    I currently have dual 2 1/2" Hooker Aero Chamber mufflers. While they flow about the best on the market, they're equally as loud. I'm taming things down a bit, a/c going back in, and would like to quieten it down a bit for the wife. What brand/series do you guys recommend from your experience? Thanks,

    Spin Tech. Cruise very nicely. Let you hear the music with the loud pedal.

    I agree. I have the 2 1/2 inch in and out Sportsman 3000 series and like them. Very well.

    Magnaflos are real nice. A good rumble , no drone and wake up with some heavy throttle.

    Flowmaster 44’s. Deep. Not obnoxious. If you want to save a few bucks, look at summit racing. They market some mufflers under their name , like the welded race muffler in a three chamber that are very reasonable.

    I will throw this out there for what it's worth, but it sounds like you may have true dual pipes. - I have a 1991 Camaro which has the crossflow muffler like 2nd Gens, and thru the years I've had Flowmaster and Hookers, both very loud inside the car. I recently got my car fixed up and painted, and decided I wanted something with less obnoxious in the cabin. I researched around a bit and decided to go with a Dynomax VT. VT is for valve technology as it has a valve on the outlet which dampens sound at low flow, but the valve opens up during wide open throttle. After getting it installed, when at idle, or low cruising, it is not noticeable at all, which is actually a bit too quiet for my tastes, however, when you stomp on the gas while driving, it sounds pretty good and I have received compliments about how it sounds while driving. - Overall I would not go this route again, but mufflers are a hard thing to decide on as everyone has a different expectation and "musical" tastes. - I believe they make a single in/out version as well.

    Dynomax Race Bullets. She will complain, but you sure won't hear her!
