I just got a Flowmaster put on with that 2.25 piece opened to 2.5. Man it sounds sweeeet,just like that Cobalt video. I wish I could post video w/ sound but I can't. Now I've got a stock muffler on my hands, who wants it?

did you get rid of the resonator? if not, i've tried that combo, not much louder than stock. on the other habd, i went mufflerless and used stock tip. sounds real badass too!

i want a sound file too of your exhaust!

Yeah it's kinda loud but it sounds nice. And the s/c sounds better too, and yes I did keep the resonator. Check out that Cobalt video it sounds just like that.
mine sounds like that too, only a little quieter.

If you get the right resonator/muffler combo, there should be almost no noise increase... at least not one that should get you any attention...

but with the res that we have on mow i was told by a place that i trust here that there is no bigger/better res that we could put on there that would reduce the loudness of the exhaust. plus yes i do agree with you spooner about the right combo but if you try to get a specific sound and loudness out of it, it is really hard to get the right combo. all the turns that we have in the exhaust line doesnt help, it just makes it so we can only fit one res under there.

Hey Raven, any chance of a sound clip from your muffler-less exhaust?

In my 70 GTO I have a pretty big cam in a 428 along with 2.5" flomaster 40-series mufflers dumped at the axle and never once did I get pulled over for noise pollution. I guess it's because cops dig the muscle car rumble. I DID get pulled over for no front license plate and the cop wrote it up as an infraction not a fix-it. So I got the shaft on that one and paid $135 for a damn front plate ticket. Go figure...

I think a dynomax super turbo will give good flow along with a manageable tone. Check it out.

cost...

How much does it cost to get that 2.25 piping upgraded to 2.5 along with the cost of a muffler. And do places like midas do that sorta work?

I went to Tuffy's & it cost me $281 total for the pipe upgrade & muffler.

Really though, what's the difference between a catback kit and a pipe upgrade like you get at Tuffy's?

I live in california, and I have no mufflers. ;)
my car is louder than the decibels allowed, but I have a nice little
piece of paper from my dealership stating that my car comes
w/o mufflers. :cool:
