Nope , just screwing with you ... Been doing some searching bout this myself . From what I have read on the Supper 44 seems to not be that good sounding . So between the 2 prob go with the 40 Series .

I have heard some clips of the Thrush Turbo on the 4.3 . It sounded pretty good . I have one sitting here to install on my project , and if I don't like it all I am out is like $22 ..lol

Go to youtube.com and type in the muffler name you want to hear and it will bring up videos so you can hear it on the truck ..

IMO, the Flow Super 44, is just enhanced, artificial loud sound, if you want Deep natural sound, get a Cherry Bomb Extreme/IMCO, Extreme. Or a Spintech, do a search on youtube to sample these.

kinda ricey
Not At all! Once you break it in. My previous truck, a 96' Sonoma 4.3 Vortec sounded kinda ricey when I first put the Flowmaster 40 (Clone) on it, both vehicles needed about 1000miles before they got Deep, (Don't ask me Why? :dunno: ) but thats the facts Jack! The Cherry Bomb Pro still sounds Better!

Don't believe me? click on my signature link below to the sound clip of old truck, when I First put that muffler on, it sounded ricey, but got a lot deeper after that.

For the 4.3 V6, This is the closest sounding muffler to a V8, Not a repetitive boaty Flowmaster sound, like it seems everyone with an S-10 has, or gets :rolleyes: And it sounds so mellow, & natural, till you get on it, it won't attract the cops like a louder muffler would. Unless you get the Cherry Bomb Extreme for some real noise. Anyway, here it is in action, Tell me it don't sound like a Corsa?

Sounds nothing like a V8, honestly this IMCO junk makes it sound like a 3.1L Eurosport Lumina. Sadly I'd rather have a blowmaster than this on a 4.3. The Corsa comment I hope was a joke?

Well here's an IMCO on a 5.3 V8, I'm sorry if it doesn't blast out your eardrums with roar like a Spintech! Or have a loud boaty roar like a Blowmaster! I guess that the bigger the noise the more you like it? But, I think it sounds more refined, & natural then either, IMO, Plus there's no in cab drone! but to each his own, I'm done pushing it! :rolleyes:

I have an oldschool cherry bomb on my 97 Jimmy and it sounds ok. I do have a leaky flex pipe so I need to get that fixed and the muffler only has like 500 miles on it.

My 2.2 has a few thousand on the same type of muffler and it sounds so much better. Once the fiberglass gets carboned up it gets a much better sound.

LOL ok, I found the IMCO to be loud just did not sound good IMO. Like I said, it makes a 4.3 sound like a 3.1L Lumina: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2MbF7npD9cQ

That IMCO 5.3 clip sounds like a major exhaust leak, again not a clip I would use to get people to buy into the IMCO revolution!
