Default Magnaflow/Exhaust ?????'*

I put a Magnaflow 12266 on my Bonne last weekend and I think it sounds like crap.

Is there an aftermarket alternative that is high flow but still keeps the stock sound???
I would rather hear the whine of my */C than the fart of the exhaust!!!!

I love my car but,now I'm not too happpy!!!!!!!

I don't know these things by number. Is that a Cat, Muffler, or Resonator? What'* the rest of your setup?

Okey dokey. Well, if he hasn't done the high flow cat also, that might help. It changes the exhaust note.

I'm running the magnaflow cat, muffler, and huge resonator (similar to the beasts stocker), and mine sounds great. Muted at idle, but really wakes up after that.

Changing my cat on a stock muffler (cat was the first to fail), my exhaust note changed about 10%, mine didn't turn red, but was pretty free-flowing from the insides falling apart.
