I heard an exhaust clip of it and it sounds sweet. It'* not loud and obnoxious at all, it just sounds low and rumbly . In all it just sounds awesome and muscular. gotta love it!

I have magnaflows on my GP STE. I just put them on a few days ago, and they made a huge difference. (but my stock mufflers had big holes in them, so it sounded crappy anyways) They are straight through mufflers, so they flow REALLY REALLY well, almost as if they were straight pipe, but they aren't very loud at all, much quieter than you would expect for being straight through. The car sounds very deep at idle, but its still quiet, not that wake up the neighbors noise. Then when you rev it up, it doesn't get any louder, the tone just changes, and it still says fairly deep and makes it sound a little like V8, which is quite an accomplishment for my little minature 3.1L V6. Its not like most mufflers that sound deep at idle with a V6, where when you rev the engine up past 2000rpms it sounds like a 4 cylinder. They sound very nice, and I am very impressed with mine, and I am more and more impressed with them everyday. You can't beat the lifetime warranty either. Mine were $45 each, which I think they were WELL WORTH for what they are. If thats what you think you want to get, GET THEM, don't change your mine. You won't regret it.

Ya..I got dual Magnaflows...its unreal the sound...esp at 2500 RPM..ie cruzing...just great, rumbles but not raspy, the rods are welded to the body so I get this nice aggressive vibration a bit..

sounds great...

Dual OWNZ!

i love it, there is a slight drone around about 70-75 mph, but you get used to it and it sounds great when you get on it.

I love mine, nice beautiful deep tone, excellent idle tone. It doesnt drone for me, at least none of the speeds i cruise at. Magnaflow is a good choice
