anyone have a magnaflow on their ETA?

if you got a magnaflow on your ETA get me a good video clip of what it sounds like and let me know which magnaflow. im trying to go for a deep rumble/deep throaty sound. if you could help me out with that i'd appreciate it. if you could get idling/pulling away/shifting/rev to say 2.5K it'd be even better.

I'm getting a magnaflow 14815 for my ix. I don't know if I am keeping my old school ansa or not. The 14815 mufflers sound amazing and the price is unbeatable. I'm sure it would sound the same on an eta.

the mag40 was a model they produced back in 2004ish. it would be the super 40 model part number 952446. i think. mine originally came off a mid 90s maxima that was goin to the crasher from my old work, then put on my mazda, then it made its way home on the e30. all of that work totalled $2 in a reducer
