I love mine, It'* got the idle rumble I want, and keeps its' sound throughout the rev band. Most performance mufflers are within 5% or so performance of each other, So you should pick your muffler by sound.

Look up BonneMeMN and go to his website. He has many sound clips of the different mufflers.

Yea, starting up my flowmaster sounds awesome, then just letting it idle. It can definately turn heads. Magnaflow is the proven best performance gain though, but only by a small percent.

Make sure to get a high flow cat and a custom air intake. Without the cat the muffler is just sound, and the intake add the main performance to the exhaust. More air in, more air out type of thing

In the sig, bud. I went strictly for performance, with no regard to sound. I MIGHT add a resonator later, as long as it doesn't cost me flow or performance. Your car already has a factory resonator.

I had just got a flowmaster 80 series with tips and a catco high flow cat. For those of you who have this muffler how did you mount it in place of the stock muffler? Pics and some input would be great

Muffler Shop. Costs around 70 bucks because new pipes will have to be fabricated for the dual outlet on the 80 series.
