hey guys i know this is a mustang site, but my last car was a 2002 S-10 Xtreme 4.3 V6 5-Spd manual. Blue with silver racing stripes, K&N CAI, Dual flowmaster 40's, powertech proframer, the works.anyway to the point....i just found a clip of my flowmasters that i had saved on the comp.. (thought i got rid of it) and i couldnt beilive the sound i got from my flowmasters....made that v-6 pickup sound like a muscle car...so just to get an idea of the sound you get with flowmaster...thought i'd add that clip. Also gonna put some pics....
first heres the exhaust clip..... TRUCK FLOWMASTERS
heck of a truck...but this mustang beats the pants off of it....
I just installed a single Flowmaster, not really sure wich model, but it sounds pretty good, I don't have dual exhaust holes yet and the guy at the muffler shop said it might be more likely to make the raspy popping sound with duals. I will probably go ahead and get duals when I get a body kit. It is pretty loud though, especially if I am running about 80mph on the highway, there is a low resonance inside the car. I am thinking of installing some dynamat to deaden some of the sound.
I am thinking that if i dual it out it may deaden the sound some since there are two mufflers instead of one, any thoughts on this subject? Anyhow, here is the clip, if it works.
IMO, the exhaust is sweet, it sounds really good. It has a low grumbling sound right when your cruising and it sounds great. BUT, it is very loud. I'm going to put some sound deadoner in the trunk to reduce some of the low grumbling that gets to your ears. Tomm im going on a 700 mile trip without it, and whether or not I can walk out of the car with or without a headache, will determine whether should try for the deadoner tape, or return it. Yeah... it maybe a bit too much for me.
But I did some decibel numbers on the car. The stock numbers were what I got as a reading, they may differ from the original ford.com readings, but I used them as a control.
*All conditions done with windows up, fan off, and radio off*
-1 foot from exhaust tip Idle - 63 DB
-1 foot from exhaust tip 2,000 rpm - 80 DB
-1 foot from exhaust tip 3,000 rpm - 82 DB
-Cup Holder Idle - 56 DB
-Cup Holder 35 mph - 69 DB
-Cup Holder 45 mph - 72 DB
-Cup Holder Full Throttle - 84 DB
-1 foot from exhaust tip Idle - 78 DB +15
-1 foot from exhaust tip 2,000 rpm - 88 DB +8
-1 foot from exhaust tip 3,000 rpm - 92 DB +10
-Cup Holder Idle - 52 DB -4 (due to low pitch)
-Cup Holder 35 mph - 70 DB +1
-Cup Holder 45 mph - 73 DB +1
-Cup Holder Full Throttle - 89 DB +5
I hope this helps people get an idea about how loud it really is.
I have to admit, at sometimes it can be annoying.
