Re: Muffler size/ questions !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (jdsr917)

Haha, I was just about to suggest you ask your exhaust questions over here. <p>It's been a while since I've had my S40 but, 2 cats??? I think the second one your refering to is actually just a resonator. There is no mechanical need for this other then sound dampening. You can cut it out and replace it with a stright pipe (JRL Mod) for a little more sound. I did this with my R.<p>I never did an exhaust on my S40 so I can't help you out much regarding the muffler. Sorry. <p>I'm sure someone will chime in that will be able to help you out better.<p>

Re: Muffler size/ questions !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (jdsr917)

I have a 3" in, 2.5" out magnaflow, and it works just fine for me. From the turbo, you have: flex pipe, down pipe, CAT, resonator, muffler... that's it. You can eliminate the resonator for a little throatier/rougher sound if you'd like. I'd do a 3" turbo back using either a 3"/3" or a 3"/2.5"... Any other questions, let us know.<p>As for sound/video, see my video here. You can hear a little of the launch tone. Trust me, it sounds good. <p><A HREF="http://s480.photobucket.com/albums/rr170/S40Racer/?action=view&current=MOV02615.flv" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://i480.photobucket.com/albums/rr170/S40Racer/th_MOV02615.jpg" BORDER="0"></A>

Yes, it will fit on a 2.4i. The exhaust shop should be able to set you up right. I'm not sure of the part number, but any shop that carries magnaflow will be able to hook you up...

Re: (euro3b)

haha were all confused <p>ok so Rich you have a flowmaster 80 series welded in place of stock muffler .....Which sounds amazing !!!!<p>It is know to be loud inside cars.... <p>You said its not in the Volvo so im happy about that....<p><br>Im looking at a magnaflow now for one reason and that is because the muffler is surrounded by a filler which make it much quieter on the inside of the vehicle....<p>So now it comes down to the sick sound outside with sound in the cabin or not as nice sound outside and quiet inside….. <p>ANYONE ELSE got the 80 series ???? <p>does anyone know the size of stock T5 exhaust i know after the muffler its 2 inch <BR><BR>
