i run Magnaflow exhaust (part # 14326) and i love it. just like you said "powerful but not "i need attention and wasn't hugged enough"". i suggest removing the rear muffler (resinator) completly and using stright pipe there and intalling the Magnaflow where the center muffler is :think: that way you see nothing from the back :thumb: and of course, finish is off with a nice crome Mangaflow tip...just like i did :clap: :clap: Muffler-$130, Tip-$40, install-$100...money well spent. you notice a BIG sound difference right away :wink: the only problem is the gas guage might go down a little faster becuase you will be heavy on the pedel for the first couple of weeks, at least...it sounds that good i did not notice any better fuel milage (running about 16.5L/100km), but if i cared about fuel milage........i would have got a Kia :lol: :dance: :lol: :clap:dutchfrompredator said:i want throaty but understated and not over the top. the sound is secondary to the longevity to me so it's got to be stainless, but i've heard some with a very nice tone and am looking forward to that too. i'm going to take your advice and listen on that site. that's what led me to ask about magnaflow. i was able to hear it on their site and they sounded really nice. powerful but not "i need attention and wasn't hugged enough" is my M.O.
