New Exhaust
« on: January 05, 2009, 05:13:26 PM »

Soon I plan on getting the exhaust pipes done on my 69 300 from front to back, but I have had some discussions with which mufflers to use. Me and several people I know all agree Flowmasters are the brand, but I'm in between on going with the Super 40's or the Super 44's. When I listen to the sound clip on their website, they sound almost identical.  I'm going for the deep sound with the HP rumble. Would anybody hear recommend one over the other?
One more thing.....I am also considering adding  "dump" exhaust with electric switches so I could scare the piss out of the tuner guys when I pull up next to one. Would this be overkill ? I have no idea what the cost to add the dumps. Any suggestions ?

Dynomax Super Turbo.
People tell me that my exhaust sounds awesome.
I have a 440 with some mild upgrades and TTi 2-1/2" system.
I heard the Flowmasters, and to me they sound too much like a Chevy or a Ford.
The Dynomax do give a true Mopar sound,IMO.

Ya think the Ultra Flo SS mufflers would be too loud?

Your car sounds good Cbarge. I think I'm going to have to go talk to my muffler guy this week, who also happens to be a Mopar guy, and get his opinion too.
He did a nice job on my Imperial back in 07.
Dynomax is certainly an option now. Thanks

Make sure the exhaust extends past the body line or at least reached the bumper or valance.  It will keep the cabin noise down.
 
Weaburns car sounds good, but smells like Polar bear Dung.

I would stay away form the flowmaster mufflers...you'll end up with a nice drone in the car while cruising...plus they just don't sound right.
 
I have 2 1/2 dynomax super turbos on the wagon..off factory HP manifolds and the car sounds great...on the family vaction in the wagon last summer the wife and kids never complained about the exhaust noise while cruising for over 1000 miles....
 
And  Yes Steve... I steered around the polara bear poo....

Hey Polarco, this is not what I want to happen once the exhaust is intalled.

If you're sold on Flowmasters, go with them.  I think they are too loud and used Turbos on my car - but to each their own.

I always use Flowmasters 40's.
The deepest rumble comes from the regular "40 series".
The "Super 40" and the "Super 44" are quieter.

Electric cutouts are pretty cool but expensive.....

http://store.summitracing.com/egnsearch.asp?Ntk=KeywordSearch&DDS=1&Ntt=electric+exhaust+cutout&x=0&y=0&N=700+115&searchinresults=false

They don't sound like open headers but they do make it known you're there!   a friend has em' on his 65 Belvedere 426 Wedge car ( motor change coming soon).    

we've got Dynomax Super Turbo's on 6 cars around here,  had 1 friend bound & determined to use Flowcrappers.....he got the 50 series & was sorry he did.    Drones bad between 40 & 50 MPH. 

I put Flows on My dart with the TTI system almost 10 years ago....didn't keep em' a year. switched to Dynomax & never looked back.

If you want the same sound but a bit louder the Ultra Flow Dynomax is the one to get.  the Ultra's are about the same at Idle & Cruise but they really "bark" at WOT compared to  the Super Turbo's.    Super's run about 45.00 to 50.00 for a large case version &the Ultra's are about 80.00 ea.   

The other thing is that even the Super Turbo's are proven to outflow a Flowmaster & the Ultra's  flow even better.    Borla's flow even higher & sound good too but are real expensive.

I've used Accurate for my exhausts systems before.  Excellent pipes but the mufflers they use are no great shakes.

My '68 Polara had Blue Bullets, AND a nasty attitude     I don't know who made them though.
