Has anyone used a V-Force muffler? They're the only DI/DO chambered muffler I can find which is what I'm looking for. Also what about a Flo-Pro muffler?

Thanks

I just noticed it looks like they only have a few tac welds holding the crap in place, wouldn't they blow out after not very long?

yea, I read a post and you said they were sh!tty, but it seems like everywhere else I read it says V-Force is really good. Do you know of any other DI/DO chambered mufflers?

I've had v-force mufflers on big and small motors alike and love them. They sound a lot like a flowmaster, but a little throatier, most people can't tell the difference. When I was trying to decide, my exhuast guy was in the middle of doing one on an s-10 with a 4.3 and put a flowmaster and then a v-force on and they sounded almost identical, but the v-force is much cheaper. Same technology, you are just paying for that "Flowmaster" stamp in the body.

they are indeed basically the same design but the quality and workmanship is another different story.

probably because mine is use in the winter state with tons of salt. the v-force crapped out after 6 months brand new installed.

the flowmaster is bought used and the previous owner use it for 6-8 months and i use it in winters state for about a year++ and it still stay the same shape.

Im not a big fan of magnaflow, I think it might be too quiet if I mid mounted it. The Flowmaster DI/DO is $130, thats a little much and I can only find it in 2.5". I want it pretty loud but I'm gonna keep the 2 front cats for now.

the proflow is bunk....no muffler can accelerate the exhuast gas as they claim of theirs.

IMO, stick with Borla, Dynomax of Magnaflow. Everything else is marginal or junk. If you shop around you can find them for not much more than the cheapos.

BS! :)

Yesterday, I had my dad drive a mile and a half down the road and turn around and come back at me...full throttle.. I heard him easily..with the exhaust AND the wind blowing in the opposite direction. I've also had quite a few other people tell me they've heard me from quite a distance... I'd say its pretty darn loud.

the DIDO magnaflow isnt much of a muffler, its just a x-pipe with a case and a little fiberglass around it.

you don't have any cats though, I plan on keeping my 2 fronts until I get a chip. And I still wouldn't be sure about getting rid of all the cats because I want to keep my low end torque.

yeah thats true.. although I dont see how the magnaflow would be any quieter than any other muffler, seeing how wide open it is.

with my magnaflow, i made 265rwtq.. I don't have a stock or more restricted exhaust run to compare that number too..so I don't know how much torque i lost.

No magnaflows are pretty loud. My friend drove my bird down a road a ways and it was still pretty loud and i have stock cats.

Good luck i went chambered once never again i hope you like interior droning

Actually I really don't mind drone. The clips I've heard of the Magnaflow DI/DO just don't sound to good to me. Is drone the only reason you don't like chambered?

Nope personally i dont like the way they sound on our cars, we dont have the right bends ect to make them sound really throaty like the stangs and camaros

Actually, magnaflows being that they are wide open are going to be quieter than a chambered muffler... Im not saying that they arent loud.. but the chambered flowmasters are noticeably louder...

the 2 chamber flowmasters are some of the loudest ones you can buy from them I believe..

I have rear mounted magnaflows on my LX 5.0 now, and I like them.. but Im going to mid mount them later this year so I can get a lot more ruble outta the car... Ive heard some very "rabid" sounding mustangs that have had magnaflows come to think about it... Im going to have to buy a DI/DO Magnaflow so I can midmount it properly since I have a true dual but it will be worth it, since it sounds better that way.. I think my car is too buzzy this way, and I heard this same setup on a 5.0 car using flowmasters mounted at the rear and it was kinda buzzy too..

this true dual rear muffler mounted setup sounded awesome on my 3.8 LX car though, as it was probably the best sounding 3.8 car (hands down) Ive heard...
