    Anyone use a magnaflo muffler?

    I have a triflo cat back with Kooks headers and low restriction cats. I love the triflo, especially the quad tips but I'm looking to replace the muffler with something that sounds a bit deeper. I am limited because I need to find a muffler with a 3" inlet and (2) 2-1/2" outlets to bolt directly in place of my current triflo muffler, does anyone have any feedback on this? I see Magnaflo offers a muffler which will fit in polished stainless steel, does anyone use magnaflo, how does it sound?

    I have magnaflow...I think it sounds great, but it can be too quiet for some people. With your headers it'll be louder then mine...at cruising speeds it's a low rumble with no drone, but get on it and people can tell you're coming. Idle is kinda quiet but sounds good IMO.

    My buddy has one one his 99 SS with stock manifolds and it is quiet at idle but sounds real good as he opens it up on the throttle. That's what I plan on putting on my street car.

    Besides sounding real sweet at WOT, Magnaflow also flows REALLY well.

    I want the Magnaflow! Hooker cat backs look like shit, but sound good. The Magnaflow looks good and sounds awesome. Can't wait to hear it with a big cam and my longtubes with no cats.

    Magnaflow Quad Tips

    Does anyone have the Magnaflow Quad tip exhaust on their car. It looks like the corvette set up. Ive seen a lot of the Dual tip and they look great. Im am leaning towards the quad tip look though any suggestions.

    I have just the Magnaflow muffler on my stock Ws6 pipes... No drone in the cabin and loud enough at WOT... Some people say its loud but I don't hear it. I think it is a great balance in sound and I added the dual Magnaflow tips for looks....

    i have the flowmaster 40 series with the 3 in 2 2.5 outs it sounds great nice and deep at idle, and loud when you stomp it. It is flowmasters highest flowing muffler, yet people here say that it doesnt flow that well, all i know is that it flows better than stock and sounds great. Flowmaster is a very reputable company.
