I had a friend whose mufflers did.

Then again, stock mufflers behind a 600HP 502CID tend to have break ins. Or should that be break OUTs He'd sit there, punch the throttle in neutral, and you'd hear the plates stack up against the back of the muffler If it didn't just blow the back out of it, AGAIN.

Well, here's what I found after a quick search.

But it's all subjective I guess. Important thing to remember is the pipe lengths, bends and muffler placement will significantly effect the sound and the MN12 has a totally different path than the SN95 and S197(which also are fairly different from each other).

Also see this thread: Flowmaster or Magnaflow?

From my experience, yes, the Magnaflow mufflers will get louder after you put a little mileage on them.

Ill bite. 2.5 inch mandrel bent, xpipe, into some Dynomax race bullets and some Jeg downturns. This is when the kit was just installed, approx. 200 miles on it. Now its fully broken in, but has a slight exhaust leak due to a nut falling off the stud for the flange. Due to my seperated shoulder, its hard for me to do it until I get better. And will probably replace the studs if I do the head swap this winter. Anywho, video.

PI cams, PI intake, Mandrel Bent 2 1/2" Duals with mid mounted magnaflow X pipe, 2 rear mounted Dynomax Super Turbo mufflers, 04 GT air intake and MAF

It's not much louder than stock. It's more noticeable because of the heads.

I no longer have by bird, so this is not my car, This is somebodys car for sale that I went to go look at. All stock just flowmaster 10's. Figure I post that way people have an idea on how they sound on a Tbird. When I drove the car the car didn't drone at all around the city, on the highway it was barely noticeable. (11:30)
