You can deffinately tell its diff than stock thought right?
Oh hell yeah!! Much better than stock. The stock muffler has a VERY QUIET grumble at a cold start. Mine is at least 4-5 times louder than that. But still a GREAT low rumble sound.

BusMaster got a Cherrybomb installed with his Magnaflow since he doesn't have a resonator. He was very pleased.

Well said Jim. It looks like most ppl here have gotten a Magnaflow, or want one.

Not that there'* anything wrong with anything else

If you kept the resonator you won't be too loud. Will has no resonator and he has a Hi-Flow CAT. He'* much louder and burbly than mine. If you had what I do you don't have to worry about it being too loud, especially if you stayed with a stock CAT. But a Hi-Flow may not affect it too much if youhad a resonator.

I saw a 350 chev 1995ish with a cherry bomb exiting out the front fenders out of every cylinder.. it sounded so shitty cuz at low idle you could hear the spark pattern. I dought the truck wa legal but in alberta as of now the cops only care about noise polution.. not the other kind.

Try the high flow Cat before you remove the resonator...

I don't think mine'* loud just noticeable. I had really no idea that the stock muffler was soooo big. I think the mangaflow was like half the size. Consequently that caused a little elbow grease be applied to get the tips straight.

it was $107 for the labor(about 1 hour and a 1/2) and a little pipe.

Just get the Magnaflow for the F-body Camaro/Firebird. Buy the one with the 2.25" inlets and outlets, and have the inlet flared to 2.5". It makes the installation easier and a bit cheaper.
