Flowmaster has their cat-back out

Thought I'd share this with others.

http://www.flowmastermufflers.com/sh...oducts_id=4499

I've personally never heard any flowmaster systems/mufflers sound right on a smaller engine, but I'd certainly like to be proven wrong. Anyone going to try this out?

Unfortunately it doesn't look like they have a sound clip yet.

On a somewhat related note, does anyone have plans to test power gains on 2.5" systems vs. 2.25"? Obviously it would be nice to have a hand-held tuning solution first, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

I'm ready to get exhaust work done, but would like to see some power and noise results from different setups.

Once again, no love for the sedan. Which makes no sense to me as the sedan outsells the hatch by quite a bit.

for 600+ I think we could have our own Exhaust made at a shop, maybe not mandrel bent, but on a 4 i don't think it would matter that much.... Id rather have one made anyways, then you can make it the way YOU want.

Finally got the Borla that I ordered up 3 weeks ago installed in my Focus Sedan. I now have the dual exhaust look with an excellent sound. I did have the middle resonator removed as the car was still too quiet with the new Borla muffler and the the resonator still in

I plan on going this route regardless of what comes out. I have a shop nearby that has always given my friends and I good deals. Just thought I'd share what I found with everyone else.

I always like to hear what all of these exhausts sound like too so I can try to fine tune my own.

How exactly do you do that, fine tune it I mean. I've never dealt with an exhaust shop. Do they just have ready to bolt/weld together parts and you select what you want, and then pay them to cut/add more parts if you are not satisfied?

Something like that. Every exhaust shop is different in what they carry.

If you know what you want you can either buy it on your own, or buy it from them if they happen to carry it.

umm, ok, so beside getting a discount bc you know someone, what is the difference in using an exhaust shop and buying your components are a retailer and having it installed.
