Well, I got the Flowmasters on this weekend (finally). They sound good but are a little too raspy up top. I've been told that the mufflers will "break themselves in" during the first month or so, and that will remove some of the raspiness. I'm going to wait the month or so, and if it raspiness hasn't disappeared at all, I'm going to put a longer resonator in to try and eliminate the rest. I'll have pics and a video up some time this week, as soon as my sister gets them off her memory card.

I will go check out the sound of the magnaflow right now and post in a minute how it sounds.

I don't feel a whole lot of difference, but the butt dyno is telling me that in third and OD, I have better response and quicker 60-80 times.

Just watched the clips on your superford account. Your car sounds deeper than mine, but as I said, the mufflers haven't broken themselves in yet, so they may get deeper as time goes on.

ya i did not what to say any thing about feeling any different cause i know alot of ppl a critical of the butt dyno but noticed a differance in responce and in the pasing gear and i took a freind for a ride he said he felt it to so i pretty sure there as an increas of power how ever big or small...

yours is also going in to dual flows and that kinda makes sence that mine would be deeper cuase you are spliting yours up

i had some rasp to mine put i has mellowed out sence i have been driving more ...

Awesome. I really like the sound of the Magnaflow. That gives it a really nice, deep sound. I can't wait to get into the car today and lsiten to it. It'll be the first nice day when i can crank down the windows and actually listen to the exhaust while I'm driving.

One thing I have noticed though, is that the sound is really mellow when it's at higher rpms, say in OD on the highway. It does sound mean as hell when I'm accelerating though. Hopefully, after I get the new plugs, wires, etc on the car next weekend, my butt dyno will see more gains.

I'll have a video up this weekend. I need to go home to get them off my sister's sd card. Give me two days and you'll see! It sounds even better a week later!

Go to the pics link in my sig, you will see a file called myexhaust.wav, that's what my vulcan with a Flowmaster 40 Series DeltaFlow sounds like. :)


oops... you have a Duratec, yours will sounds significantly different... you'll have to wait for somebody to post a clip to hear the 'tec :)
