So, I know theres a gazzilion threads on this but it seems everyone else in the world has a different taste in exhaust tone than me.

people rave over the sound of a vr6 exhaust that is all raspy and highpitched, that isnt for me.

I like mellow and smooth, with a good volume under the gun. (coming from the dude that used to dd a 77 chevy with headers and flowmaster 40 series true dual....) LOL :cool:

So for starters, im planning on removing the suitcase, and was thinking of putting a new muffler in its place, possibly a borla or magnaflow..

Just wondering if anyone has experience doing it this way.
I also have a can on the back that can come off if its going to hurt the sound. which i feel may be the case. Its one like this I think (came with the car..)
Like this, inner silencer not installed.

this is a 2.5" magnaflow catback to a "T"

however as Fubar mentioned you can't go wrong with Borla either. If you want a little bit more of a subdued tone go with borla, if you want something more aggressive / loud go with magnaflow.

on the street I run a magnaflow high flow cat with a big straight through resonator, then a borla pro XS muffler out back. vicious sounding on throttle, but quiet enough to have a discussion in the cabin when cruising. (even with 3.5")

Borla sounds amazing. I have 2.5" piping with magnaflow cat and a borla muffler. I can try and get a better video if you want.

Not sure if the video will link. If not, just look me up on instagram. It is the same as my username.
