I went with a reso delete, a dynomax performance mid muffler, single in, duel out. From the muffler, it goes out dual exhaust, straight pipes to the tips. They told me if I didn't like it, and wanted a different muffler, they would change it for me at no cost.
It Sounds good to me and only a little drone while accelerating between 1000 and 2000 rpm under moderate acceleration, and it has that nice BRRRRRPPPPPPP sound when shifting under hard acceleration.
Great shop, Ace Muffler in Westminster, CA if anyone around So Cal is looking for a good honest muffler shop, nice guys that work there too, let me watch every move, and walk around the shop as they worked on my car too. I will try and get some interior videos and a drive buy too. My wife even likes it, she said it sounds sexy and mean lol


and lol at the mechanic Pablo talking at the end of the video asking if I like it or not

This video is a little better, turn up the volume a bit. It was a cold start, so I let it run a minute for the RPM's to come down, and gave it a couple of low revs, as not to disturb my apartment dwelling neighbors.

And stock exhaust, cold start up, it gets SO quiet once it warms up

A few pics






Had them paint the piping with high temp paint, black to blend in better under the car

Yeah, I know, sorry, I will try and get some better ones up over the weekend, it was like a cave in the shop, allot of echo and probably my crappy camera didn't help

Looks good, couldn't view video but I'm sure it sounds good, need to hit those tips with some high temp black or get them powder coated.

I was thinking the same thing. I don't know why I didn't just have the shop paint the tips. Why can't u see the video? I'm going to make a few more this weekend. And try to get them.better quality

And thanks for the reps! I had my first back seat passengers today, my younger daughter said the exhaust was annoying, my older daughter thought it was cool. I don't sit in the back, so I don't care!

I am going out later to do and inside the cabin video, and toss my camera on the ground a do a drive by, I have a place in mind that is not on a public road, it's in a huge parking lot of an old warehouse that is closed on the weekends

You gave me my next mod to do. If you don't mind me asking how much you paid for them to hook it up? I live in San Diego and willing to make the trip to OC to have this done.

Not at all, I paid $295 out the door at Ace Muffler in Westminster, great little shop! I think the price was fair, as most other shops were in the same range of $300 or higher. A 5 star rating on YELP is what made me go there and they held up to it.
Link to there yelp page. Chris is the owner, very cool guy, and loves to talk! Very relaxed thee, they like what they do and it is apparent in their work IMO.

They told me that if I didn't like how it sounded after awhile, to come back and they would change it up with some different mufflers for me to a sound I would prefer, at no extra cost! BUT, I am really liking it so far. You really don't need to spend $1000 on an exhaust system to get the desired affect as I had thought in the beginning.
I was in and out in about 2 hours.

Sounds great! :TU::TU::TU::TU:
Thanks man, I am hoping it doesn't sound too ricey...
I got next to a Honda Si today, and we took off from the light, not racing, but his exhaust sounded like a swarm of angry bees, or a tiny remote controlled airplane lol, that high pitched sound coming out of a single fart can that was almost draggin on the ground, mine was much lower and rumbly than his, but he did have a 4 banger vs my 6

This vid is my favorite, I just love that upshift sound, I wonder if my itune DCX will make it sound even meaner? I can't wait to get a 91 octo tune on her!

Got to about 55 seconds to hear the drive by, there was this security guard poking around, he didn't bother me, and I didn't want to give him a reason too

I have to apologize to everyone, I was mistaken on the muffler I had installed! After a few inquiries from fellow Z members on my setup wanting to know where I had it done and what exact muffler I had gotten, I called the shop to get the mufflers name and part number, and come to find out, I have a Magnaflow! Surprise surprise surprise! ( As gomer pyle would say,lol) It is called a Camaro muffler, I guess it's one they use on the Camaros??
Its part number 12265,

This muffler is selling on amazon for $118

No, I was going to, but I left that part stock for now,I wanted flowmaster, the guy at the shop told me it would make it louder if I put the x-pipe in with a dual in/dual out flowmaster mufflers, and even louder if I went with 2 mufflers, especially flowmasters, he said those are the loudest, as I had originally wanted, he talked me out of it, I mean, he could have done it and charged me allot more, but the shop I went to was real honest and straight with me and my main goal was to get some nice sound, low to no drone, and not attract the PO PO! lol...so far, so good! I saw a cop...I gave it a little gas to see if he would look...nope, he didn't even look at me.
And overall, I am told you really do not gain too much performance, but, mine seemed a little peppier after the exhaust was done, and that was before I had the tune put on, but with the tune on now, man oh man, I love the throttle boost feature!!

I really, really wanted the flowmasters...but, I went with my shops advice and went with the magnaflow, only because, he said the flowmaster will be louder for sure, maybe too loud for what I was asking. I don't want unneeded attention, and he said the flowmasters will give me that unneeded attention here in So. California. The cops love giving tickets for modified exhausts here. SO, went with the magnaflow, and could not be happier with it.
