default What is your opinion?

Ok so I was thinking about getting an exhaust for my truck.

I found one pretty cheap, i think it was $279. I was a heartthrob dual catback exhaust.

Ever hear of heartthrob? DO they sound good?

If not, how about flowmasters on a v6?

X2!

I have never heard a hearthrob, so I really can't help you there. As for Flowmaster, I have a single in, dual out, Flowmaster Super-44 exhaust on my V6. Some people say it is to aggressive, but I absalutely love it! I pulled up to the Ford house the other day, and I had one of the Ford techs ask me if I had done a V8 swap into my truck, because he said that is what it sounded like. Needless to say I was pleased! Hope that helps a bit...

I'd say go with what you feel is the best decision man! Because in the end, your opinion about what you do to your truck is the one that really matters. And like you said, that is a good price for the above mentioned products! And I think that is cool that that exhaust has a 3.5" out pipe. That has to sound very nice! Hope that helps a bit!

3.5" out is WAY to big, you can get away with 3 out but 3.5, hell no. Whats more reasonable is 2.25 in to 2.5 out, like i have mine, it just doesnt look it because my tip is big as hell. Ive heard various mufflers in person for the 3.0. The Flowmaster is loud if you dump it right after. Dont know about if you run normal exhaust or side exhaust like me.
Go find the video of my exhaust, the muffler was $40, the tip was $40, and to have it installed at my local shop was $200. I am extremely happy with what I went with, quiet enough to where it keeps me out of trouble and helps me be less noticeable, but at times others will know my truck can be loud too.
