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
