    I really dont care for the sound of my exhaust. I Have a Mac Catback and O\R Hpipe. I was thinking of having some Flowmasters welded in, or should i just buy a Flowmaster Catback?

    so you just want to change the mufflers? Do you already have the 2 1/2 pipes? I see no prob with this but im wondering why you want to go from one to the other :dunno:

    to me they have a very similar sound :-\ deep and growl for both, maybe the MAC has a higher sound at high rpm but............. :dunno:

    Yeah they are very similar. I have listened to a lot of exhaust and those are definately the hardest for me to tell apart.

    dont do flows. If you want a change than get borlas or magnapacks. Def. dont switch to another chambered muffler.

    Anyways, i would weld the flows in if you want the change. No sense in buying a new catback if you have a mac catback (plus flowmaster tip suck bawlz.)



    To bad you dont have a vert. Other wise you could let the top down and hear the almost true sound of your car.

    I think your car sounds like this (yep, video sucks):
    same setup and cars-
