Best sounding muffler....

I was changing the transmission fluid on the 90 today. I cant believe how bad this exhaust system is set-up from the factory. There are probably 4 90* bends.

Im going to ditch the resonator on the 90 and go with a dual in / single out muffler. Might try to set up a side exit right before the drivers side rear wheel to get rid of some weight and a few turns.

What kind of muffler sounds the best on this engine?

I would like a nice mellow tone from idle on up but nothing intrusive at cruising rpms. I dont care about cabin noise as long as it doesnt drone. I cant deal with that.

Some supercharged cars blow.......Others just pick up and move.

flowmaster's sound good placed at the resonator. Racecougar seems to like his magnaflow resonator setup pretty well too. A glasspack would actually sound good too, especially once you get that cam in there.

exactly. Ive heard a magnaflow resonator doesnt drown too terribly. Julian here in town with the autorotor supercoupe has a magnaflow dual in/single out with two turbo mufflers in back. Not droney at all, and sounds great. Not too loud, but who wants loud exhaust when you have the loud whine of a supercharger. I'm sure you know the feeling, M8

Sound awesome guys. I thought it would sound a lot more ricey. Im surprized actually. Good job!

Im leaning towards a 2" glasspack now....although I wonder if Ill lose too much tq going with that, no cats and a side exit exhaust setup...hmmm...I like what little low end these 3.8s have.

You bending down or something while taking that video, Mike? You dont happen to have any clips of higher RPMs?

Just giving you ****. No harm meant.

Sounds awesome. Different, but not bad. I guess you can only get so much out of a V6 when it comes to that v8 sound.

You guys have been a huge help, thanks.
