I don't know how the twin tips vibrant would look or work coming out of the back of a hole in the skirt that is 3" designed for one pipe. I could get a 3" straight through vibrant I might try, I think I wanna hear it straight piped before I put another muffler on though. So much sound deadening in these things its crazy.

Cheapest way to go about it. Cut out the resonator, go to Auto zone, get a straight section (18'' long), couple clamps, and some JB Weld.
You would be surprised on how quiet the resonator makes the car.

He isn't looking for loud. If he was he would just stay open down pipe.

there's two kinds of cheap, first there's cheap, and then there's too cheap. that's too cheap.

No I can have it welded up. I dont mind it quite loud, probably a little bit less noise than open downpipe. I will just cut the muffler out and see if I like it straight 3" all the way back, if not I might try a different muffler like a vibrant.

This may sound like a weird question, but are you looking for a better sound for yourself, or outside the car? I ask because all performance aside, so much of what you hear inside the cabin isn't the exhaust at all, but the intake tract noise. Just remember: If you want them to enjoy the sound of your car, work on your exhaust, if you want to enjoy the sound of your car, concentrate on your intake tract, (adding a cylinder makes a Volvo motor sing) This exhaust...3" end-to-end with 1 race cat, 1 16 inch glasspack (I was totally amazed that this was still working 10 years after it was installed), and 1 straight through Magnaflow followed by a reproduction of the factory "S" bend to help control in-cabin resonance in a wagon.

Outside, my car sounds nifty enough, kinda like a Group B Audi that's gone through puberty and learned some table manners...



Inside, however, you can hear Eric's beautiful header get after the job and make all 4 inches of intake work!

What about these?:

and this is only for NA engines (too much backpressure for turbo app.)

That sounds sick... Ha sounds good inside and out. I think I might like the sound of a resonator better than a muffler, maybe I will try that. I know I loved the way mt gtx sounded with just a resonator and that was on a 2" turboback.

Just had my 89 n/a wagon done in 2" straight with borla muffler at the rear of the car. Very nice sound almost like a XKE jag under accerl. Idles mean and heavy for a Volvo now with a slight hint of that flowmaster pinging sound. Feels like it also released a few more horses and with these cars every one of those phillies counts. Wish I had done this sooner. Very nice upgrade.

I would advise against glass pack mufflers, I'm running a thrush on my 745 and it gets far too much attention from the local constabulary. You can't really go wrong with a flowmaster IMO.

I can't believe how mellow some of these magnaflow's sound, I put one on a 7 series BMW and it sounded like I was running an uncapped header, apparently there are vast differences between the models.

Hopefully Smokey chimes in with what he's got. His system is NICE and not too loud from inside the car. I think most of the reason it's so nice is because of who he had install it.

3 inch turbo back, dummy cat no mufflers

3inch turbo back, dummy cat, magnaflow 14inch resonator



complete the exhaust system all the way out the back, no stupid side exit and you'll be stoked at how little muffler you actually need

Nobody mentioned SpinTech yet?
I'd suggest this one: 6000-pro-street-series

that sounds awesome. makes me think about replacing my glasspack with a section of 3" straight pipe.

I have a glasspack on a 3" straight-through side-exit, but I would definitely do a full-length if I were to do it again. The extra length of a full length system seems to smooth out the exhaust pulses a bit, making it sound less... erm, agricultural than something like a side-exit. at least that's how I see it. My glasspacked 3" sounds nice at idle, but other than that it's nothing special - IMO at least.

last time I checked, a 7 series didn't come with a turbo (older ones) ...no comparison between an n/a and turbo car when it comes to mufflers...

Definitely like the straight piped sound. But when I finally throw my he 341 on I will be running a 4" dp as well and then I might want a resonator like yours or maybe even a muffler. What does your sound like now with the 4" dp?
