So I have stock pipes, on a flowmaster 50 series. I'm going to buy a Banks muffler off a member. I was wondering what everyone's opinion was on this muffler, with a flowmaster y pipe, and stock size pipes. The Fm isnt loud enough for me. The y pipe will bolt in correct? And than weld it on the other side? I also need the part number for the Y pipe if anyone has it.

Is there anything else I should know or consider before doing this?

I like my Bank's muffler. You will have to have that & the Y welded in though. As far as fitting it to the OEM piping, you will need to measure it, i forget what size it is before/after the OEM Y.

I dont have a y. stock pipes are dual in single out. Ya, i figured the shop would wanna weld it anyways. I dont really care where the tail pipe ends up since its already cut right after the axle anyways.

Im running that setup right now. If you think the flowmaster is not loud enough this is not the setup you want it is super quiet. I have stock pipes into FM y to banks muffler dumped before the axle. Super quiet and no drone.

Ok, well then if you want to switch to a Y-pipe you will need the front half section of exhaust from a Y-piped T or just have an exhaust shop bend some pipe & weld one in.

Suck's i live so far away! I still the front section of my Bank's exhaust w/ the 3" Y & my '05 OEM full exhaust taking up my spare bedroom, that i want to sell...along w/ a whole bunch of other T part's.

Seriously??? that extra .5 makes that much of difference in the sound from stock pipes to the 3" banks pipes?

Maybe its just the distortion but that sounds way loud for what it is. I also have two sets of cats though. Mine is super quiet.

Yes it does. The smaller diameter helps it move faster out of the pipes. Our engines love backpressure. My setup is factory 2" pipe to the FM Y 2.25" to 2.5" to the banks 3" muffler. Sounds good makes alot of torque versuses the entire banks exhaust. Im ruining right now im gonna get a FM 70 series and sell my whole banks exhaust for like 350 or something crazy like that.
