mixing and matching, exhaust

hey guys i bought a gibson (extreme split) cat-back and its really not as loud as the guy on the phone said it would be, and with the audio clips available with the recordings so close it made the muffler sound like a beast. in all its just really not the sound im looking for. is there any way i could put a flowmaster 40 on there, or would i have to do the chopping and welding myself to custom fit a new, louder muffler..

thanks, bills

IF you just got it then give it a few weeks to break in before you end up spending more money. Most people I have seen loved it besides it not being quite loud enough for some, but its a brand new exhaust so atleast wait and let it break in before you do anything.

yea, i figure i would let it break in, but as of now the performance is fine but im just really looking for that sound. ive heard the broken in magnaflows, gibsons and flowmasters and all in all i just want that Flowmaster 40 muffler.

but is it possible to find a flowmaster 40 muffler that has a single inlet and double outlet that would be compatible with my gibson, so i wont have to modify anything

I have the Gibson, so I will attest to the fact that yes, it will get somewhat louder. And if you go Flowmaster, it is available with single-in, dual-out:

Gibson's don't have a loud idle, but once you step on it it sounds great. Mine is loudest between 2.5k and 3k, and it sounds awesome.

my flow 40 series is decent... its not REAL loud though... so dont think its gonna roar and make people deaf, but it will be slightly louder than your current muffler overall.
