Okay Iam a Proud owner of a 95 LX Tbird. I have to say this car wasnt my first choice, but this car has grown on me more than any other!

Okay the first week I got the Bird I deleted the mufflers... was a lil louder but pretty mild....



than About 2 weeks ago I had the Resonator deleted with a straight pipe.
here is a video I posted on another post.

okay so now I just got my newest setup today. I have to admit I took the idea from
"sCrEaMiN BiRd " Hows It going Down In Sac Town?
http://forums.tccoa.com/showthread.php?t=109508 -Got a Single Exhaust



Okay So this is by far the loudest setup of any car I have ever had. Here is a sketch of my setup right now



I dont have any mufflers and thats why The exhaust pops all the time... "Sounds like a SS Camaro with a moddifed exhast." I know I need a lil Backpressure so Im thinking about puttin in a super 44 Flowmaster muffler.
3" Center/Center


I will post a video up if it stops raining.... As soon as possible

deleting the mufflers sounds like *****. we've all heard the videos before, and it still sounds like *****. save up and get a real exhaust done.

i would have to agree. with my set-up(kooks mids, magnaflow res & mufflers, hi-flow cats, 2&1/2" to 3" back to 2&1/2" straight out the rear valance) i think it sounds like a Ferrari w/the v12s in 'em. it's got that higher pitch almost whine to it, and it really wants to rev up. with my original set-up i had just the mufflers changed out to flowmaster 50 series and it was deeper and a little more throaty, but this is definitely a very distinctive sounding car now. do your exhaust right the first time. it will pay for itself later by you not getting to be known as that guy always in the muffler shop!

I had true duals with cats and a big single is much louder. In my opinion single is a better sounding exhaust on our cars. Much more aggressive and not so boring/mellow sounding.

I had true duals with just the front 2 cats on and i think it was perfect just like that, then i went ahead and chopped the cats off and just had her straight piped it was so ungodly loud sounded like a helicopter cruising down the highway btw i have 2 1/4 piping so it was alot of crackeling and poping i dont think that your single could of been as loud as my no cat true duals i have never heard such a thing:D

Didn't i just say i HAD true duals? Why do you think i USED to have true duals? Considering i have had a true dual set up with various different types of mufflers, i think i can make a better statement on whether or not single or dual is louder on these cars. Of course YOUR set up is louder because you have no cats, if i had no cats with my current set up mine would be louder. I had just stated that my catted single was sh*t loads louder than my catted duals with the SAME mufflers... Obviously considering the previous a catless single would be louder than a catless dual...

Think about it.

Duals = twice the pipe length, sh*tty bends, 2 mufflers total (if your running mufflers...)

Single = Half the pipe length of duals, possibly even less than half because of the elimination of some of the bends that a dual will have. Only one single muffler total, and less total bends. Also the bends that are in the single are less severe than a dual therefore more noise.

I also had the front cats and single exhaust and it was not that loud at all almost sound exactly like a stock system with the muffs cut off, so i do know, why do you think i went to true duals because the single exhaust was not loud.

Was your system single all the way back? Also what size pipe?

And i guess your telling me that double the mufflers and double the pipe length and more bends and increased bend angles = more sound?

riiiiiiiiighhhttt...

True duals 2.25''... mid-mount magnaflow tru-x muffler... delete the cats... best sound at any RPM, not just idle.

Deleting the mufflers alone sounds "ok" at idle... but when driving it sounds like a damn 4 cylinder with a **** can (horrible drone).

Duals = 2 mufflers, twice the pipe length, more bends, stronger severity of those bends

Single = 1 muffler, half the pipe length of duals, less total bends, less severe bends...

Therefore, your still telling me a single is still "quieter" than a dual? Realize that doesn't make any sense...

In my opinion, tone is more important than loudness.
I hate obnoxiously loud exhaust; whether it be on jacked-up redneck trucks or modified sport compacts. It just irritates the hell out of me.
I have the Dynomax setup on my '96 and I love it. It's very muted and mellow, but you can still immediately tell it has a V8 when I ease into the throttle. I think it's the perfect balance of tone and loudness - soft, yet noticeable.
