Mufflers choice
 
Im going to be piecing together a 2.5" exhaust system soon and I have been looking at mufflers. I have had great Luke with the Dynomax Ultra-Flow welded mufflers on past projects. Here are my choices so far (front and rear). What do you think? [poke]

The first one is nearly identical to what I put on my Focus, aside from the brand. Overall design is the same, but I went with Magnaflow. I guess it kind of depends on where you intend to mount the muffler. Up front like mine, or in the rear like Redfocz?

Should work good depending how loud you like it. It would be interesting to compare it to a FSWerks Stealth. If it sounds just as good it will be well worth it, because total cost could be much less I would guess.

Are you putting on two or just can't decide to put one in the front or rear?

I'm going to use both. Round one up front, and oval/square one in the rear to control drone and quiet it further.

That's a lot of muffler. I'm running just the 6" round up front and drone is minimal, but the exhaust is fairly loud. But if they are free flowing, it may still sound pretty good. We will, of course, need a video once it's all said and done.

Should sound pretty good, your going for the same placement as me on my set up. Cant wait to see this installed and videos posted [thumb]

Thanks. Yea, it is a lotta muffler, but that is the point. The Ultra-Flows are non restrictive straight through mufflers. Extra mufflers won't hurt power, but will make it livable.

I will hook a GoPro to the bumper and take a video.
