i am looking to get an exhaust, ill probably go with a trubendz system, but i don't know what kind of muffler i want to put on it. how did you guys find out what kind of sound you liked the most, and what mufflers made your car sound like it?

ok

now im torn between flowmaster and borla, what is the difference between them.

from what i've read borla gives more performance but it isn't as agressive as flowmaster.

Go with the borla is you want a nice smooth sound, go with the flowmaster is you want a more raspy, aggresive sound. I don't they are available anymore but I really like my Dynomax.

There is almost no difference in performance from Borla to Flowmaster. They are both made almost exactly the same, just produce different tones. The borla is quiet until u stomp the pedal. The flowmaster will give you a very aggressive sound at all times. I personally like to be heard coming a mile down the road, so i went with Flowmaster. It is all up to personal choice though.

i think im going to go with the borla

driving around with the flowmaster sounds like it might get annoying after a while

thanks for the help

Here is my cougar with Trubendz Dual Aluminized with a DynoMAX muffler (dynomax is very comparable to Borla... Borla replaced it :) )


Mods during this video that might affect sound: 99 SVT Engine, KKM intake with ProFlow 75mm MAF, Gutted Pre-cats, TruBendz Dual with Dynomax muffler, 3" oval rolled tips...

i am going to get the dual exhaust aluminized steel with the borla muffler. but i was wondering about the 3" tips, for the people that put the system on themselves did you have to do any adjustments or was it a direct bolt on. 3" seems really big for the tip on a cougar

good choice! I have the exact same one. I have the standard 3" Chrome tips cut at 45 degrees, and let me say, they are not as big as you think. Every new car I see (including Cavalier LS sport, 350Z, neon srt-4) have larger tips. Just make sure you get rolled tips...cuz with the standard ones, you can't even see the tips from the back of the car, only the side.
