Thought I'd give you guys the scoop 1st before posting it on MBworld, or if post it there at all.

I finally got around to installing the Magnaflow Dual Oval Tip exhaust !! Got a sweeeeeeeet deal from a friend. Everything is fine. The installation was great, 30 minutes and 2 bills haha !! Did it during my work lunch break.

Didn't remove the resonator as "shadowgriffin" said !! And now, its basically not loud. You cant tell that there is an exhaust when the car is idling or on the highway or even at cruising speeds. No sound after 3000 rpm whatsoever !!


People with Magnaflow's and resonators do you feel me? Or is this an odd story?

Suggestions to make it a little bit louder? NO ONE EVEN TURNS THEIR HEADS ? loooool

whydidn't you take of the resonator? it should be too loud without it, or at least put a shorter resonator if you are worried about excessive decibels. nice muffler btw :thumbup:

so what did we decide after all - flowmaster=too loud and Magnaflow=just right?

No Matt, we have decided that Flowmaster for v8's Magnaflow without the resonator isnt worth the expense !! I think a flowmaster with the resonator on should be good, even for the I6's !!

OG, soundclips ? If there was a sound....there would a clip....lol hahahahaha !!

Pictures, not yet Chris. Im waiting until my rims are put on. And my car is covered in sand and salt anyways !! We have policy on no dirty cars allowed. And I cant wash it, coz if I do, I wont be able to open my doors and everything is going to freeze up !! WELCOME TO CANADA !!! Hahaha !!

exit2ek, Im worried about performance loss if the resonator is removed. Thats my only concern. So if anyone can give me a solid answer I shall make my moves accordingly !!

Should have gotten an EISENMANN Race when I had the chance !! *kicks himself*

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Nice muffler choice! I don't think you could have done better. Sure, Eisenman is 'cool' but you'd be paying too much for what you have now. Good job!

I think he also has Borla Bullet mufflers too.

Fuel economy will go up on ANY car, IF you can keep your foot out of it.

How loud is it on the highway ? Have you noticed any increase or decrease in power and fuel economy ?
It's not loud at all on the freeway. It has a lil rumble until 2k and then after that it starts getting "lighter" if that makes any sense...has a lil drone to it but not bad unless you stuck at one speed at the right rpm....

Resonator delete and borla race mufflers...

Well thats the same case with me. I just have a drone during loads, after that its as quiet as stock and I don't want that...lol !! I want it loud when idling and at least until 3 grand.

Borla you say eh? Well I already have Magnaflow's so I'll stick with them for a little while and then try something else.

What happened to your fuel economy though? Better or Worse?

Well I wouldn't say it's quiet as stock after 2k for me but at the same time, the range in rpm in your car is different then mine so I'm sure yours will growl a lil longer then past 2k. It really grumbles from the get-go and then begins to soften out but that doesn't mean it's quiet as stock :)

As far as fuel economy, it's about the same, maybe a tad bit on the better side but nothing major...

I was just mentioning what I had on my car when I mentioned borla... :D

JUST TOOK OFF THE RESONATOR and HOLY SHIT....what difference I tell you. Sounds like a freaking V8 under that hood. It's quiet when you are cruising, and loud when you give it gas. Which is what I wanted !! Sounds WICKED when it idles. A guy with a modified 3 series totally checked out my car and followed me for a block...lol !!!

NOW THATS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT !!!
