Default Bought some Magnaflow :)

I just bought a Carsound Cat and 5x8 Magnaflow muffler with some tips and was wondering if this was a pretty good buy. I was originally going to buy this Full Boar brand muffler but they were out of stock and those mufflers claimed to flow better than flowmaster. Is Magnaflow somewhere up there in terms of performance and sound?

In terms of performance, it has a slight edge in flow and HP over Flowmaster. Some prefer the Flowmaster sound, but my personal opinion is the the Magnaflow sounds great. However, the 93 never had a factory resonator like the 94 and up, so you may want to consider adding one later.

I can vouch for the magnaflow sound on Bills car. Nice and rumbly with a resenator, without was bit raspy or frappy?

Christmas came early!

Tips are actually bigger in real life than they show on the camera. Much bigger! Muffler should be here Thursday. This will be a one sided dual exhaust in the stock location.

N10? Dont know what that is but yea I think I know what you mean and yes thats how it will be. I figure it would be best to have both pipes exhaust nearly the same amount of gases for better sound and so they both get dirty the same. I like the look better too, it reminds me of a nice BMW with the square tips.
