Here's a sound clip of the Flowmaster on my Duratec. I know some were asking for a clip. I think it's a Flowmaster 40, but I'm not sure because I didn't buy it, I cut it off of my brother in-law's dead Ford 360. I also have a resonator tip from Advance on it. I think that changed the sound a bit.

I did this sound with my laptop so the sound isn't the best, but I think you'll get the idea. I will try to get a better clip soon. One thing I noticed with this muffler is the Duratec tends to start to sound more like a 4 than a 6 at about 1500 RPM or so. Around 2000 RPM it almost sounds like my brother in-law's 85' Golf at idle. He had a flowmaster on that too.

All in all it sounds pretty good. It is starting to grow on me.

One more thing. It did noticably improve the way the car runs. It is smoother and more powerful throughout the band. I accelerated from 40 to 70 in 4th gear lock-up on a freeway ramp this morning without the converter ever unlocking. It got up to speed like it was nothing. It was a flat ramp too so it's not like it was downhill. Every day since I put it on it has been impressing me with little things like that.

Now if only I could get rid of that spark knock when the A/C is on...
