Re: Flowmaster vs magnaflow mufflers?

Yah swapping mufflers is fairly easy...I personally like the Pypes mufflers over the Flowmasters on the v6's, especially when accelerating. The Flowmasters sound real good at idle and in the lower rpms, especially with long tubes or an h-pipe. But when they accelerate it sounds really buzzy and droney. I've heard a couple with a catted x-pipe and they sounded decent.

I don't know if you've heard the Pypes outside the car but they sound pretty good at wot. But that's with cats...they get higher pitched without cats and an x-pipe.

Keep in mind this is my opinion, some like them, some don't. They are a chambered muffler, and are tuned for the v6's, just like the violators are tuned for the v8's. I've always liked the unique sound they give off, and I've gotten several compliments, some from v8 owners.

Yeah Pypes do sound really good. Great sound, and great product. Idle is a growling sound almost as if the car was alive. I was going to experiment but I love what I got. Thanks bro

Oh definitely experiment...see if there's something out there that you like even more...you never know.

That's what is nice about the mufflers, you can swap them in and out fairly easily.

Re: Flowmaster vs magnaflow mufflers?

The Stainless Steel Street Pro is what I recommend you check out on youtube. The companies name is Stainless Steel and obviously thats what they use. The "Street Pro" is excellent on our V6's. Also remember that Flowmaster makes the Orig 40, Delta 40, 44, 60, and Super 10. I would imagine the new FM "db Hushpower" would sound good on the V6 also.

Mufflers are over-rated. I got a 98 v6 straight pipes. Loud as hell but sounds amazing. No problems inspecting it or with police yet

I am interested. I don't know the name of the Pypes muffler you are referencing.

Re: Flowmaster vs magnaflow mufflers?

Anyone here with either flomaster original 40 or flomaster 40 series delta flow?

Im debating on those two. Delta flow minimizes interior resonance. Original 40 does not.

My only concern is the mufflers being sooo loud that i cant even listen to music...

You could dynamat the floor pans... It will cut down on road noise and exhaust... I dynamited my floor plans when I did the floor pans... It's pretty quite but when I romp on it, I can still hear the exhaust and the road noise... It'll never be quiet.

Ok. I have straight pipes on my 98. It's loud but not loud enough not to hear my music (unless I hover at 4000 rpms). So with any mufflers you should be good

The mufflers I was talking about before are the Street Pros from Pypes.

They are a chambered muffler tuned for the v6's. I personally like the sound of them. Nice, deep sound at idle, and more of a exotic, race car pitched tone when accelerating. Similar to a 350Z with exhaust, along those lines...and honestly, those cars sound pretty damn good for being v6's.

The sound does seem to change quite a bit if you have the off road x-pipe. They get higher pitched and raspier with it, while with cats and the stock y-pipe or divorced pipes the sound is deeper and more tame.

It isn't the loudest exhaust out there but I'm fine with that...a nice sounding, mellow v6 is better imo than a loud, blaring one with minimal to no sound quality.

Leave the earth shattering and ear piercing sounds to the v8's

yea i have the street pros and i gotta admit they sound sooooo sweet with the catted xpipe - now i got my exhaust re-done and im running catted straight pipes which causes it to b reaaaally loud and high rpms, so loud it gets annoying... Only at high rpms though... At other times it sounds sweeet!

Hmm well most will have it stamped onto the muffler other than that I'm not too sure unless the inlet and outlet are different sizes. When you purchase em they should have a diagram in the instructions and warranty
