Default Flowmasters Installed

Just got a 40 series flowmaster installed this morning. Stainless steel tip, muffler, and installation for $136. It sounds, I dare say, as good or maybe a bit better than the BTG systems out there. Very good deep sound, with a good bit of backfire, Very low drone on idle, when you light it up there's very little whine, just a nice deep rumble, and at highway speed with the windows down there's a slight hum. I'm very happy, anybody considering a new exhaust system should consider flowmasters.

2 Chamber of 3 Chamber. Also, is the drone/resoance really bad in the intterior. I might get a muffler eventually (need to get True Duals and Headers on my other car first).

Also, I kind of find it hard to get a good rumble from a 4-banger. Unless it has more cylinders and a big cam, it ain't rumblin

With the windows up, there's almost no hum unless you're trying to listen for it, and with windows down and the radio on you don't hear a thing. Well, I do have 2 cams and 16 valves, and it rumbles, believe me. No, it doesn't sound like a 4.6L mustang GT, but then again, it's not a mustang, it's a PT baby!

OHC Msutangs suck when when it comes to sound. Nothing sounds better then a big dsiplacement, high compression, big cammed V8 [8D]

That being said, my friend has a Flowmaster on his 94 Z-28 and the interior noise is just too much. I wouldn't mind a bit more sound (and perhaps a tad bit better flow) but I don't want anything that I can hear just cruising around with the windows up.

I take it you mounted it where the stock muffler is?

You got it. No interior sound unless you're really taching it up, outside sounds great. Original mounting points and all.

It's just a single in and single out. It's a 40 series, and I'm pretty sure it's delta flow. It took the guys about 30 minutes from start to finish, and this was the first PT they'd worked on. They charged me $90 for the muffler, which I think is a bit much, but total with install was $136.

Flowmasters cost anywhere from 79 to 90 at performance and exhaust shops. There is a place down in florida that as awesome prices on flowmaster stuff. The system for the pt's cost 253 plus shipping...not much for shipping. That is the dual system. I also think they sell individual mufflers for around 65 plus shipping. But, 90 really isn't out of the question if you are happy with it.
