It is loud but has no tone, I dunno' if a 12" resonator will deepen the tone enough , I may go 16 ..

Damn dude, your car sounds angry, especially at 0:37. Curious though on what kinda catback/axle back you have.

Yeah, now that I listen to it closely I can hear what you are talking about. I never noticed it in real life though (Iím in the car for one thing). I donít think the cameras record the exhaust very accurately either. And most speakers certainly wonít re-produce them well. In my case you canít hear the low frequency stuff on video. And those lows balance/cancel out some of the ďtrumpetingĒ that you can hear. And of course putting the camera 2 feet away from the tailpipes will produce a different sound than what you would hear inside the car or if it drove by.

I have a friend coming by later that has a camera with a pretty good mic. Were probably going to do some fly byís. I wonder how they will sound.

I donít want to come off as meanÖ..but I agree with you. It sounds like crap! It sounds like a Flowmaster with a big leak.:nogrinner

What is your setup again? Headers? X-pipe? Mufflers? Iím going to guess itís mostly in the mufflers.

My friend who just put in resonators used 12Ē jobbies, they didnít do a whole lot. I would go at least 16Ē. Iím not sure resonators are going to change that sound/tone a whole lot though.

Your not being mean,, Yer' right it sounded like ch!t ..

I was running FRPP Shorty Headers (I know shoulda' went LT's but these were ceramic coated and cheap) Bassani O/R X pipe and Saleen Heritage mufflers made by Edelbrock .. (again cheap and but they have absolutely ZERO drone)

I dicked around with it this afternoon, I reinstalled my old over the axle pipes that I had a 20" glasspack installed last year, Yer' right again, they didn't do anything for the tone 'cept quieten the idle .. The rasp was still embarrassingly bad .

So ... I yanked the Saleens and reinstalled my Boomtubes, That changed the tone entirely,, Stil raspy but at least it has a deeper tone and doesn't sound like a 600hp 2-cycle Weed Eater ...

Now,, it's more like a pissed off 4-cycle weed eater ,,,,,

When I clicked on the link, it went nowhere so I just went on your other video that you uploaded on here and went to your new video to put on here. Hope you dont mind!

By the way, talk about mashing through the gears!

Wait, you have 4.10s on there too? Should've look at the signature.. Damn. When I get my DoB setup, I'm gonna have to remind myself to replace my 4.10s with 3.73s!

Start this video at about 4:38 and check out their "traction control". I am scared to think of the cost, but how cool would it be to have like 0 psi in first, 4 psi in 2nd, and then crank it out for rest of the gears? Of course you would have to have a seriously rigged up electric motor operated bypass valve on the blower, but I can dream. Shelby CODE RED Street Test. Tom Nelson of NRE. NRE TV. - YouTube

I can't speak for Flowtech axlebacks, but I have the stock manifolds, UPR off-road x, and GT500 mufflers. It's very mild, but it made a nice improvement in power.
