    New Exhaust

    Got a new exhaust installed.
    Custom 3" mid with cat and resonator. 2.5" Y to a set of custom mufflers. (As in, they built the mufflers for me.)
    Very deep in person. Not too obnoxious, they get loud on acceleration, they scream when you floor it, but quite down when you're at speed.

    Might be a bit too loud for me, still not sure.. but very, very, deep... No rasp.

    Phone is about 8 feet away.

    Thanks.
    Nothing to tell really. 3" Midpipe with Resonator, still have Catalytic. Ends in a 2.5" Y pipe, going to two canister style mufflers. The tips are just some cheap generic, but they do the job.
    They have a perforated core, with a wrap insulation. Tried a bunch of different mufflers/resonators...Vibrant, FlowMaster, Magnaflow.... picked these out, they call them RCMuffler.
    Done by a local shop known for custom work called HotRod Scotts.

    I agree they do sound deep and pretty good on the potato camera there. Sounds like you got a winner!

    very nice, but if they are not at least 400 series stainless they will be short lived!
