    Question Another Exhaust System Question

    [B]I was wondering if anyone knows if this exhaust system
    set up will bolt right up to my '95 SC. Also, will this be an easy driveway install with no mod's or welding.
    1)SCP High Flow 2 1/4 Down tubes with Cat's
    2)Flowmaster Resinator Kit
    3)Flowmaster Res-back kit

    Thanks, Jim

    Just browsing around other threads, Some guys have had muffler shops do an exhaust system for them & it seems to be alot cheaper!
    Will it be better, the same or worse?

    Get a shop to do it all I did something similar to your plan and ended up wasting a couple hundred.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks for the info.
    Doesn't the big dog system sound really loud? It would seem to.
    I want to put new downpipes for sure, but living in Cali, I need the cats.
    I just want a system that won't blow my ears off.

    i've got magmaflow resonator and mufflers.it was pretty quiet until i put the cat delete downtubes on.now when you go wide f***ing open it has a mean sound to it.

    That brings up another question, Is there a big difference between magna flow, flowmaster, or dynomax?

    everyone has their own opinion on muffler brand.i happen to like magnaflow,others may dislike them.i also have a 89sc with a flowmaster cat-back exhaust system on it. i think it sounds ok but it doesn't sound even close to my 94sc exhaust. granted i have no cats on the 94 but i remember what it sounded like before i removed them.others on this site will probably chime in on their likes and dislikes and hopefully that will help you make your decision.

    Nickleman60, what did you do, purchase the mufflers and resinators, from a store than bring them to a muffler shop?

    I have the SCCoA Big Dawg with SCCoA shorty headers, 2.5" down pipes, NO cats, NO Resonator. When I stick my foot in the supercharger, it gets pretty loud, in a ricer kinda way. That doesn't bother me to much, but it annoys the crap outa anybody behind me. But if you're behind me when I'm at WOT, I don't give a schitt, cuz, Buddy, YOU just LOST!!!!!!! It would probably sound a lot better with a resonator. Anyway, the exhaust also drones between 1800 & 2000 rpm. That's a good thing though, cuz if I hear that in 2nd gear, I know I'm exactly at 25 mph!!!!!!

    the shop i went to supplied the magnaflow resonator and mufflers.the pipes are 2 2.5" into the resonator,1 3" out that splits into 2 2.5" about 2' before the rearend.all joints are welded,no clamps .they charged me $660 installed.the scp big dog exhaust was $740 and i had to install it,no brainer. i bought the 2.25" cat delete downtubes from texas thunderbirds for $110

    That sounds like a good deal.
    Are the exuast manifolds 2" at the back (exit) or 2.5?
