Does anyone use the Dynomax catback ?

I was thinking of picking up the Dynomax catback for my MN12, is it worth the money or should I just get a true dual system done now ?

I will stay with the stock exhaust manifolds if that matters.....headers are not even an afterthought on this car.

I have duals on my Roadrunner with the Summit turbo mufflers and I love it....the car has a bit more of a 'serious' engine than my MN12 but it sounds reallly good.

Sorry about the dog barking towards the end, he hates both of my cars lol.

I love the Borla/Magnaflow sound. My buddy has a 99 Saleen 281SC and I LOVE the exhaust sound....so in a way I would be trying to emulate that.

I doubt you're going to get that sound from a T-bird . . . . they just don't sound the same. Have you listened to some of the clips here?

There are some that sound pretty good, and somewhat close to a Mustang.

The Roadrunner has a 2.5" H-pipe system running off of stock HP manifolds with turndowns at the bumper. It is sporting a stock 440 for now (non-HP camshaft) and it probably at a realistic 300-350 flywheel HP.

I'm going to find out what mufflers that Saleen has. I know it is a Borla system for sure, but if I put a 2.5" H-pipe system with the same approximate mufflers, I see no reason why it shouldn't come close in overall sound. Aside from probably better headers and a supercharger, his drivetrain is not much different from mine.

The sound has to do with the fact that the mustangs exhaust pipes run nearly straight all the way underneath. If you could mount the 2 mufflers mid-body and have the pipes running as straight as possible all the way back, then it will sound like a Mustang.

I've got the dynomax cat back on my 96. The dynomax is definitely not loud. It's just barely louder than stock. It's about the same tone as a G35.

If you want LOUD a cheap way to get it is to use walker(dynomax)'s 46843 pipe and have someone bend you a tailpipe for it. That's what I had on my car when I bought it and it shook houses.

The Dynojunk is not loud at all, had it on my 95. After 2 Illinois winters there were big holes in both mufflers. You shouldnt have that problem in Texas.

What does the Walker pipe look like? No picture through google or Summitracing.com. I'm wondering if it is a catless Y downpipe or replaces the Y cat.

I have the Dynomax kit. i had the Flowmaster kit first but the drone was annoying. the Dynomax is a higher quality kit than the Flowmaster. It's louder than stock, but quieter than the flowmaster catback. I noticed a slight power increase with the Dynoamx over the Flowmaster. Mine's been on for at least 3 years and still working fine.

97 T-Bird Sport: Dynomax catback, Removed silencer w/ K&N panel, DReinhart chip, Lightning AGSF12-FM1 plugs/180 stat, Tokico 1.25" dropped stance, bye bye fender gap

'79 F100 SB : 300 ci six, Hurst Mastershift 3spd floor shifter, Offenhauser intake, Holley 4 brrl, EFI manifolds, Chebbie Rockers, Summit Racing 3.50 gearset, DISO 2.5" diesel muffler and 2.5" exhaust, Its'a six?!

It's a cat-back pipe. Bolts onto the back of the 3rd cat. You'll have to have someone fab up a tailpipe for you. I'll post a pic when I get a chance.

Alright, doesn't sound like what I was looking for.

And yes, Fordfanatic, there was a slight increase in power with the Dynomax as well as no droning.
