Default New Muffler, oh yeah

Bought and installed a flowmaster 40 series muffler while I was down home (WV) visiting family. It sounds great, and I notice more power. Cost me $130 for the muffler and all parts needed to instal it.

Having a resonator on that car probably helped alot. I agree.....we want sound!

Not going to be much of a comparison between you two. You don't have a resonator, and he does. Really changes the animal.

think it is the loudest. However mine isn't too loud. Sounds like a throaty V8. I am very happy, and it feels like I have alot more power. I have no idea how to get a sound clip.

Okay, here ya go: First, get a big glass jar. Ball, whatever, make sure it has a airtight lid. Okay, then you go out, start up the car, and have someone hold it to the tailpipe with the lid off while you rev it up. Well, maybe you should have them do that, because whoever does it needs to make sure to put the lid back ON the jar no more than 2 seconds after the sound has been captured! This is critical! Then, just take it inside and put it in your floppy, download it, and post it. Simple as that. Now, was THAT so hard? And if that doesn't work, well, we know who the idiot is then, don't we?



Jeez, some people, no problem-solving skills whatsoever. Sheesh...

that is too funny. I can almost picture someone doing that. I also made me think of that guy in FL that captured hurricane wind and was selling it on Ebay.
