Default Quick clip of my muffler

Last year I decided to ditch my stock SE muffler. I was looking to get a little more sound out of it (just a little) and I wanted something with dual dumps. I tried a flowmaster 80 and the drone at 55mph would all but drive you out of the car. I was also a little too loud for this old guy.... I felt like the mid pipe broke... I took a chance and decided to get a stock replacement muffler for a 95 Firebird Forumla with the 3.8. It'll be a year this summer since I switched and so far it'* been great! It'* loud enough to sound less than stock but it'* still totally liveable. My car is a daily driver taking me about 25 minutes each way to work. I'm pleased with the result.

Anyway, I've talked to a few members about it and I wanted to share the video clip I made the day I installed it. I've since added some stainless tips.

I think all 3.8'* do. It'* a 6 not an 8. Depending on the muffler it may mask it but it will make it quieter. I don't remember hearing it with the stock muffer.
