    Yeah, I'm not really displeased with my Thrush Turbos just wanted a bit more volume. I've owned lots of different muffler types on various vehicles. I probably should have bought a couple straight through design (magnaflow) or even the Cherry Bomb Vortex.

    Ah, MAC, I ran a prochamber and their mufflers for quite awhile. In fact, my wife’s S197 has a total MAC system front to back. Good stuff and I forgot I have some relevant videos that could help.

    My ‘98 GT with MAC mufflers and factory h-pipe. It was still pretty quiet.



    My 98 GT after a PI swap with long tube headers, an off-road X-pipe and the same MAC mufflers:



    My ‘98 GT and Magnaflow Magnapacks but with tail pipes. It was pretty loud!



    Wifey’s S197 with MAC 1.75” long tube headers, Prochamber and axle back, just for kicks:

    Sounds damn good! While I absolutely love the sound of the Mac flowpaths, I want to kick Mac for their quality. Like I get they are a small shop but come on.

    My favorite H pipe when I had stock manifolds was the MAC three piece design though. It fit so great and the adjustability and ease of install because it was three piece was awesome.

    The Mac flowpath cat back had serious figment issues. It was fixed by an exhaust shop cutting and moving things but still.

    The flowpath cat back sits in my garage in the old box my borla stringers came in. I’ve been meaning to get rid of it but I don’t have face book so I don’t know how to sell locally and I don’t want to throw them away. I literally just want to give it away lol.

    If the stingers didn’t sound so sexy I’d have the flowpaths installed. They are like flowmasters mixed with Magnaflow with such a great flow rate and tone. Not too loud either.

    He is out in Texas, I believe.


    Added a video of my wife’s s197. Arguably the best sounding 3V I’ve ever heard but I’m a little biased :p MAC... They were certainly better in the early 2000’s! Their catback had just enough adjustability for me to get the tips perfect for my taste.

    Regarding the lack of good muffler shops in your area, check if there are any performance chassis shops in your area. There is one in my area and he did a great job modifying my exhaust system to fit and work well.

    I had Magnaflows with a Bassani X-pipe with high flow cats on my '94 Cobra. Also FRPP shorty headers. I wish I had made a recording. The Magnaflows were all stainless including the pipes. Many systems are just stainless mufflers and that is all the warranty.
