Alright. And what I meant was that they have me put my year make and model in and the correct muffler for my model has 1 outlet hole but id like to purcase one with 2 of them,they have the same diameter but it says that it isn't the corect one for my car. I don't know if that made any sense but basicly I'm trying to get the one with two outlet holes so I have 4 tailpipes if that madeany sense. I'm in school tryin to type this without teachers noticing lol

I understand what your saying, and you should not be limited to just one model of muffler, where/who did you order or pick it up from?

Don't just blindly order from online, call up the company or look at their website and get the model number of that particular Muffler, and ask them while on with them, who near by you sells or orders the Brand.

My reasearch, tells me that most Stang enthuasists don't like flowmaser for one reason, it does not produce the attack sound tune. The attack sound tune is loud, and it has an attribute that allows for racers (long track) to note RPM range and shift without checking the speedo. Good thing. The Flowmaster is also racing equipment, and meets track demands for decibel restrictions. Problem is that when you step up into the 40 series the quiet approach is out the window unless you know the rpm ranges to quiet them down. Bottom line is that they are loud and produce sound volume above the 70kz (mid to high range) range. That means that if you heard a GT-500 they are tuned to sound off below that range (like bass).

I don't understand flows well enough but they tend to quiet down when extreme pressure is place on them they quiet down, dang near like no cats or exhaust systems are installed; really quiet. Guess they are more about power than sound, sometimes its about engine performance (hint).

Still, on highway speeds they are loud (fluid). Step on the gas and its the loudest thing out there (the growl loudly). Other muffler systems seem to be quiet in comparison. I always get followed and checked out while on the highway by well meaning travellers. I love the attention. Really, the 97 GT gets the attention.

Only you folks know the hard work that goes into achieving those results. Good luck.

Long readin. Feels like a english 101 class in college.

Re: question about flowmasters

If you are wanting two outlets, check out the Warlock mufflers with the straight through bypass. A couple of electric cut outs on the bypasses and you're set to make some noise without leaving the seat of your car.
