Mufflers/ Exhaust system

hey everyone i got a question on mufflers/ exhaust systems. i looked at many companies such as magnaflow, flowmaster, borla etc.. they have exhaust systems for about $1,000.. but mufflers are lot cheaper and i know mufflers change the way ur car sounds, so do exhaust systems.. so whats the difference??

and can mufflers make my car sound just the way i want it to?

You should check out Revo1. He's my friend here in town and he just cut off both mufflers, resonators and put in an X pipe on his A6. I think he got everything done for like $200 +/- He can link you up to how it sounds.

you really cant customize the way you want your mufflers to sound. but just pick one you like the best. i would just do a muffler delete with a x pipe. like what he said above me

As long as you don't touch the Cats, you can do anything you want behind 'em.

You may be correct, even though it's really not that loud. Still, I don't want to tell somebody to break the law....Sooooo, forget everything I was saying in this thread. A nice "Legal" system can probably be had for under $1500.

Here in MI we don't smog test so anything goes.

Can't beat a lopey cam and headers for sound

but if you want a cheap fix and keep your warranty a muffler delete ain't bad.

Doll, I don't know when exactly, but at some point we're gonna need to get some sound out of this black thing!

Delete and a nasty cam sounds real nice. Flowmaster is for Pickup trucks with gun racks in the window. Flowmaster=cheese master

That's what Ronin_2SS did on his (put a nice X pipe in too) and it sounds great!

Unless he changed his mind, I dont' think he's looking for the muscle car sound.

^ my point is that im happy wit the way my car sounds right now, but it could be much louder...

AND if it was possible to give it that Exotic Sound, but if not then its fine.


mostly i wanted to know the difference between the mufflers themselves and the exhaust systems that companies sell

I still say a Corsa catback would fit the bill for closest thing to an exotic sound. I think they're a bit raspy though? I'm not sure though, I haven't heard one in person... only Borla and straight pipes, have I heard.
