Now I've heard that flowmasters are horrible at making power, but I love the sound. So give me your thoughts & opinions on a good sounding cat-back exhaust.
I want something that will not make me hate driving the car because it's loud and annoying.
Has anyone heard anything good about flowmaster super 44's?
Congratulations on the new ride, it sounds like you picked up one sick Bullitt, definitely post us some pictures when you have a chance.
As far as exhausts go, the 44s sound really good and will pick you up some power as well. The only negative to be mentioned is that many of their systems are aluminized steel as opposed to stainless steel and can ware quicker as a result.
In my opinion Borla makes the best sounding and highest quality systems on the market, however they do charge a premium for these. If you can afford their systems, particularly Stinger S type, I know you will be thrilled. Magnaflow, Bassani, and SLP all make great sounding and performing systems as well and they are a little more reasonable priced.
I had the SLP Loudmouth on my 04 and was really pleased with the tone it made, but may be a little aggressive for you taste. Take a look on our site we have clips of nearly every system on the market.
I hope this information helps and if you have any other questions, feel free to get back in touch. Best of luck!
