Default MagnaFlow

So i'm getting th ipression from you guys (by reading earlier post) that magnaflow'* are really loud. And i amgoing for a really loud sond. I'm sick of these imports soundig realy loud, and nt being able to put up when it comes to race time. I want my car to sound as fast as it can go. But is the magaflow a good loud, or is it a really annoying, tht sounds like theres way to much back pressre? Cause i've been thining of going with the fowmaster, but magnaflow is not defnitally a consideration. Thanks for any help.

I don't know about you but I hate the rappy sound ricers give off. I prefer a deep drone over "BRRRRRAAAAAAP, BRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP, *POP* *POP*, BRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA- *BOOM!*"

My 2 cents.

I second that commotion. Are you trying to sound like a fart can, or are you trying to sound like a performance large CID V6? I personally prefer not to brag through the sound of my exhaust, then blow their shitty sounding ricer doors off to show them how stupid they are and how stupid they sound. Their mufflers do NOTHING for performance, but they think they do.

Go with Dynomax.

I am running MAGNAFLOW on my Bonnie, and I think it has the perfect sound for a V6
It is far from flowmasters, and sounds way nicer than those fart pipes. It is not to0 loud either. When I flo0r it it has a nice performance sound: makes pople lo0k twice, especially in my car haha!

I will post a video later of the CAI and my exhaust when my car is cold in this thread so you get an idea of the sound outside of the car.

And here is the video -> http://www.angryducktofuracing.com/v...akeexhaust.mpg
