Default Best sounding muffler?

What is the best sounding muffler on the L67? I want to stay cheap, up to 60 bucks, but I don't want it to be too loud. I was thinking a flowmaster 80 series.

flowmaster is raspier than the magnaflow which is more of a deeper tone? although, i am only speaking from 1 side of the spectrum, i have only had the flowmaster, and i loved it for a while, until the drone got to me... i will never have exhaust on the 00

there are tons of videos and soundclips around the site showing the difference

Best sounding will be a matter of opinion. Whatever you do keep the resonator.

I listened to some of the clips, I think I like the Flowmaster. I have a magnaflow on my Ciera, and like it, but I think i'll try the flowmaster.

be aware that the videos dont accurately repersent the sound....and also keep in mind that the NA and the SC cars sound different....you need to actually listen to a Bonneville in person to get a real feel of the sound

thats not nesessary. if you get magnaflow, you should probably keep it on. but i love no resonator on my flowmaster. i like the pops and cracks.

True, but he doesn't want it too loud. With a SC, high flow muff and no res, it may be too loud for him He'll never know until he tries though!
