Oh, I gotta build that. Really gets the testosterone going. I'll be stopping by the local muffler guy on the way home.

Guess I could do the aluminzed version and weld it myself.

Between the muffler and finding out my 3.0 has the ROW cis system (Waaaahoooo), this is gonna be a fun car.

I know I have posted this before, but I had a co. called Bassani build me a muffler. It looks like the muffler you have but smaller, but it's built like a tank. The craftmanship is amazing. The gases mix in the muffler like a crossover. I put it on and it was to loud. I added some mini dynomax bullets off of it and car sounds awesome. At idle it sounds just a tad louder then stock. When I get on it it sounds great, does not bark like it use to w\out dyno's on it. The kicker is that it out performs the stock muffler, and the bursch I use to have.
Total cost was 200 bucks about 3 years ago.
Call them and they will custom build any type you want. They have been around for years.
Just thought I would post an alternative

Got pix?
I'd like to see those small mufflers.

I made the same mistake and have a 2 in/out sitting in the garage that has both inlets on the same side. I'll hack it up some day as well.

Hmm. What kind of resonance could you expect with that 1-in, 2-out Dynomax setup? Hey Mark, what was it like in general? Sure sounds throaty in those videos.

My Monty sounds great around town, but is starting to get a bit weary on highway trips... plus I'm going deaf from it! If this Flowmaster/Dynomax option reduces resonance, then I'll start building one.

Well the pipe came in and I started hacking up more metal.
I got to the point where I was ready to tack weld the inlets. Fired up the welder and, "PAP"... "PAP"... hmmm... wire isn't feeding... check the spool... DAMN.... out of wire!

So, Leland runs down to the welding supply place... DAMN... closed... goes to two hardware stores in vain... DAMN... no go.

Went to WalMart to get some ceiling hooks for the wife and looked in their hardware section... well, here's some MIG wire it is flux-core, I have a gas welder... well, what the hell, maybe I can meake it work.

Get home, spend 15 minutes swapping the wire from the itty bitty Wallyword spool to the large one for my welder.... take it to the garage, D A M N.... different diameter wire... won't fit in the nozzle.... dig through assorted bag of welder stuff from my father... ah ha!... found four new nozzles... check for fit... D A M N... all too small.

So I am beaten.


damn.



Disclaimer for the vulgarly challenged: Leland nor the SCWDP wish to see any welder or welder accessories actually plunged into eternal fire and damnation. I am just a little put off.

Just for reference I have welded flux-core with gas many times and it works great. In fact I took a welding class a while back and my professor prefered that setupvover just flux-core or regular MIG.
