Default 40 and 80

Well, this is a question about preference, not performance...but I guess this is the right place.

What are the real differences between the Flowmaster series 40 and 80? I have a 40, obviously, but a lot here have 80s. What'* the deal?

Really? I didn't know lower mean louder...I thought it just meant different inlet and outlet configs.
