Heh... funny...

You can run a flowmaster 40 and cut off the tailpipe a few inches after the muffler. Its got a deep, load growl.

I use a flowmaster 50 and turn down pipe (about 4") and its pretty loud. I'm used it it now.. Here's a sound clip:

just less backpressure to the engine, if you consider that a problem.

Like loss of power, mileage, possible head damage?

I think certain older GM vehicles could do better without the cat or muffler, but, with newer trucks I wouldn't do this at all for several reasons!!

Kill 2 birds with one stone and throw a set of headers on; it will open up that s/c and give you a little more rumble at the same time.

Edit: not as easy as "throwing" them on though....

check your emissions laws!.. my county here in Ga a cat is a requirement, it will fail if I take it out. but im kicking around the idea of chopping my pipe a few inches after the exhaust.. itll make it louder, wont hurt the engine? and i can wels it back on if I need to then i can put in a flowmaster when i get money.

get some headers and after the mufflers put larger pipes on it and you will get a nice deep noise

if you don't care about emissions then take your cat out and leave the stock muffler, it will be somewhat louder and still deep and clean sounding
