Default Any thought on performace mufflers?

I've been looking at many porducts from Magnaflow aswell as Flowmaster.

I'm really looking for something that provides that DEEP muscle car sound aswell as increased HP.

Any recommedations?

I've got a Magnaflow on my 91..... I love the sound....
Many people think it'* a V8 under the hood.

Thanks for the input guys, I was already pretty much set on the Magnaflo, I just wanted some feedback from both.

I definitely like magnaflow'* "wide open" performance. I'd go with magnaflow, you can have the best of both worlds.

I haven't really heard any magnaflows....but I have a flowmaster 80 and love it. Granted I just ordered my magnaflow high flow cat last night....so that ought to open up a lil more and give me a better rumble at the end.

Which 80 series is the one to get? They have three versions. One I know is not the one to get (dual to dual), but of the two left, is it the 3" intake 2 1/2" outlet, or the 2 1/2 in/out?

Also, never having installed a muffler before, would it be more worth my time and money to have it professionally installed?

A 3" diameter is too big on our cars. Go for a 2.5" inlet/outlet. This may have to be tweaked depending on the type of car you have.
What year is your Bonne? What flavor (i.e. SE, SSE, SLE, SSEi, GXP) is it?
Put this info in your sig for future reference so that it'* easier for people to help you get things figured out.
And, yes, get it installed at a shop.

Well, I recently posted a clip of my 95 Series II L36 Bonne with a flowmaster series 40.
http://www.angelfire.com/zine2/tcbcr/bonne.html


I'm not sure how this compares to a series 80 or magnaflow. Anyone have quick links to some?
