muffler comparision chart / other exhaust info
You need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view, CLICK HERE to download it

This compares the power difference in afew popular mufflers, along with their measured sound levels (decibels, or Db). No it is NOT a flow comparision, it is actual power from dynos, all on the same vehicle with the same setup except for the mufflers (obviously).

I didn't graph all of them because it would make the chart hard to read, and most weren't worth mentionng. PM me and I can compare any of the following:

Bassani Real Street
Borla XS
Borla XR1
DynoMax Ultra Flo
Edelbrock Performer RPM
Flowtech Afterburner
Flowtech Terminator
Flowtech Warlock
Hooker Aerochamber
Hooker MAXflow

Matt "Looks Like Egon" Davis
96 Alpine Green V8
98 Audi A8 4.2Q in Racing Green Totalled
02 Audi A8L 4.2Q in Black

I buy my OEM Ford parts at 10% over dealer cost from Steve in White Bear Lake, MN.
You drive "like a man possessed"... by a woman!
