So for the past few days i've been searching the old threads and the internet to decide what muffler to get. My exhausted is dumped before the rear axle. After all the research I think i'm going with the Borla Pro XS. From what I've read it has good performance characteristics, but i'm worried that it won't be loud enough?
I also looked at the flowmaster 44 alot, but they are supposed to be rather loud, raspy at higher rpms, and crackle or pop.
I want a good muffler with a rich deep noticeable tone, with better performance, and I don't want ne popping or cracking.
I'm just looking for some more insight into how loud the borla mufflers are and what makes them so good.
I have a Borla Pro X/S I love it and it's just the right volume for me. If you are wanting loud, the Pro X/S is not what you are looking for. I can hear my tires over the exhaust at highway speeds and my tires aren't real loud.
I got some turbo mufflers at Auto Zone ( $15 each I think it was ) and they have a lifetime warrentee and they gave me a nice deeeper tone not quiet but not load. I love they way they sound. I have 2 1/2 tail pipes over the rear axles with them turned out to the side behind the rear tires. It was a cat back system from the stock ex that runs down the pasanger side and was suppose to be straight out the back. I just change it at the end so they exited out the side insted.
You won't get any popping or cracking with a 40. Delta or not. Unless you aren't running right. I run 40's on my 4.6 and it sounds great. Have them on my 289 Mustang and the sound really nice with the dump in front of the axle.
Well after reading up some more and listening to lots of sound clips on youtube, i'm probably going with the super 44 now, single in, double out, should give it a nice deep tone. The borla just sounded a little 2 ricey for me, and i would rather have it sound like the V8 that it is.
$0 series.. yeah, You dont get a crackle and pop unless you go with much to big pipes.. which causes too much to come out at once.. Mine work eprfect, no crackling or popping and sound sexy as all getout :-)
Well I installed my new Super 44 and its really loud. Sounds very good, really deep rumbly tone, but I'm going to have to try a different muffler, its just a little to loud, and drowning on the road. I'm going to try and get a sound clip of it sometime this week.
So I ended up switching to a Flowmaster Delta Flow 50 instead of the Super 44. I like it alot more b/c it doesn't drone at constants speeds but still sounds good. I added a 30 second sound clip, please excuse the little brother using the camera.
well the one i have is a 3" in 2.5" dual out. I believe i bought the 40 delta. its been a while since i got it but im perty sure i have the 40 series delta model. its not too loud but still gives out enough good V8 sound
edit: i looked it up and i either have the American thunder 40 series or the delta. Ill look at my reciept when i get home
