Car Guys! Flowmaster or Magnaflow?

the wife wants a little noise with her new stang, ive been lookin into the flowmasters and magnaflows. i can get a cat-back flowmaster setup off the net for under $400 shipped, and my local muffler shop wants $650 installed for magnaflows. I know there are some more options out there, but these seem to be the top 2 recommendations in this price range.

what do you guys recommend?

a friend of mine is an avid mustang fan and owner... he just installed a full magnaflow exhaust and it is well worth the extra money... that price is not bad considering that borla would cost or could cost more than that.... just my 2 cents though...

also install is easy so save yourself some money and do the install yourself... with a friend helping

Neither, Borla!
Magnaflow is similar in design, Flowmaster sounds good but is not as good a power maker as the strait through type, but oh that flowmaster sound especially on high compression cammed up small blocks, and 5.0 stangs with no cats. Gotta trip on them flows, whoo whoo!

If you want some sound, Flowmaster.

If you want some extra performance Magnaflow's.

I just removed the flowmaster 2 chamber off of my 2001 Formula. With no cats on the car it sounded good, had some rasp but still sounded good. With the Magnaflow on it still without cats it now is more tame sounding. You can actually have a conversation in the car now at highway speeds.

One of the local guys did a back to back dyno run with the Flowmaster versus the Magnaflows. Picked up 14rwhp on his setup when he changed over to the Magnaflows.

im lookin more for noise than performance, the cars already a handful for her. i did put it through its paces a little and wasnt real impressed. could be that im just too used to how the 10 takes off though. its hard to be impressed by cars anymore since owning a 10.

compared to other cars and my old camaro (rs v6) its pretty strong though.

for her sound is what she is after, i wouldnt mind pickin up a few ponies though.


does the magnaflow setup sound similar to flows? ive heard tons of flows but cant recall hearing magnaflows, if i did i didnt know it.
