Keith,

What does it sound like? I know a guy who had some magnaflows on his GAGT and it sounded really aggressive. It sounded almost like a V8. (Zoran if you remember him from Grandamgt.com)

It does sound aggressive. It has a deep tone, but without the annoying drone. The shop owner describes it as "Porsche-like".

It is a totally custom fabrication that ran $900. If you saw it and heard it in person, you would see it was worth the money.

There are a total of 3 Magnaflow mufflers and nothing in the system is stock. The piping is 2.5" T409 SS from the resonator(Magnaflow round muffler) to the 'Y' split(2.25" T409 SS) for 2 Magnaflow mufflers in back. The tips are 4" Double walled, polished SS tips.

There is better mid to top end power. On launches, the car is slightly quicker. I would estimate a gain of about 10-12 hp.
