new exhaust is on!!
Ever since I got my car about a year ago I've been trying to decide what I wanted to do to my exhaust. I temporarily cut my mufflers off and it was cool for a week and then it just gets annoying and I realized how crappy it sounded. So finally after many different ideas I decided. I cut the third cat off and replaced it with a Magnaflow y-pipe then I put a 2.5" Dynomax race bullet into the Dynomax midpipe/cat back minus the mufflers into some 3" ss tips. HOLY CRAP! it sounds amazing! Its really burbly and muscular sounding. Sounds very similiar to a 4.6 stang. As for loudness, under slow acceleration its not too loud but still noticeable, but give it a little more gas and the people around you will be starring(sp?). It sounds like its got a bigger motor under the hood than it does. Why not true duals you ask? i guess Ive just always liked the way single sounds on a V8 compared to true duals. I couldnt be happier with the exhuast. The best part is that I did it myself and I didnt have to worry about anyone else touching my car and it was relativley cheap.
oh yea as for power gain, its probably my imagination but it feels like it doesn't take as much gas to get going. I dont know, I might be crazy.
