  • Exhaust suggestions

    Ok I've been having some rattling problems with my exhaust. The guy and I that looked at, we are about 99% sure something is broke off inside the muffler and it sounds like absolute crap. Now contrary to popular belief I actually like the flowmaster I have on it. I know there are tons of exhaust videos but I want people to chime in that has had actual exhaust on their car. I'm open to different muffler suggestions. Also thought about a muffler delete into 3'' dual tail pipes but not really sure about that. Maybe some different exhaust tips too.
    My current exhaust setup is pacesetter headers, y pipe, !CAT, 3'' pipe to my flow master and dual outs.
    Here is my youtube for some exhaust

    I have a Borla pro xs on my car now and I love it, only issue I have with it is it's almost too quiet for me. With an intake, pacesetter headers, magnaflow cat, and the borla exhaust I put down 194 whp 225 lb/ft.

      O wow. Do you have any videos? I love mine the way it is. Sounds good at idle and even going down the highway. Not too loud. Not too quite either.

        No I don't I can take one at work tomorrow with a cell phone just to get some idea of the sound though. Mind you I also made that power after a tune, before it was around 180ish hp and 200ish torque.

            I have a stainless steel Magnaflow cat-back. At first I hated it. (It was raspy and sounded like an import) HOWEVER after some time it began to mellow out a bit. But it was not until I installed a whisper lid intake on my car that the exhaust sounded the way I wanted. It is not raspy at all anymore, and has that deep sound that I was looking for. It definitely took time for it to break in. It also has that cool poping noise once in awhile when I am decelerating in gear in the higher RPMs.

            It sounds perfect!!

              I have had quite a few, and found dynomax to sound the best on my car and my truck.

                      Don't know the part numbers anymore, but for the Camaro I run the Dynomax 3" bullet race muffler and the truck I run a 3" in and 2 2.5" out muffler. The popular one is the Dynomax super turbo muffler.

                          Yeah, that looks like the one I have on the truck and it use to be on the Camaro.

                            Flowmaster 3" intermediate pipe: FLO-26087
                            Dynomax 3" Axle cross over pipe: WLK-53061
                            Dynomax Super Turbo Muffler 3" inlet 3" dual outlet: WLK-17670

                            Yeah, I know 3" all the way is probably overkill on just a heads/cam/intake and longtube car. Who cares. That exhaust is allowing me room to move up in power levels especially after the turbo goes on.

                            Car is very mellow with that exhaust, not ricey, and at idle it has just a nice lope to it without waking the neighbors.

                                Are cars mere machines used for transport from one place to another? Are they just a way of satisfying your social hunger? I am sure passionate car owners would feel otherwise. Don’t you love the freedom you experience when you explore the sensations that go through your body. It is not possible to experience the speed the swiftness without being in a car.

                                But when it comes to caring, do you maintain your car in a good manner? Even though the answer might be yes, I am...
