    Im tellin you, just run a borla resonator to no mufflers, with 2.5 inch tubing. It sounds mean as hell. A little gargly, but its still vicious!

    wouldnt no mufflers

    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.

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

    borla, borla , borla

    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. (?)
    God bless!!!

    1990 SC auto ... red outside, gray cloth inside ... ~205,000 miles (and climbing) ... driven daily!

    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")
    (dual 2 1/2" in, 3" out)
    Bought from 21st Century Exhaust, Boynton Beach, FL 33426 (for $70+shipping)
    800-two seven six - six three nine nine

    www.borla.com
    Borla Turbo XL mufflers are (4"x9.5 x 19) part# 40665
    (center/offset, 2 1/2"in / 2 1/2"out)

    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/...62b32ff1d3.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.
