I have the original 40's on my camaro, ive got a 400 horse 327 in it, comp mag cam 244 dur .501 lift, sounds really good at idle, and u can definatly hear it a few blocks down when u get on it.

But if u like loudness which i do, install a few electric cutouts so u can open the headers up, , the electric cutouts can cost asmuch as a good muffler system so, if ur willing to spend it go for it.

Or just go with what someone else posted and get the glasspacks.

Flowmasters

Doc here,

I have the 40 series on the Vette in the Avatar, It sounds awesome everywhere EXCEPT 1500 to 1700 RPM..

There it vibrates the windows in the car...and sets up sympathetic Vibrations throughout the floor pan, Vibrates the guy's kitchen Window next door on Cold morning / high Idle warmups..and will set off the nearest "Ricer" alarm while cruising through a parking lot (typically 1500 rpm's) or down the main drag at 25 mph..all the parked car alarms go off...

Either way...your not going to cruise anywhere "Stealth"

Doc

I've come to find that the Flowmasters have that raspy tone. The Magnaflows have a deep rumble, plus they roar when you hammer it. They just scream power

Isn't that the point of loud exhuast? Sometimes between my classes at my university, Ill cruise around campus in my truck just to set off car alarms with dual flowmaster 3"40s headers and a big cam. I bust out laughing everytime!! College tuition well spent!!!
