What does everyone think of flowtech Afterburner?

I was browsing through a summit catalog last night and i came across this flowtech muffler..."Flowtech afterburners combine optimum performance with awesome sound. The huge flow tubes provide maximum horsepower, while sound tuned chambers create a powerful sound without resonance. Plus, the fully welded alumized case will provide you with mnay miles of trouble free performance." It says its a holley performance brand and since holley been around for a hundred years i hope it would be good. So my question is, has anyone heard/used these before? Good power gains/torque? since its 50 bucks it might be worth checking out. Thanks alot.

I had a set on my car when I had the dual 3" on it. They sounded pretty awesome but were crazy loud, with dual 3" that is expected. I would reccomend them.

really? do you have music match jukebox player?

click on the link and then go to your jukebox player and it should listed in there under your music library.

Else, copy the shortcut and paste in in "open URL" in windows media player. should play there.

Someone care to comment on the sound level?

According to some reading I've been doing, there seems to be a 3 db difference at idle between dynomax and flowtech.

I'm hazy on my science but recall hearing somewhere that the difference has to be at least 3db for the ear to even be able to tell the difference.

Someone set me straight?

I believe that every 3dB more is about twice as loud.

That's quite noticeable.
