  • Different Muffler's

    What have you lot ran and how did they sound? Got any video clips? I'm contemplating a new back box and would like to hear what you lot have to say. I'm really quite a fan of the stock sound, so maybe a more emphatic version is what I'm looking for.

    RE: Different Muffler's

    Way back I autoXed a 91 in CS and ran a supertrapp. Much like adjustable shocks, it did a good job of serving both duties- I removed all the discs when I was autoXing and then just reinstalled them to quiet things back down. Removing all the discs essentially made it a straight pipe. It was loud with discs in - but definitely livable.

      You know how I feel about the subject, Jack. Flowmaster 40 all the way.

        I've been wanting to get a different tone out of mine as well..
        They had a list on M.net a while ago. I'll look for it later.

          I quite like the sound of the flowmaster 60 too.

          The racingbeat ones normally sound a bit much to me.

              For what it's worth, an Enthuza XR Lightweight should be considered for track use only, in my opinion.

              It's loud.

              I might try out the Flyin' Miata muffler, since it's made by Thermal R&D and I like the stuff they sell.

                Does anybody on here have the BEGi center exit exhaust? I haven't been able to find any sound clips of it.

                  I had FM duals on an NB, they were okay. Nothing exceptional about them, but nothing bad either. IMHO the FM/Thermal stuff is a bit over priced.
                  For an NA I prefer Racing Beat resonated version, or Borla. This is without other mods.
                  To be honest, for an inexpensive setup I wouldnt hesitate to use an OBX catback on an NA, but the tip needs changed to be less rice-tastic.

                  For a turbo etc then none of those will suffice. Enthuza is hard to beat valuewise.

                    Its a full 3" no cat turbo exhaust and without a turbo will be louder then HELL :D

                      ^ Yeah that's what I thought. I was mainly trying to find better pictures of it to use as an example when I go to get one fabricated. There's a guy here in Covington that does a lot of custom exhaust stuff for hotrods/track cars/whatever.

                      Probably going to just do a Flowmaster 40 or Super 40 like before but with 2.5in. piping this time instead of 2.25 (in anticipation of the blower). My old NA had a really unique, raspy sound with that setup that straight through mufflers don't have.

                            Actually, it's called "the Stumpy"

                            Is it loud? OMG yes haha. Is it unbearable? For a 15 minute commute, or on the way to an event? Not really. For anything other than that, yes, it would get old fast. HOWEVER, I have verified power gains (not much, but better than nothing) with this thing, AND it weighs less than 6 lbs, so for a pretty much dedicated car, it's hard to beat (and only cost about $70 for all the parts + a couple beers for a friend to weld it)


                            EDIT: It's great for scaring old people, pets, small children, and just skittish pedestrians. If I time the shifts just right, it'll make a fairly significant pop on each upshift. I've had at least 1 guy duck for a particularly enthusiastic pop (honestly, it surprised me, sounded like a gunshot under my ***). I like it though, because the exhaust is extremely talkative (burbles on decel, pops, vastly different notes for constant throttle, acceleration, etc) so it's just another way for me to be in tune w/ what the car's doing on course.
