Idle sound is quiet but awesome. On the throttle and sound level is less but still enough to let the neighbors know you are there. Nice throaty tone- far sexier than the Magnaflows.

The big surprise was on the highway. Cruising at 80, RPMs up to just below 3000, and she's quiet like a mouse. No more drone, and I can use this car for long trips as God intended.
Halleluiah!

Here's a video from within the cabin, windows up on a cold day, where you ca hear the new mufflers. Start at 6:20 and watch until the end for a 3-2 downshift and a nice throaty growl.

Re: Need new mufflers

Sounds great, my before and after with the Borlas was Flowmaster 50 series to ProXS as you know, and I was pleased the same way

Plenty of noise when you want, little when you don't. Nice choice!

Re: Need new mufflers

I got to say Porter glasspacks are the only mufflers for that year and car. But to each his own.
