Re: Ravin Z-33 Muffler.. Whos got one?

I can't comment on the Z-33, but I am running the Z-55 3" inlet/dual outlets and love it. You can get them at Midas. A word of advise though, don't go with a turn down. I originally had turn downs on mine and let me tell you that that Bi%ch was so loud it gave me a headache after 30 minutes of interstate driving. It also vibrated the truck so bad that you couldn't see out of the rear view mirror. Because of these two things, I drove straight to the muffler shop to have dual pipes run.

Re: Ravin Z-33 Muffler.. Whos got one?

It is still fairly loud both inside and out, but not like it was with the turndowns. It is alot louder than the Flowmaster 40 with duals that I used to have.

xHAWKx if you decide to get the z-33 can you post a sound clip ? I'd like to hear what
it sounds like with the turndown.

Re: Ravin Z-33 Muffler.. Whos got one?

ya i got the ravin z-55 2.25 duel and i love it, good deep mellow sound, i had flowmasters on before and i am much happier with the ravin ,both sound and performance, i notice more low end torque now,not that many with ravins that was one reason why i decided on it im really into stuff that most people dont have, and i am happy i did,although more people arfe goin to be getting into ravins im sure,keep us posted what you do,later

Re: Ravin Z-33 Muffler.. Whos got one?

I'm thinking of going to Midas here when I get some extra money and getting a z-55 and turn down with stock piping. Anyone know how much that might run me? Or have any suggestions. . .thx.

Re: Ravin Z-33 Muffler.. Whos got one?

I'm sure you'd be happy with it... it may sound a bit higher then mine does since its a 4.3. i think as long as you dont run duals you should be fine and happy with it... maybe you should go with the z-55 that might give a little deeper sound to it...
