K guys rite now i have the cp-e headers w/ high flow cats with a magnaflow resonator and no mufflers. It sounds horrible above 3k rpm because there is nothing to cancel out the harsh sounds since the stock headers were so restrictive they canceled out alot of harsh sounds and such. I want to go with a flowmaster muffler but im not sure which one i should go with. I was thinking of going with the super 40 series muffler but arent they made for like v8's and up? flowmaster does make a muffler (60 series) for sport compact cars 4 and 6cyl engines... But im not sure which to go with. which would sound deeper and such. Advice is greatly appreciated here are some links.

I want to put a single muffler further back in my exhaust. i need to do some measuring though to make sure thos mufflers fit.

60 series:

super 40:

edit: maybe even something like this http://www.flowmastermufflers.com/hp2.html i dunno :\

sounds better than most, Daishi. unfortunately, it still sounds a little farty to me. like they said in the other post, it is hard to tell from amateur video.

im still looking for something with an even more aggressive sound; like its coming from the whole car and not just the back end. i mostly want it for the same reason motorcyclists put loud pipes on: to be heard and noticed and avoid being hit. i almost get hit every day because someone most likely didnt see me (either that or they are over-aggressive @$$holes who think they pwn the road and everyone else is just in the way).

heh yeah.. Its hard to tell in the vid really.. Its not farty at all once the car arms up. If the car is still cold there is a slight trace of rasp at around 3k rpm.. It also depends on the speakers ur watching the video on... It sounds pretty deep on my speakers...

I'm not happy with the MF catback either...I also want to switch...I want the sound of the engine revving to be very clear. I was thinking Flowmaster hush Power muffler where the resonator is and then Borlas on the tail end. Does anyone have a sound clip of the racing beat with the headers?

Dont get flowmasters... Their chambered designs are meant for big blocks... a chambered design restricts airflow and creates backpressure.

Id say get the borlas and stick a nice size resonator on their... I can still hear my intake and such with my borlas.. At this point one isnt too much louder than the other like some other exhausts you get you cant hear the intake anymore.. ya know.. Its pretty balanced with this setup.

the borlas are louder than the magnaflows when you dont have headers but when you have the headers the magnaflows are louder... The borlas are slightly quieter and it blends in very nicely with the intake sound.. So you get a nice tone infront and inback of the car..

Yea I cant hear the intake anymore with the MF...I hate that...that was my favorite sound!!! I have 2 resonators on there now and it still is too loud.

How can you not hear the intake over the Mags? I cant even hear my exhaust after 4k rpms becuase of CP-E lol
