    New Mufflers...

    I have all Hooker exhuast & really hate the mufflers! Typical fiberglass insulation type problems... they blow out, sound like crap, etc... right now they are 3" hooker mufflers. Had some Flomasters on a different car & liked them. I need to get some soon... any reccomendations? Leaning towards Flomasters, but would like to hear suggestions from you too. It is BBC street/strip.

    Flowmasters are the best you can get. If you want something comparable without the big sticker price, look into Magnaflow.

    Try typing "restrictive mufflers" in the searc box, you will get 49 results. Alot of good reading. Pay close attention to this one, and the link in it.

    Outlaw: this is exactly why I asked... I have heard that somewhere, but I thought it was a rumor. I love the way they sound... but I am looking for the best performance too. All I know is that these are my last Hookers... time for something new.

    There was one on SpeedTalk that Joe Sherman started and the link is http://speedtalk.com/forum/viewtopic...light=mufflers
    It actually talked about dyno tests and talked about running Magnaflow.

    Hope this helps,
    Bill Mitchell
