Do you really want to be loud to scare them? Isn't it more fun to show their friends what a gramma mobile can do to their farting hamster of a civic?

This comes from a guy who'* just dying to see his first fartmobile to make them say what the when I show off my new whine (It'* a stupercharger thing)

Hey..I like that...new sig...coming up

Actually, the car used to belong to my cousin. He let one of this crackhead friends borrow it for a short trip (with very low oil). This friend ended up going to St. Louis (some 75 miles away) ...and well, that'* all she wrote.

Yes, in time. (as the $ comes in)

*edit*
And to be fair, I have seen some Tempos that can move... of course, they were the pretty rare V6 Tempo and have been tuned up quite a bit.

Magnaflow Magnaflow, Magnaflow. The F body muffler with a 2.5" inlet, and two 2.25" outlets. An inlet and outlet on one end, and an outlet on the other end (crossflow, just like your stocker).

The sound of the exhaust will be throaty, rumbly, and slightly burbly at exhaust, but really wake up when you stomp it. Ricer pipe intake mentioned above (simillar to the one in my sig pic below) will also allow a bit more noise under load. And you'll feel the kick in the shorts when you do it.

Rice pipe makes a big difference. I'll be posting pics on how to clear the compressor.

By the way, can anyone link me to a sound file (or video) of a 95 (or higher) bonneville with a flowmaster or magnaflow on it?

check out http://www.zzperformance.com/articles.php they have some good info and good products also if you want to get better performance you should eather get PEM (ported exaust manifold) there might even be headers for your year but i would hve to look around

You might want to check the pipes and see if they are starting to rust if so you should check with some shops to have custom bent 2.5 pipes put in and eliminate the U bend in the pipe also
