Yep, Jason has a Corsa system on his 98.
it seemed pretty loud to me, so much so that he actually got a ticket.

It was too loud because it had a dime sized hole in the skin. Hence the ticket.

There isn't much detail about your muffler configuration (Offset/centre ? offset/offset).   Any reason you ordered it before being sure it would fit ?

This is a 14" case, using mandrel bends.  There isn't much room for nice bends and a long muffler.  You should be able to get in slightly diagonally using a different bend configuration.

Yeah I was dumb, I swapped the order for a 14in case full boar maxflow offset/center which is a magnaflow knockoff, what size resonator did you use and any sound clips of your setup?

Here is a pic of my Full Boar 14" body mufflers installed with the pipe exiting the sides:

Now that I no longer live in Cali I will get the rest of the exhaust done.

How do you like the sound? Is it similar to magnaflow?

I love the way they sound and I would imagine they sound similar to Magnaflows as they are very identical inside and out.

Ok, a couple stupid questions...

First, i dont know what made me think of this, but what would it sound like if my exhaust system just consisted of a bunch of glasspacks welded together? Would it be quiet, yet not reduce flow, or would it still be loud as hell and just sound like a lawnmower when i get on it?

Second (and more realistically), does anyone know anything about the Walker Quiet-Flow mufflers? Something quieter than what i have would be kind of nice. It sounds great at idle, but it gets too "poppy" when i get on it.

Im going to do some exhaust work come spring and im just weighing my options.

i have a single exhaust setup, 3 inch hogan dp, magnaflow cat, 2.5 cat back to a single magnaflow knockoff muffler (jones full boar) then out a dual tip. no resonator, it sounds great no rasp at all and its a very deep burble at idle. ive gotten many compliments on how it sounds, one guy told me it sounds like a grand national best compliment ever haha.

Hey Aaron, would you post a picture of your muffler setup when you get a chance? I was thinking install a muffler in the spot where the catalytic converter goes and just have them weld pipes in where the OEM mufflers are at.

Photobucket will do pics and vids. Otherwise if you have a YouTube account you're already able to upload vids to your account.

I like my cars quiet and powerful. I see no need to impress the crowd with a chorus of BROOM. As long as I can go quickly, and silently, I'm happy.
