Default Magnaflow or Flowmaster?

I am going to be changing my mufflers out and I want the deepest sound possible. No rice-rockets, crackling, none of that. Just a nice deep rumble.

What would be my best bet?

Mods move if needed, I wasn't thinking when I posted

you asked the Flowmaster OR Magnaflow... if you would have included more options i would have said Hooker

go with the Hooker Aero Chamber mufflers they have the deep deep growl
you are looking for.
also put a 3" cat back pipe on to the Y and twin 2 1/2" pipes out the back.
if you have the stock cat, this setup will not be to loud.
if you have a aftermarket hi flow cat then it might be to loud.
but don't worry i have a secret weapon to tone it down that
will NOT get louder as it gets older(unlike Paul) j/k .
get rid of that soft front motor mount and put a solid one in.
cost of the front mount ? $3.00 to $10.00 tops. easy to make and put in.
if you can hold off getting the new mufflers, come to the WCBF '07
and you can hear the different mufflers on the cars and judge for yourself
which one you like.
