Another happy customer flowmaster delete

A while ago I built this exhaust for a friend. We used a blowmaster american thunder catback

https://www.thirdgen.org/forums/exha...ml#post5769488 (Custom Dual Y pipe Pics inside)

Eventually the droning got the better of him and we installed a resonator

https://www.thirdgen.org/forums/exha...nd-decent.html (Making a flowmaster sound decent)

Another year or so went by and the flowmaster drone pissed him off even more so we had to come up with a better fix.

Good news is we found a magnaflow 4th gen exhaust on craigslist for $50 the previous owner did some creative welding and cutting to eliminate the band clamps but I recreated the slip joints and made new hangers and his car is finally decent to ride in. No resonance at cruise, great sound at idle and sounds like a beast when on the fun pedal.

I have still yet to find anyone that was unhappy with the switch from dronemaster to magnaflow

As I get older the flowmaster drone is getting more and more on my nerves. But I just don't care for the quite idle of the magnaflow.

If you could combine the flowmaster idle with the magnaflow drone free, I would be happy.

Re: Another happy customer flowmaster delete

Flowmasters sound good outside the car, terrible on the inside. No thanks.

I have a Flowmaster 80 series on my convertible. It's louder cold. Once it warms up its pretty good. End game for me is an SLP Loudmouth 2 with headers and no cat.

How it sounds inside the car is of little concern as long as it blows panties off as I drive by. This is the only metric that matters for exhaust.

That one, as of right now, is at the top of my list. But it will be several years before I go and replace it, so I have time to look further into it.
