In that case, i totally agree with AJ. Go with a single inlet/dual outlet flowmaster if you want two pipe int eh back. but if you just want ot stick with the factory single, a good flowmaster series 40 woudl be good on it!

A flowmaster 40 will sound horrible on the 4.3 v6. I would recommend a 50 series at the most or possibly even a 70 series. I run a 50 series on my 4.0 Jeep, but it is an inline motor and sounds a lot different...the v6 will sound ricier IMHO. The flowmaster 70 is a little bit quieter but still opens up when you get in it.

I agree that it will have a much higher pitched sound with a 40 on a v6 compared to a v8, but i was assuming that he was looking for the noise. not the quality of it. plus to each there own. and it seems in my area the guys with v6s are runnign the 40s pretty regular.

Yeah I guess it depends. The biggest problem with the FM40 is that it is likely to drone. If you are just looking for loud put a glasspack on there or a muffler with a 'straight-through' design.

IF that is the case and you dotn want that ricey sound that comes form most V6s, I am with AJ on this one. Go with a FM 70 series. it wont be ricey at idle and lower speeds, but under high acceleration and load it will open up the sound a little.

well i got the super 40 with a new high flow cat and a 3in pipe in between them the other day. it does have a slight drone to it but it sounds pretty sweet to be a v6. its really deep and low with a nice thump to it :thumbsup:

Great choice on a muffler. I have a FM80 cat-back on my 1998 V6 Firebird, I get told all time time that that is a V8 under the hood :rofl: It sounds AWSOME!!

Im a big fan of the sound of Bullet exhaust. My buddy has one on his ranger, his dad on his f250 and I on my Tacoma. All sound great. We also all run the K&N intake which makes an even sweeter sound. Unique sound, you can tell when a truck has bullet.
