CAL, Do you have pics of the exhaust system up front. Need to see how the pipes come out of the cat's and go to duels.

I am having problems with the muffler places where I live. I showed them a picture of your duels but they wanted to see the front.

Don't ask why. Been to 3 places and they all say the same thing.

So if you have other pics it would greatly be a appreciated.

I don't like the massive amounts of rollover on all the vids i've seen so far. To me, it just doesn't sound right. You can't go super loud while keeping the rollover at bay, but I'd rather have my exhaust sound really nice rather than having it loud. Just my opinion.

No pics showing the front, sorry. It is just a y-pipe coming off the flange from the cats and duals out the back like the pic shows. I would think with that pic they would be able to duplicate it because the guy who did mine said that was the hard part! If you want I suppose I could try to get you a pic, let me know.

getting your exhaust exactly the same as someone else is okay, but all you really need to know is the width of pipe he used and the resonators/mufflers that he used. if you bend the pipes differently or put the mufflers in different spots, it will still sound pretty much the same...and you won't be able to really tell if it does or not unless you go to his house and sit them right next to each other...every camera will record sound slightly different...not to mention you can be a video ninja and change the way it sounds with a few tweaks, too...you could have the shittiest sounding exhaust and make it sound amazing with an audio editing program.

Not trying to have the exact exhaust. I am however, trying to prove to some of these bone heads where I live that it can be done.

Got really pissed yesterday when the guy at Haggard Automotive in Roscoe Illinois laughed and asked why I wanted to get a custom exhaust on a car like that, like its any of his business any way. Ya it's not a 700 HP supercharged Corvette, but it is mine and money is money. I wanted to teabag 'em. Dork probably drives a Hyundai.

I tried to get a pic for you, but it will have to be on a lift to get a good one. Hope you have better luck then what you have had, and my description helps. Are you trying to prove duals can be done? All the way up or like mine? I saw some where someone did dual all the way with cherry bombs about where the resonators are and that was it (didn't sound very good, thats why I had mine done the way I did).

Ya I printed a couple of pics of yours its just getting some one to do it. Seems like these day people should be going out of their way to get business.

I saw the guy with sherry bombs, did not hear it run though, figured it would sound crappy.

I think the roll back what Fuzz was talking about would be a bit much for me. Flow master makes resonator type through pipes. I saw a video of a guy who had an impala SS with those type of resonators and flowmaster 40 series. Sounded good I thought but it was a youtube video...

Dynomax ultra flo X

Ok, found a muffler shop willing to do it my exhaust.

They recommended that I use Dynomax ultra flo X and not flowmasters. They are a flow-master dealer too...lol. They said the roll back on V6's are pretty "poppy" without a resonator just as FUZZ indicated. Flo X would sound very deep with little roll back. They said I probably would not need additional mufflers as the X pipe its self acts as a resonator and the muffler has sound deadening built in. Its like a 2 in one thing.

I opted not to go from the Y pipe flange to true duals. I am having the Y pipe customized with 2 flanges for true duels.

I want to listen to it before they install the full exhaust though.

What do you all think? Good Idea Bad ??

Here is a link to the FLO X

Yeah, I wouldnt go with the FLowmasters, they sound like "tin cans". I would go with either Magnaflow Mufflers or I have heard good things about the Dynomax Mufflers, supposed to be deep sounds similar to the Magnaflow Mufflers. Glad you found an exhaust shop willing to take your money! Pics and sound clips will be a must!

Ya I just called the local Muffler shop and they laughed when I asked about the Dynomax...he said if you want real performance and real sound go magnaflow.
