I spent the better part of a day cutting off my Flowmasters and replacing them with Magnaflows.
I heard from so many people how good they sound, ect ect. After much cutting and mitering I got them in but man are they quiet, TOO quiet really. They sound nice and have a crisper tighter tone but
all in all I would rather have the Flow masters back in.

Thats odd, i had Kooks build my exhaust, got JBA headers, magnaflow cats, true dual 2.25 with H pipe, and 2 magnaflow mufflers, my car roars, its louder than when i had the flowmasters on the same setup, i had the flowmasters cut out in october, and replaced with magnaflows,

Maybe my Flow masters where so loud because they where from a "cat back"
kit I had. My Flowmasters have a side inlet and not a rear one like most have.
:confused: :confused:

I had the same cat back kit, then i got the true dual exahust and the cats and the headers, and it got louder, but i didnt really like the sound that the flowmasters were putting out, i then had kooks but them out and put on the magnaflows, and at first it was quiet, but deep. it really rumbled, then after a month or so after it burned through it really opened up. I had my freind drive my car and i was in another car, and i really didnt realize how LOUD it really is, its a Deep tone but man it really roars, i got an mp3 of my old flowmasters on my website, i havent had a chance to put the new one of the magnaflows on yet. But trust me the Magnaflows will roar once they are worked in.

my buddy has the side inlet flows, not sure if there louder then regular flows or not, it sounds good tho, those 2 flows are about as loud as my single magnaflow, but when i do duals i think im gonna shoot for borla, but i like the sound of magnaflows

Chttp://www.gtbird.com/rides/kevstbird.mp3 Check that out, thats when i had the flowmasters, and now with the mags its a lot louder but still has a deep Mean sound, i like it a lot better than flows, but i guess its all in the eye of the beholder

i think with kooks and high flow cats and magnaflows all with 2.5" duals, that would be super loud, if i keep my stock headers im gonna run catless, the stock cats just choke up the exhaust so much

I'm going to echo somemore too. The stock cats are what is killing you here. Ever taken a look at them? There is a huge 90 degree bend into the cat.

My setup is stock cats 2 and 1/4 to dual in / out muffler w/ X pipe to Magnaflow tips. I strongly advise sticking with Magnaflow.. I am betting good money the car will roar when I get my Magnaflow High flow cats on the car.

If you notice when you ask other car modders they all go flowmaster, be a little different!
