I will be the odd ball and say the BTM. I don't like engine noise like I did when I was young, now I want to hear my tunes!!! The BTM has the sound your looking for, really noticeable when driving next to walls or large buildings, not something I do a lot of, but it sounds cool. I have done some experiments and there is less than a 50 degree difference, more like 25 degrees and it isn't consistent, between the two. If and when Emissions laws are past a muffler will be required, in many states all vehicles on the road must have a muffler, pay now or pay later, don't matter to me.

live in florida, no inspection. if it has insurance and tag, they don't care. if i go straight pipe i will keep my muffler and if things ever change down here i'll just run my striagt pipe through my muffler and weld it. i thought i wanted BTM but after whatching you tube the stright pipe sounded more like the truck i saw rather then the BTM. how loud is the striaght pipe compared to a 5.0 with say flow masters? i would figure EGTs would be lower striaght but would i lose any low end?

I agree! I have the BTM on mine also. I liked the sound of no muffler at first but after a while its just too much.

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good
