For the money & longevity, and decent sound(not too quiet/not too loud) I say magnaFlow straight through muffler.

I'm running two on my n/a 240.

anyone have any thoughts on the IPD sport exhaust kit?
http://www.ipdusa.com/products/5608/...n-turbo-models
or are better results found by using any of the above suggestions for aftermarket mufflers and cutting out the first resonator?

Here's my setup. Minus turbo though :(



Sounds like poop. Angers the neighbors. Makes me grin.

It's basically stock 2.25" header back w/cat + modified glass-pack w/3" stainless tip or might be 2.5". I got bored and started cutting lol.

First clip is the same setup with a cheap-o turbo muffler that was on when I got it.

Ya, use Cherry Bomb Vortex instead. Much thicker metal, about $35 each, outlasted my Magnaflow by several years

Default Raspy as a smoking grandma

Bringing this back to satisfy the search Nazi's...

IPD sport exhaust just rusted through. Running NA B21, B cam, 2.25 exhaust, w/cat. Ended up replacing the IPD muffler with straight through Magnaflow, and I don't mind the volume, but I can't stand the rasp. Anyone have a suggestion for resonators that will remove that harsh rasp?

Only worrying about tone? Any glasspack anywhere before the muffler.

For NA, I like a single "turbo" muffler or offset magnaflow. They both usually have some sort of fiber filling which really helps with drone.

For turbo, a simple resonator or glass pack (a good one!), or even a short magnaflow is fine.

For the turbo I use a single rear mounted round 3" magnaflow SS. It makes a nice sound. Has a full 3" system from engine back.

The wagon has a simons sport system which helps a bit but isn't performance as it's the same 2" as stock. Just mandrel bends and better flowing mufflers.

Well I think the Magnaflow (my muffler) is a glasspack. You can see straight through it.

Would ANOTHER glasspack help then?

I'm NA with the 60mm exhaust from a turbo model with a Magnapack in place of the muffler. Sounds great, would be better with a turbo to muffle some of the slight rasp at 6k rpm.

I had a flowmaster 40 on my E30 325iS. The tone seem pretty mild. It really just sounded like the factory muffler but a good bit louder. Like a loud hairdryer but that was likely because of the engine itself. Almost too smoooooth.

There’s only one way to find out.

True! But I was thinking more along the lines of a resonator. Same concept I suppose, but specifically, a resonator. Vibrant has some that are interesting.

I have been told that the offset (staggered) mufflers reduce drone better than straight through.

Magnaflow flowmaster big chambered thing in the back and Vibrant straight through resonator in the stock spot. Spools faster than my old turbo muffler and it's quieter.

Stock spot or replacing the cat? Do you run a cat? Where's my cat... Kitty kitty bang bang. Meow.

But seriously, specs. There are a few Vibrant resonators. 12 in, 18 in... How many inches sir?!?! Inquiring minds and all...

Not for me. Offset flowmaster in the resonator spot on an NA 245 had an awful 2800-3200rpm drone. No rear muffler, pipe straight out on the rh side.
