nay, it's sounds pretty much the same as the stocker.... i took my car in to redo my exhaust tip, and i heard it on a yellow svt in the muffler shop testing mufflers out.... the loudest i heard came from, i think a flowmaster...

maybe replace the muffler with a small resonator and remove the lunchbox. That might sound good. Removed muffler is too loud. Removed lunchbox is hardly noticeable at anything above 4k.

well i would try one more thing if i had money and time... i'd get rid of all the res., the one in the front right after the cat, and the one in the far back (lunchbox).. i havent heard the sound yet, but think about it.... it might be that sound your lookin for!!

i dont know if it will suck or not, but how much is a good magnaflow or flowmaster muffler?
if its about 100 bucks i say go for it. get the whole thing done for about 150. I say keep the stock tip.

I loved my magnaflow cat back, it was slightly louder then stock. The only problem is the cops are cracking down in my town and I have an orp on now. When I put the orp on, it sounded allsome. Now since the cops are cracking down with db meter, I have gotten five complains for my car being to loud. I need help. How can i quiet my car down with out taking my orp off?I was concidering taking of the magnaflow catback ( only 6 months old, and will sell cheap) and replace it with something that is not as load. Suggestions please to get the cops off my back.
Andrew
