Alright, about a year ago, a guy in the Chicagoland area decided to rip my wife off with this "CUSTOM" muffler job while I was deployed. Well, when I got back and saw this ****, I flipped out on her and the shop. I have been wanting to do this for a while now, but I was just having a hard time finding the right mufflers. I figured out that I really like the aggressive sound of the Flowmaster Original 40 Series mufflers, and have been stuck on them every since. I have a slideshow below, to put up before and after pictures. I will try to get a decent video tomorrow posted up. Enjoy:

That amp, was all I needed. I have it hooked up to my BTL right now, as I am trying to sell the Q. Unfortunitely, the 1000/1 doesn't even get my BTL warm.

The super 44's are for V8's and diesel engines. I like the sound of them, but I was advised by Flowmaster not to use em on my particular vehicle.

holy ****, make them re-do that ****.

40-Series are well-known to rust out. just a heads up.

I have yet to see that, and FYI, Flowmaster gives a 10 Year warranty against rust on the stainless steel mufflers.

lowmasters can be quite restrictive. I went with a hooker aerochamber muffler on my last vehicle and really enjoyed the sound of it.

I hate Flowmasters and I hate the sound produced by GM's low peformining V6's. That must sound absolutely awful but hopefully you like it, thats all that matters really.

I hate flowmasters also, make everything sound like a mustang, I like the chevy v6's though. I run walker ultraflow on my cars, but you may lose too much backpressure, especially if you caut the cats off

Doesnt' sound awful at all. My car sounds like the Charger in Transformers. Only thing I don't like, is that it sounds like a Honda on the inside, while idle.
