My biggest problem with the exhaust? The muffler placement at the complete end of the system. It kills ALL reverb. The dual outlet Flowmaster 80'* have different tones out of each tail pipe, gives it a lot of depth, but it'* still far from anything decent sounding...

My setup:
High flow Magnaflow Cat, no resonator and an 80 Series Flowmaster.

Best sounding setup I have heard on a Series 1 and wouldn't want mine any other way.

Good luck on your decision!

But really, I don't know what my setup would sound like on a s1 but mine is the closest to a v8 sound I have ever heard on a 3800. I don't mean to brag or anything I'm just thrilled with my setup. To everyone his or her own. But I got a hi flow mag cat, no resonator, and twin magnaflow mufflers. Its sounds just like a v8 at idle no one who isn't bonney-wise would know its a 6. But when you even touch the gas it shifts to the thumpy sound of a pushrod v6.

you cant hear the burble too well since the camera picked up the intake noise more but heres an Idea of what it sounds like.
