    Don't like the dual flowmaster I got, looking into a magnaflow and just going to lose the dual exhaust and cut the pipes after the muffler, before the hangers.

    I want to get an idea of the basic difference between Sport, Race, GlassPack and XL. I want a deep, tough sound that isn't too obnoxious. This might be hard to do especially after my intake and headers. What do you think?

    My dad is running a magnaflow single in dual out thats quite until you stomp on it. Even with the SC its not super loud, but man does it sound good.

    Ill have to go look what he has. I think its 20'' long or so tho..maybe 18..

    the 18'' single in and out i have heard on several 1st gens and it sounds great. Nice low rubble but not at all obnoxious.

    my 14'' Magna is pretty loud..would be crazy loud on your 4.0 with your headers and what not ha

    Ive got the universal 5x8 2.5" in/out. The long 24" body. Im quite happy with it. Very different note than flows. Ive had gibson before this, had to change it after I installed headers. Wish i did the 3" but would proli be louder.

    I have an 11" magnaflow that gets pretty loud when you get on it, and its moderately loud just driving. I think a 14" would be perfect for ya

    Now are all these the universal Magnas? Does anyone know how the sound of the street, race, and glasspack compare?
