lol, why? personally I would spend that 7 bucks on a 6pack of red and white dynamite. I had an exhaust leak on my 92' ranger that "sorta" made it sound like it had a turbo for a while but that was free I'm just jerking your chain if you like it, DO IT!

Go to YouTube and search it. The one I got came from Ebay from a link off of the youtube video I saw of it.The car backs up then practically floors it away. Sounds pretty cool :P

Have you guys ever heard of a "silencer"? From what the local Ricer guys tell me, all it is is a simple piece you screw (either into or onto) the end of your tailpipe, and it's supposed to quiet it down. It's supposed to (obviously) be a lot easier and faster than having to put a resonator on.


Ever heard of this? Do they make ones that will fit the FSWerks Race Exhaust?



If so, I wonder what a Race Header + Race Exhaust + Silencer would sound like?

Some muffler/tips like the n-1 style mufflers have a silencer that comes with them that is held into the end of the muffler with a small bolt. that is what they are talking about more than likely

I had a custom 3in straight pipe on my turbo corolla. the megan racing muffler came with a silencer, without it, my car would give you a headache at highway speeds. With it, my car was not much louder than stock, i was able to have conversations and hear the radio while on the highway. Import Tuner did a test and found that silencers don't drop power (in lower power NA applications like the miata they tested)

Magnaflow Low End Torque Loss for 2.3L

While looking for a cat back for the 2004 2.3L Duratec, I ran across this dyno plot for the magnaflow on the 2.3L.

http://www.magnaflow.com/02product/dynos/15682.jpg

Looks to me like they lost some significant tuning under 4000. Has anyone run this system? Can you notice the loss.

I have an automatic, which, yes, I know, I'd rather have a manual, but which would definitely suffer from the loss at the low end.

Any thoughts? A better cat back for the 2.3L? Thanks.
