Re: Muffler debate

Man I love my mach 1 takeoff's..but whatever floats your boat. Turbo mufflers sound pretty good on a v6, I have a friend who has them on his and it sounds pretty good.

Re: Muffler debate

It's a very subjective opinion.

I have Magnaflows and really like them.

Re: Muffler debate

In my opinion Magnaflows will give you the best low toned rumble that most people love turbo mufflers are ok until you get to the high RPM's and then sound like a fart cannon

Re: Muffler debate

To me the mach take offs sound to ricy.... I like my flowmasters, oddly enough..... they sound better than 99% of others I have heard.

Re: Muffler debate

my flowmasters have about 5,000 miles on them(about a year old) and the dynomax i can't remember. they've been sitting in my garage for a couple years. the dynomax aren't very loud, so that's why i went to the flows but i'm tired of the tone.

I had an exhaust leak at the time...didn't help the tone any, they sound completely different now, nice and deep and low, I love it. They aren't quite loud enough for me...but I don't want the "hey, look at me, I'm speeding" mufflers around here, they just attract cops.

Re: Muffler debate

Jones mufflers on a v6 = . And right now everyone is thinking what are jones mufflers. Ask your muffler shop about 'em. They have a nice low rumble (especially for a sixer) and a gargle when you rev and decelerate. I've had many mistake me for a gt just based on my sound.

Re: Muffler debate

I don't get any crap from police for my car, then again, im almost one of them ...o/r x and 'packs a LOT louder than i had wanted...been looking at the steeda side exit possibly.

I liked my MAC catback i had on my v6, had a nice inbetween sound of the flows, and magnaflow, etc.

Re: Muffler debate

I thought it was funny, when I was picking out my exhaust I listened to sound clips. And I thought the MAC souonded better than the Borla. And it's about 500 bucks cheaper too.

Re: Muffler debate

I had turbo pack mufflers (little round mufflers that are not really a muffler) on my 97 v6, they were ok.... I wouldnt go that route... and also before I had a balancer pipe put in the sound was louder, so if yours is a tad loud, that little 30 buck expence may make it sound right.
