So... I'm thinking about going the cheap route, and having a local shop throw on some new mufflers. I'm a little nervous going this route, because I'm not sure what the outcome will sound like. I really like the sound of the Heico setup, but I cant justify spending that kind of cash right now. What do you guys think? I think I'm going with magnaflows or dynomax.

BD5400, thats how I feel too. But the Heico is $1500 bucks. For two Magnaflows installed, a local shop quoted me a $300 installed. I haven't pulled the trigger yet, I'm going to do a little more research. I'll keep you posted.

I pulled the trigger. Two new mufflers and it sounds awesome. Nice low toned growl, with no droning.

I did use the original tips. I'll try and get a sound clip today on my way to work. And some better pics.

Please. If the sound is reasonable (not too loud, but a tad more aggressive growl than the stock) I'd be tempted to follow in your footsteps :).

What rims do you have on your V8?
He has a T6 and the rims are OZ Supperleggra III (taken from another thread)

Here is a really crappy sound clip from in the car. I'll try and get a better one from outside.

Thanks Rarod. I'm loving it, but its causing me to have an even heavier foot...Lol. I think for this tank of gas I'll be getting 1 MPG. Next up will be a custom Y-Pipe.
I live out in the sticks in Olympia, Wa. and the roads are awesome, I love driving home after work every day.

I'm thinking of putting the ELEVATE Sport Exhaust on my 2011 S80 3.2. Does anyone have an opinion about this system?

That actually sounds pretty good. I don't know if I'd ever do it but I definitely wouldn't mind a better sound coming out of my car.

Does anyone know if this would void a CPO warranty? Obviously the warranty would not cover the new exhaust system but I would hope that the warranty would still apply to the rest of the car.
