Hey, I am looking at some mufflers and I wanted to know the difference between the big one and the skinny tube looking ones? Any major differences?

for example like the flowmaster tubro 44's or aerochamblers to like the pypes m80 and thursh glasspack's?

just curious.

The design of them. The square mufflers flow better than you think. They tend to be quieter, and have more personality. I"m pretty sure flowmaster doesn't make any "turbo" style mufflers, which are basically glasspacks in a larger case, with 3 internal tubes. Flowmasters / the Hooker aero chambers, are a chamber muffler. Meaning there is no fiberglass filler, and the sound control is because of the different chambers in the muffler.

I had turbo mufflers to replace the factory suitcases and they sounded good until I got my headers on then they sounded really ****ty. I replaced them with Flowmaster Super 40s and its sounds great. I have a sound clip but its after I swapped my cam so it will sound different than stock.

For whatever reason I thought the tube muffs would give you the riceburnner sound? is this true?
if you are refering to tube mufflers as the kind as most risers have. Single muffler located and welded to the tip. Then yes you are correct plus most Ricers have half as many cylinders as you do. Major difference.
