picking a muffler for my wk
 
I have been wanting to put a new muffler on my 05 wk and i was thinking flowmaster until i saw a video of a 4.7 with a vortex and loved the sound..any inputs or thoughts about the vortex muffler would be great!

Posted by sterquort - flowmaster mufflers2011 Ford Mustang V6, 2.25" Force II Axle-Back DORWake up the performance and sound hidden in your V6-powered 2011 Mustang with a Flowmaster Force II exhaust system. These moderate sounding systems retain the dual exhaust system outlets and are designed to replace the original rear mounted mufflers using factory hangers and connections. With easy fit in mind, these systems are mandrel bent for maximum performance and include specially tuned mufflers.As a Force II system, it delivers a moderate exterior tone and a mild interior tone and is suited to the enthusiast who wants a subtle but distinctive exhaust note.Like all Flowmaster systems, the benefits include improved throttle response, power and mileage. The kit is a true bolt-on and includes everything you need to easily install at home with basic hand tools.* Mandrel Bent 16ga 409 Stainless Tubing* Aggressive And Powerful Exterior Exhaust Tone* Incl Hangers and Hardware For Easy Installation* Connects After Factory Catalytic Converter* Dyno Tuned for Maximum Performance
I have always used flowmaster on my vehicles, they have served me well.

from what i understand flowmaster muflers use baffles and magnaflow is more of a free flowing glass pack. i know flowmaster is louder during idle, where as magnaflow is pretty quiet at idle until u throttle. i have also heard of people losing power and gas mileage with flowmaster with the oppisite of magnaflow. soooo i have had both and fopr now on will only use maganflow!!!

I went with the 18in magnaflow in stainless for my 4.7 it seemed to be the most popular and I am VERY happy with the sound.

i had an 18" magnaflow and took it off for being to loud in cab, it roared at 70mph.i replaced it with the 5"x11"x22" magnaflow and have been very happy.sounds great at 2000-2500 rpm and when you get on it but is fairly quiet a cruising speeds.i have a wife and 3 kids and it doesn't bother them.if you wanted an inbetween sound go with the 5x8x22 magnaflow.use your stock pipe 2 1/2 inlet 2 1/2 outlet.mine is offset inlet and center outlet if i remember right. i bought the universal muffler and got it installed for under $100. great mod for money.i also have 4.7L engine

Flowmasters are great but drone really bad on the 4.7 and 5.7. I have a magnaflow and i love it, its loud and deep and burly sounding but it does not drone at all.
