here we go, I am going to take my bird to the muffler shop on Tue and thus I have a few questions based on the limited videos I have seen on youtube to get a feel of what its going to sound like. In the past all of my previous V8 cars have recieved true duals simply because you cant beat the sound. Now experience has taught me that depending on internal engine modification versus bolt on mods that anything over 2.5 inches in diameter is overkill on a stock or bolt on engine. Backpressure is key to maintaining low end torque. What I cant stand is when you go to a muffler shop and try something other than duals and it ends up sounding like CRAP!, On these cars duals can get pricey, So my plan was to have the front portion of the exhaust taken out which would elimanate the first two cats along with the cat in the center and that little muffler crap which I assume is a resonator, and have a fresh 2 1/4 Y-pipe installed clean of any restriction. The rear portion will stay the same except the mufflers will be swapped out for a pair of single chamber 40's I have in the shed. one of the muffler guys told me that my car should have a factory stainless steel exhaust but I dont know, maybe hes on crack. Any ways has anyone tried this route on their exhaust and what are your thoughts??
