Default Flowmaster 40'*?

Anybody driving a bonneville running with these or not. I know everyone says to use the 80,but I was just curious if anyone has one and what does it sound like. Also I'm short of cash at the moment and can get a 40 cheaper than an 80. I'm gonna keep the stock cat for now so that should keep the sound level down a bit as well. Needing a new muffler soon cause my OEM muffler has a small hole in it.
