Question Magnaflow vs Flow Master on 5.7 Crewmax

I don't know if this topic has come up in the past because I am new to the site, but which of the 2 exhaust do you think sounds best on the Crewmax with a 5.7? "Magnaflow or Flow Master" I owned a Dodge before this Tundra and I had he Magnaflow exhauston it with the 5.7 engine. It had a nice deep roar. I've been going back and fwd with the 2 because Flow Master has the "dual out both sides option" and Magnaflow doesn't, but Magnaflow has the "deep" sound I like. Please share your opinions!!!

IMO magna flow sounds better but it probably won't sound as good as your hemi.

your exhaust got louder because you have an aftermarket air intake?

Price, have you checked out the exhaust sticky thread in the performance section? Tons of videos in there.

Yep. I had the MF for a couple of weeks before I install the Volant. Not only it got louder, I lost bottom end torque also

I don't know about this situation, but the Magnaflow does get louder all by itself, with or without an intake.

Alot of these high flow intakes sound like they make the exhaust louder but what happens is they add intake drone to the amplified exhaust note, increasing the overall decibel level in the cab. It's hard to distinguish though so from the driver's seat all you hear is a louder roar.

I don't know if the OP has researched Tundra-specific sound clips, but as a former Dodge owner I can tell you there's a good chance you will be dissapointed with the way systems that really woke up your Dodge sound on the Tundras. The effect of aftermarket exhausts is proportional to how loud the truck is from the factory. Dodge truck engines tend to be louder than anything else out there out of the box so it doesn't take much to really wake them up. The Tundra motor is not quite so easy to wake up. After listening to tons of sound clips the only systems that provide a sound quality I like on a 5.7 Tundra are the Corsa Sport and the Powersticks.

If the routing of the pipes is a worry, realize that a good shop can pretty much get you anything you want there with just some tweaking. You may want to consider just doing a muffler then having the pipes custom bent.


Having heard Flowmaster 40s in person, I was not impressed with the quality of the sound they produced and would probably go Magnaflow before I go Flowmaster. The FM 40 SI/DO setup I heard sounded like an out of balance washing machine, no offense meant to anybody that has them. I have been told that removing resonators can make all the difference with these systems so that's something else you may want to look into.

The cost of fuel to operate a 6000 pound 400 horsepower half ton that does 0-60 in under 7 seconds is kind of like the price of oil changes for a Porche 911. If you have to ask you probably can't afford it.

I went to youtube and looked up a few videos. I'll take a look at the videos on here tonight. I went to a local shop today and the guy quoted me @ $380 for 2 in 2 out and $450 for dual muffles. He also recommended the magnaflow for Tundra. Thanks for the help guy. i'll post pix soon as I get it installed.

I have the a 2010 CM with 5.7. I put cat back dual in/out flow master 40's on mine and it's has a nice sound to it, both at idle and with rpm's. Not too loud and not to quiet either. the only thing for me is, at first I was happy not having it too loud, but now I'm thinking I might want to make it just a little bit more throaty kind of like the titans, but will probably leave it, as I'm not unhappy with my set-up. guess every system and truck is different.
