    I hear that flowmaster is the worst thing you could have done.

    they are a hell of alot cheaper than above also.
    if your car is an automatic, get a stall converter.

    I have hooker and they sound great. I'm going to be putting pacesetter LT's with off road y on soon.

    and if its a 6M get a short stick.

    The exhaust that came on your Hawk should of been left on. The Slp dual dual is one of the better systems.
    And the restrictive part of the Flowmaster system is the 80 series cross flow muffler. Thier single out system uses a better flowing 40 series muffler.

    sfc's, a stall if it's A4, maybe play with your intake now a bit...and by reading this thread take back the flowmaster. it's more of something you see on an old man's truck.

    On muscle cars old or new they sound really nice, plus it gives about 30 lbs of torque.
