Ok. I know that there is only one basic setup for true-duals on our cars. The two cats, x-pipe, tubing, mufflers, and the dumps. I know that people have tried to fit two rectangular mufflers under the center of the car (sort of like a Mustang), but there is a huge porblem with clearance. Well, I have somewhat of a solution: Round mufflers. They would be a pretty good fit, and there a few companies that sell round ones. Only problem-loudness. Most are racing mufflers, and while they will be close to engine to make it louder, I'm worried it will be too loud. Dynomax makes a few, and Magnaflow (don't know about the tone-anyone have a pair?). If this kinda sounds bogus, then I will go with the one's out back. Either Flowmaster 40's or Dynomax Ultraflows. Any suggestions-I want it nice and throaty but not wake the dead loud. Thanx.

We don't really need resonators...just mufflers. heck, 96-97 v8s didn't have a resonator from the factory.

Get a pair of flowmasters, and if they are too loud, put a pair of glasspacks where the resonator would be. Exhaust is VERY subjective, and the best way to get a system is to listen to alot of vid clips, goto meets, and hang out with the domestic crowd in your area.

sounds good.

It's a little on the raspy side to me, but overall, it sounds pretty harsh. I can hear 40-series (I'm pretty sure). I'm sure that high tone is just something that you can get around with a different setup, or it may just be my sound card. But in a nutshell, it kicks. What exactly did you do?

Just take two 4" outside diameter Dynomax bullets and connect them right where they will end at the differential. I am going through a full diet for my current bird before I get the motor in and just by taking the Mac mufflers and two "s" shaped pieces of pipe off the back of my ART true duals and putting on these bullets, I bet I saved 30+ pounds. And I had 45 degree turn downs put on them and turned them in towards each other and it is rumbly at idle, but not loud. At WOT though, it is mother ******* ear bleeding LOUD. It can be done and they fit up nice and tight on the car. You just have to be careful with the cops if they are picky. I have so many ******* 4x4's around here with a 40 series Flowmaster stuck 2 inches behind the exhaust manifolds and 18 feet of 1 7/8" dual tubing run to the back that they pay no attention to me. If you don't have cats, it is LOUD!!!

Hey, i have a question... I just installed (like 2 months ago) my new exhaust to my 95 v-8 cat..... This is what i did: Third cat removed, resonator removed.... I have a Y pipe from the two cats, and this guy put 2.5 pipe all the way to the back..... Now, he used the same pipes that were holding my old mufflers...... I think they're 2 1/4(really don't know.. but they are smaller...) I bought the 40 series flowmater and he put them on the back were my original mufflers were..... If you're in a distance of i meter, you can see the mufflers coming out... Now, the saound is not loud.... I would really like to have a sound like yours.... I install 2 mufflers on the back... I'm gonna try and post the pic so you can give me some tips J-Rob.
Now i went with another muffler guy, and he told me that it would be best to do iy dual exhaust.. he told me that it would sound louder, what do you think??? Is it true??? Now, i really want to change my setup, so i think i would need to sell the setup that i have now...... Hope to post the pics soon.. maybe this saturday.... Comments are very welcome..:D

well i dont use 40 series so i cant say that the sound is comparable. flowmaster calls the sound "aggressive" instead of "deep" like the 40's. that thinner stock pipe might be affecting the sound volume, but probably not very much.

Probably from a loudness standpoint (but still legal) it would be best to use larger down-tubes, high flow cats, an H-pipe (or x, but x's are built for power in mind, not as loud as h-pipes), and probably glass-packs or some type of round muffler, which is what I may try. They fit nearer to the engine, not further out back like rectangular 40's do, which makes a HUGE difference. I guess all I have to say is "keep the clips coming". As some1 said earlier, it is very subjective.

or...

what about a dual-in, dual-out muffler? I think Flowmaster makes a 50 series SUV muffler (any1 know how this sounds?), and I saw some other company made one too. It could fit right under the middle of the car, and possibly take out the use of a cross-over pipe.
