Flowmaster 40's

I dont know if anyone is willing to do this, But, From what im seeing on youtube. the Flowmaster 40 series Mufflers make the v6 mustang sound mean...

If anyone isnt in a financial crisis, please install these mufflers and post vids. I dont want to waste another $600 on mufflers for the 3rd time

D - you keep talking about how much you hate the borla exhaust, but I still haven't heard any details about it. What size X-pipe went in, did you touch the resonators, which series muffler did you use, etc. EVERYTHING makes a difference, and the X-pipe would make it quieter than the stock H-pipe. Plus, no vids?

Not trying to dog on the flowmasters - I love the brand. But you can't argue with the flowbench as far as performance, and those borla XR-1s have absolutely no restriction.

I have no idea if I got any performance gains out of my flowmaster delta 40, nor do I care. I love the way my V6 cavalier sounds with it. I would recommend it if you want something that sounds nice.

I still think the best idea is to get the exhaust diverters, best of both worlds. all out performance when you want, and quiet mufflers when you want.

OK, No video atm, but all i can say is this.

Just changes the stock mufflers with Borla XR-1's and didnt do the x-pipe, basically a muffler exchange.

From what i see and hear, their is NO DIFFERENCE from the sound of the Stock and the Borlas.

What a huge waste of money.

P.S the Resonators and stock cats are still in

The cats and resonators are canceling out a lot of your sound, mainly the resonator.

We've got high flow resonators available. Please feel free to call, email or PM us if you have any questions.

Yes you have to have the cats but what about the resonators ? I dont think you would use those if you had longtubes.

If I took out the cats and replaced them with high flows and removed the resonators. My v6 would sound like a loud supra

Its a bit too much rasp, but its not bad. I wonder how the XR-1s would differ from the Pro-Xs...

Even if thats true, the XR-1s flow better.

But I'd be very suprised that a muffler Borla claims to be for street use will sound the same as their racing mufflers.

HHHMMMMMMM I am debating being the guinea pig on this one. I had a mustong with flowmaster 50 series and it sounded nice. I just wonder if all I am doing is cutting out the axle back part of the exhaust and replacing it with 40 series would it do any good. I hate to waste the money. The other part is tips I like the double walled tips but they are expensive. Just have to see how I feel.
