I've only heard those sound like absolute crap on 4 bangers. Was it just a muffler with stock piping?

I'm ok with being proven wrong, so if you have a soundclip I'd like to hear it.

I dont I'll spend some time searching for you, It was just a replacement muffler, mounted transverse like on our foci.

It was a 2.25 and the original had rusted out so the Flowy was a much needed improvement, just clamped it on and enjoyed the tone.

Now I repete that I dont say it would make a 4 banger sound orgasmic, but it did have a good tone to it.

Nothing is any different about a Neon vs. Focus, both cheapo eco cars and moding them is similarly stupid.


Anyway a Stainless flowmaster 40 is a Flowmaster muffler specific for 4 cylinder cars, and one hell of an upgrade over a rusted out stocker.

I have a flowmaster on mine. I really don't think it sounds bad at all. The vid clip doesn't do it justice. I have one. I'll see if I can post it.

Yeah that's about how most of the flowmasters on 4 cylinders sound that I've heard. Not my thing. Thanks for sharing though!

Hey as long as you like it considering it's your car.

I understand the crappy mics on some of these cameras just can't capture the correct sound though.
