Default Dynomax Owners Vote!

So I'm looking for a new exhaust setup, and I have already decided on a magnaflow hi flow cat...but I am really too far away to actually hear any of the exhaust setups in person, I have just made my decision based on some videos...I think the dynomax super turbos sound the deepest, which is what I'm looking for, but since I have never really heard of the brand, how many of you own Dynomax mufflers and like the way they sound?

No video or sound clip I've ever heard even remotely compares to the actual sound. I suggest attending a meet or two and hearing them in person before making your choice.

Or flip a coin. You have better odds of selecting right by doing that than listening to clips that don't accurately reflect the sound.

Willwren is right. Sound & video clips have no comparison to hearing in person. IMO Magnaflow setups have a nice smooth & refined sound. While Flowmaster has a rumble but not nearly as smooth. I've only heard a Dynomax setup for a short time and I thought its sound was right between Magnaflow and Flowmaster.

I just ordered a Crossflow Dynomax Super for my Bonne. It will be installed within a few weeks, and I will take some clips of it.

And I'll remind everyone, as stated above by me and for years by others, that video and sound clips are not a good basis for choosing the sound you want. It isn't an accurate representation.

I have a dynomax super turbo mufflar and a dynomax high flow cat and i love it, it has a nice throaty sound, and isnt that overpowering in the cab, but i think its great for the money and sound

Heard one on a certain red 94 SSE once.. It was much different than the flow/maggie setups... I'd prefer either the maggie or flowmaster though over the dynomax if I was looking for a more classic american sound.
