I can't stop yelling over the noise!!!

Sorry -- pics a little out of focus!





Sound while revving...

IDLE to REVVVVVVVVVVVING and takeoff

Sound on turn on...
STARTUP Sound

Sounds are from cockpit with handheld Olympus DSS Voice Recorder.. this is with top down, no radio, in my lap...
(beep= valentine one)

Butt dyno:

OMG! Not only does it sound like you are going faster, there is MUCH LESS HESITATION on full throttle... Turn DSC off and prepare for SHUTTLE LAUNCH.

IT rocks.

Cost: $650 installed

ZonK:

2001 M Roadster..

B&B price: (from website) FBMW-0915
M-Roadster/Coupe W/Twin 2.5 Round Tips
$1,065.00
1997 to 2000

I like the DTMs.. I prefer them on Italian cars. I like the large 4" single-Dinan-style-but-looks-better-than-Dinan system. It was either Magnas or Borla. I would rather pay $650 for a set of mufflers than $1100 for SS, Eisenhaus, B&B. Dinan are much more $$$ and look like crap. The ACS exhaust I do not find pleasant-looking.

There are no DTM or dual tips in the race series. I wanted a racing muffler, that acts and looks like one... I have mulled over this for a while, and selected the Magnas because of performance AND the single aggressive tip. I don't like to be "one of the group" if you know what I mean!

Set up was installed with custom bent pipe, etc. and replaces the factory mufflers from aft of the H pipe back.

Stock exhaust hookup:



The install I wanted required the flanges to be cut off. Many people will object to this because its not plug and play. I however still counter that it is plug and play. You just have to unplug from the cat-back flange including the H pipe to the end, and switch it with someone who owns the stock mufflers. I do not know why anyone would want the stock system. Each muffler and pipe weighs almost 50 lbs, and has the famous "crimp".



I have modified the stereo, alarm, speakers, etc., and who am I kidding? If I lose some cash on a trade-in, so what? This is a high performance car, and I think I'd sell it before trading it in. To someone who appreciates it, that is!!

the stock pipes are not stainless..... the mufflers are.....

therefore, i chose not to go stainless for the pipes for 2 major reasons:

1) stainless does not bend well.. (its better to cast it... )

2) the extra $$$ does not guarantee it will bend well.......

hence.......

no stainless!!

uhhhh what's a call name?
