Hey everyone im new to this whole forum thing but I figured this would be the best place to get the answers I need. So I just installed 2 Flowmaster Super 10s on my 2012 Chevy Impala LTZ with a resonator delete. Ive heard many different exhausts for v6 impalas on youtube and they all sound great but mine sounds kind of ricey and I HATE it. Any tips on how I can fix this any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Haha yeah most of the other Impalas that I have heard had 40s and they were a little deeper I did like that.

You're right, that DOES sound ricey. Too much rasp, especially at high rpm. I personally like the flowmaster 50 series mufflers. I have a 50 series delta flow dual in dual out on my truck. It is a little mellower than a 40 series. And definitely not as loud.

Yea I know im still looking around trying to find what would be best and I can honestly say I have never heard a 50 series muffler in person so I cannot judge on that but i will most definitely look into it.

So I have already decided that I am going to scrap those 10s and I want either the 40 Series or the Super 44s now which one is better? Which one is louder? Will I get any better performance out of them?

Do you want loud or a deeper tone? The super 44's are a bit deeper than the 40's, but your drone might be a bit worse.

IF you see an increase in performance it won't be much. Even us v8 people don't see much of an increase in performance.

Yea I thought I wanted louder thats why I got the super 10s but I guess loud is just ricey on my car so im going for deeper. But I havent done tips on my exhaust yet because I knew I was prolly going to have to swap my mufflers so Im just going to change those out and when I get the sound I like i will keep it. Yea I think I may try the 40s if the 44 has a bad drone.

what are you going to do with your 10's? and what i experienced with my exhaust when i first got my 44's put in is that it took a few thousand miles for that to go away and the tone got a lot deeper too. but yeah it was the worst at high rpm's...
