Muffler or Entire Cat-back

Wanting to get a new exhaust set up like a Flowmaster something (haven't picked what type yet) and I was just wondering if it is worth upgrading the whole system to 3 inches from 2.5. Im also pretty sure I don't have any corrosion on the pipes.

Upgrading the entire system with a high flow converter, muffler and 3" diameter tailpipe such as my Kolak Exhaust will give you a nice boost in power and efficiency.

There's good return on investment in other words. But if it's not in the budget for a complete system, nothing wrong with just swapping out the muffler to get better sound from your V8.

Is sound the only thing I will gain with upgrading just the Muffler?

One would assume so. You'd be adding the potential for greater flow in the middle but leaving restriction upstream and downstream.

One of my regrets on purchasing my '04 SE is that I had the dealership replace a rusty "cat back". I should have negotiated the price down. I did not know about the Kolak exhaust at that time. Now I have to wait until the section where the third cat would be, if it came with one from the factory, to rust out, to justify the expense. My thoughts on the subject, go for the 3" system.

Next question: and yes I have searched! What is everyone's opinion on the 40 SERIES DELTA FLOW. NOT the super 40 and NOT the regular series. You can compare the delta flow to the other ones but I want some info on the 40 series delta flow. Drone? Aggression? Worth the money?
