The exhaust on my '96 is basically stock, but I replaced the the factory mufflers with Flowmaster 40's. I left the stock resonators in place in the back. I think it sounds wonderful. Burbles like a motorboat at idle, sounds awesome when I get on it, yet it's nice and quiet with the cruise control engaged on the highway. ; )

The one in the Youtube vid also has Flowmasters, but uses Borla midpipes and no resonators. I was really torn about taking off the resonators. Almost did, have heard Impalas with them off and they sound great, but in talking to folks you hear the exhaust a lot more on the highway. Think what I did is a good compromise between too quiet and too loud.

Another tip is to wet-sand the exhaust tips with fine sandpaper, then steel wool, and then use some metal polish on them. They will shine up really well!

You love you cars ear piercingly loud. I guess the rest of us a little more subtle. That is ok for a weekend car (my Impala) but not for a daily. When you have some day where you put a tank of gas in a day, that is a long time to listen to the drone.

I think that wagon sounds good.

I have the same argument with the straight-pipe Harley guys. They want to be heard from a mile away. I think that if it's loud
enough to annoy people, it's being rude. My right to swing my exhaust note ends at the tip of your ear.

And I still don't hear my engine-driven fan.....

I DO hear the electric fans roar on in the Impala SS cars. ; )

Wow, I guess my wagon is loud then when the VT's valves open.....


Usually those Flowmaster 40's are real loud, but the resonators must keep them in check. Sounds good for a everyday driver, but I prefer a little more when on the loud pedal.

Here is my old DGGM wagon, Wagon #2, with the stock pipes, 40series Flowmasters and no resonators. I thought it sounded good but it was a little too loud. I think the resonators would've helped a great deal but I wanted the exhaust to exit just behind the wheel. I was told the 50 series Flowmaster would be just a little quieter than the 40 so my plan is to, someday, put 50 series Flowmaster on my current wagon with the tips just hehind the back wheel. I would really like to figure a way to have the exhause exit from inside the rear bumper like the N-25 option on the GS.
