I sent you a couple. Hope they go thru. I think each is about a 10 sec video.
Tell me what you think.
It's 2.25 true dual thru a magnaflow resonator and then out Borla XS Turbo mufflers.

That's the same set up I'm running but with 2.5" exhaust. I've heard it's hard to make a V6 sound good but I've gotten plenty of compliments on the sound of mine.

Two 20 some inch Summit Glasspacks and Hooker Aerochamber mufflers.:)

Have a leak somewhere I can't find, but other than that it doesn't have any rice sounds or gargling.

i'm looking to buy borlas but which ones? pro XS or turbo?

pro xs are hard to find

My setup is 2.25 off the manifold into the 2.25 in/out magnaflow cats. 3Inch around the gas tank into the flowmaster force kit which is dual 2.25in

Sounds good for a 6 i guess but im not happy with it

bring the boost down to like5psi max?

i have a set of HF cats into a y pipe, into two dynomax mufflers. no farty sounds, but i would like to try another setup like with borla mufflers. and maybe no cats. and a borla res.

I have had Flowmasters (40series dual chamber), Magnaflows(Strait thru-Design & DynoMax Turbos(Dual Chamber).

The Dynomax wins hands down. None of the others are even close IMO...

Mine has dual cats into a single pipe to the rear of the car (no resonator), then it splits into 2 Flowmasters... it sounds HORRIBLE.

Another vote for Borla. (all the way)
Would have saved a bunch of $$$, if I just went BORLA the first time.

Anyone want to buy my Dynomax Super Turbo mufflers, say $40 + shipping?

Are those a direct bolt-on for a '90 SC? As in, cut and clamp, done. (?)

They go where the stock '90 SC mufflers are (you can see the hangers in pic, above).
As in, cut, clamp, weld it. Say 2-3 x's louder than stock. They are 2 1/2" in/out.

...
I was unhappy with the ground clearance of my magnaflow resonator.
Do the MATH for ground clearance.
Borla 4" deep vs Magnaflow is 6" deep. (+clearance to chassis)

Borla ProXS muffler for resonator #40349 (4"x9.5"x19")

The car I just bought has 1 5/8s midlength stainless steel headers out a fully mandrel 2.5 dual exhaust into a magnaflow resonator out 3.5 mandrel bent center pipe out the back through a flowmaster super 40 with custom exhaust outlets. The car itself is Highly Moddified but the sound is good...I like it...here is a Vid of the car before I bought it...

http://videos.streetfire.net/search/91+sc/0/c7e19d39-a1ed-4724-a21d-4c62b32ff1d3.htm

It sounds great except you cant hear it over the Autorotor

Hmm, I don't think those will work for me. I already have a resonator that will probably make the car louder. I think that combination might be overkill. Thanks, though.

I have ported exhaust into 2.5" into hi flow cats into xpipe into Borla pro xs.
Then I have Borla dual tips all in the center of the bumper. It sounds deep &
hairy when you step on it. Everyone has tailpipes on the side. I just wanted something different. True dual exhaust, 2.5" all the way. Vance720

Mild porting Mid length headers 2.5 exhaust high flo Cats dummy resonator cherry bomb mufflers not too loud inside but nice sound outside Hard to explain sound but sure doesn't sound like 6 cyl though

I'm running with ported stock manifolds, SCP cat-less downtubes, 2 1/4" x-pipe exhaust, and Flowmaster Super 44 mufflers out back.

It sounds very nice at idle. Plenty of rumble even with stock cam. Way better than when I was using Dynomax Super Turbo mufflers. It's very loud with these mufflers though, which many wouldn't like, and sometimes even I think it a bit too loud. It's a bit gargly though, which I acually like but I think if I had a resonator of some kind it would really clean up a lot of the loose ends I periodically have.

If anyone is curious about this muffler, I can upload a video or two.

I'm running kooks mid length headers, no cats, no resonator, true dual 2 1/2" exhaust with magna flow mufflers. It sounds smooth and deep with the magna flows and I love it. I had some chamber style mufflers like flow masters and it sounded like a tractor. Besides flowmasters don't flow as well as the straight through design of the magna flows.

i have shorty mustang headers
2.5" downpipes no catz
to a magnaflow resonator
3.5" single out to a Y back to dual 2.5s

didnt have mufflers... bad idea way too loud

heres a clip at idle without the Y pipe and no mufflers

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHgS5ckfN2c

now i got a set of Borla Pro Xs mufflers seem to be the touring type quietest ones i think perfect for the sleeper mode :P? by what i read here i cant wait to put them on

Ill add my 2 cents to this thread... i think that I would do something quieter than the cherry bomb vortex next time. it has a little drone inside the cabin, but hey, its a hot rod.

2.5" high flow magnaflow cats
dual 2.5" in magnaflow res single 3" out (early style gas tank)
dual 3" out the back with cherry bomb vortex mufflers

Just for the record, I love the way that sounds!... I have yet to find a youtube video of an exhaust for the SC that I like. Do you think it would still sound the same without the kooks headers? Also when you refer to "early style gas tank" you are referring to the stock one on an 89, correct? Are you running the stock cam?

Though I posted this in my own thread in another section leaving it here for comparisons.

High flow cats, dual 2-1/4" mandrel bent flowmaster dual in/out 50 SUV series as the resonator and dual dynomax super turbos for the mufflers. I am using the resonator as the cross over.

When I bought the car a few weeks ago, Dave told me it had highflow cats, magnaflow resonator and the stock mufflers, because his dynomax or whatever he had on was too loud for his taste...well, I couldnt hear anything with the stock mufflers on, so i hacked them off with a sawzall a the y out. Might have been a mistake...now it is quite loud and droning...but no big deal, think i might try to put a piece on to direct the sound down, see if that fixes it, if not i will direct it out back, followed by a single muffler if the straight pipe idea doesnt work.

Yes its a stock 89 gas tank. Its an aftermarket cam which gives it the little bit of chop. I think the headers add to the sound, but I'm not sure how much.

If someone is using dynomax vt's would you post a sound or video clip. I need to change my exhaust. Im currently using knock off flowmasters,no cats or resonator,mustang headers. It's just to loud for me anymore. I have a magnaflow resonator i bought off the forum probably 2 years ago im going to use but don't know if i want borlas or dynomax vts. Thanks
