I'll let you know ASAP.
Gonna get it installed in the next two weeks.
I'm going to check with my "Uncle Bill" (...everybody'* got an Uncle Bill, don't they?...) and see if we can get some pix/sound set up so I can post them on the internet.
There'* a couple of places that have sounds to check into, but, not too many of GM'* 3800.
Mine will have the standard cat/exhaust to the MagnaFlow/ANSA resonator tips.
I have no idea what it'* going to sound like --- I'm hoping for something low and growly without any of the snappy backfiring I hear so often.
The MagnaFlow choice was because I liked the construction/engineering of the unit.
Check out the MagnaFlow site and you'll see what I mean about how solid it is. Amazing.
Part # 14266 is the stainless steel model that I went with.
The dual resonator tips are ANSA stainless steel units, chosen to assist in keeping the sound smoother.
Looks like I'm in the minority here for choosing the MagnaFlow.
Like I said, I don't know if my component choices will pan out yet.
I studied as much as I could and decided on this setup, which will require some professional and talented custom work to get the installation just right.
I spoke with the 'muffler guy' and he said I could take some photos of the installation.
He'* real sharp. I have no doubt it'll go together well.
The 'sound' will be a mystery until it'* all in and we turn the key.
