View Full Version : anyone with mufflerknowledge?
08-25-2011, 01:57 PM
My current setup is 2 3/4" y pipe into 3" single, magnaflow cat, and a muffler from a Sweedish brand called Simons (single in, single out) and then splitted into 2 3" tailpipes (one behind each rear tyre)
Everything is 100% stainless.
The sound is OK, but could be louder
I'm keeping the setup exept for the muffler. (9,5" long, 8" X 5" oval straight thru packed)
here is how it looks:
I want loud deep sound, not the crisp "straight pipe-no muffler sound" and preferably no drone.
Does anyone have knowledge about how the different brands/types sounds?

I am also thinking of doing turndown before rear axle or side exit in front of rear tyre. Would any of these alternatives make any difference in sound?

It sounds like you'd like a Spintech and you'll have more drone with either one of those exhaust setups. I would dump it at the bumper

How is the Borla XR-1 compared to Spintech?

The XR-1 is also nice, it's on the short list of mufflers that I recommend also

where should I place the muffler? right after the cat or further back . My current muffler is placed right in front of the rear tyres.. about 1 meter from the cat.

I would leave it right where it is, if you put it right after the cat that would also make it drone more

thanks ! I'll probably order a XR-1 some time soon:)

Just get a 40flowmaster you cant go wrong,makes a sbc sound like a monster truck.

A Flowmaster would make it much louder I have the same set up as you but my muffler is a Magnaflow it's mellow so I can hear my music.

flowmasters drone bad though, a Borla is going to be pretty loud. I think you would like a Spintech, Cherry Bomb Extreme, Thrush Welded, or Hooker Aerochambers

Here is a video of my current exhaust :
What do you think? would it be better with Borla xr-1 or Spintech 6000?

OK, I just had to...!
One round Borla XR-1 is on its way from Summitracing :)

The biggest question is what size engine do you have?
