apparently everyone loves it..... im usually not the kind of guy to get what everyone else has, but after hearing it, i couldnt help.... its just such a nice tone!!!! Im anxious to see what it does to my performance... does anyone have any dyno charts or anything for it?? I already have a MAC shorty intake, so maybe the combination of the two performace mods would actually boost each others performace?! can anyone shed some light?!

thanks

IMO I could not really tell anything performance wise but it was the first mod i did so i may have been able to tell if i would have did it later on.

Cool, nice present. I just had a Magnaflow installed on Tuesday, and as Saleen said, I couldn't really realize and performance gains, but they might be there. Oh well, Merry Christmas all.

Very nice. I have one also. It sounds very good with header, flex and high flow cat.
Mine didn't come with a gasket either. I wouldn't use the stock one since it's a smaller diameter. You might end up having a leak.

i wanted 2 get the entire exaust, but decided 2 get just the muffler, and have my local muffla shop do a custom pipe job for the rest-should be just as good though

I HAVE A ZETEC ZX5 AND I WANT TO DO SOMETHING TO THE EXHAUST TO FREE IT UP SOME, BUT WITHOUT HAVING THE "RICE ROCKET" EFFECT ON THE SOUND, I WANT IT TO SOUND AS CLOSE TO STOCK AS POSSIBLE WHILE BEING LESS RESTRICTIVE. WHICH PART OF THE EXHAUST IS THE MOST RESTRICTIVE, THE FIRST MUFFLER OR THE SILENCER AT THE BACK OF THE CAR.

THANKS FOR THE HELP

Well all of the exhaust is pretty restrictive.
