I have a confession to make......

I love the sound of the 2.8 v6 thru flowmaster mufflers. There, I said it. Cast stones, throw tomatoes, do what you wish. But I'm sticking to it. Sounds good. Makes me grin.

Re: I have a confession to make......

The intermediate pipe on my 92 Firebird with the 3.1 went after I bought it. The whole length of the EWS split open, so I put my Borla on it, since I already had it from my other car and the car was apart. I thought it sounded pretty decent too, as did others. The Borla is pretty mellow, but other people said they wouldn't have thought it was a V6 either

Now that's a good laugh. And I had flowmasters on a v6... I didnt like it at all. Quite honestly the only thing that ever made it sound good was a turbo.

Re: I have a confession to make......

I have headers, no cat and a flowmaster 44 and it sounds good till about 3-4k rpm. I love the idle, especially with my cam.

Thanks! The Turbo will quiet it down some. It needs a repaint, I'm going with 1979 Nocturne Blue.
