why not flowmaster?
Flowmaster doesn't make a catback system for the G6.why not flowmaster?
The GT-R is about $50.00 more than the Magnaflow system that hndah8r went with and then complained about losing torque, which is why he is now looking for something else, and we're about $200 cheaper than the GMPP version. Those are your kit options, from there your option is to put together something on your own, but your chances of having it mandrel bent like the kits mentioned is probably zero, as the machinery that does that is quite expensive and requires regular tooling replacement as they wear with use, making it none cost effective for just about any local shop you'll find. As for materials, most shops use aluminized steel, some by request will use stainless 409, which is quite a bit more $$ and will also rust eventually, if you opt for stainless 304 (the better material) it gets pricey real quick even if you go for the cheap Chinese junk that's out there. If you're just looking for sound and nothing else, I would just remove the factory resonator, if that's too loud for you, use a cheap resonator like the Cherry Bomb.While this has nothing to do with the thread, the above discussion on exhaust is what I have been searching for.
So if I were to buy 80 series flowmasters, minus the res, my car will sound awesome but lose torque? (this being kind of decently priced?) Or I could a magnaflow (dont know how it sounds) and get good performance with decent price. OR I could save up for a while and get a GT-R exhaust and find the ever elusive medium between sound and performance but up the price? Is that accurate?
GTR you got my info wrong. I didnt buy a Magnaflow system, I only bought a Magnaflow muffler and made the diameter of the piping to 2.5". I spent about 250 putting all that together. Yes I lost some torque and I thank you for giving me info for getting some of it back. But like I said I can never see myself purchasing an exhaust for 500 or more. Speaking about exhaust, Im redoing my entire exhaust this week. Ive been talking to a bunch of mechanics and we are coming up with something. Will post after completion.
