Auger Style Muffler on V6 3.8L Firebird
I thought I'd share this with whoever cares. This is probably the worst
sounding V6 ever made, and this is my solution. I still have the dual Exhaust muffler in the rear, the auger
muffler is in place shortly after the Y pipe. The idle volume is better,
but not the biggest area of improvement. It was getting embarrassing to
accelerate in this car because 4-5k rpm sounded like you were strangling a
cat over a megaphone. Now it purrs; still louder than factory, but not

just fitted. It's much quieter and has a better tone with the Magnaflow's.

A car's Exhaust system plays a major
role in controlling the hot gases exiting the motor. Like a musical
instrument in the hands of a master musician, systems are tuned to the
characteristics of a particular engine. Two of the most popular
manufacturers are Flowmaster and Magnaflow. Both brands started in
California and are similar to one another in their pursuit of higher flow,
better durability and amazing performance tone. But each relies on
completely different approaches to achieve the same results.
Flowmaster Exhaust Systems
The Benefits of a Flowmaster Exhaust
Flowmaster is legendary among hotrod purists and muscle car maniacs for
rugged construction and powerful, race-inspired tones. Homegrown with
pride, Flowmaster Exhaust systems are
made right here in the United States from mandrel bent, aluminized or
stainless steel tubing. Their Flowmaster American Thunder Exhausts and the Flowmaster Force II system use
battle-tested chambered mufflers to maximize, you guessed it...the flow.
Removing the racket, highly engineered baffles cancel excessive noise by
bouncing sound waves into each other. As if that's not enough, an area of
low pressure is created inside of the muffler to scavenge more Exhaust from the cylinders. What does this mean
to you? It's locomotive power that doesn't anger the neighbors while they
make breakfast. What's more, each muffler has staying power to match. With
no packing to blow out over time, that amazing performance sound lasts the
life of your vehicle. Best of all, each kit is custom made for an easy
Magnaflow Exhaust Systems
The Benefits of a Magnaflow Exhaust
Magnaflow is quickly becoming the system of choice for a smooth, aggressive
rumble and low interior resonance. Quality, power and great sound are the
objectives and Magnaflow has accomplished the mission with their Exhaust systems. Proving that the underside of
your car can look great too, most Magnaflow cat-back systems are composed
entirely of stainless steel, with polished muffler cases. And don't
worry—there is plenty of zing to match the bling.
Straight to the point, Magnaflow mufflers feature a straight-through design
for unimpeded Exhaust flow through
perforated tubing. Keeping their reputation untarnished even on the inside,
each muffler is packed with stainless steel wool, far outlasting the
fiberglass used to pack lesser mufflers. Magnaflow Exhaust systems also magnify flow with mandrel
bent tubing, further increasing horsepower and torque. Only
have a driveway to work with? No problem! Magnaflow kits bolt up in a snap
with stainless steel hardware and no modifications using the factory Exhaust hanger.
What's the Right Performance Exhaust
System for You?
When it comes to performance, Flowmaster and Magnaflow have really done
their homework. With a ton of great features to add a heartbeat to your
ride, both options are a huge upgrade over your factory Exhaust system. Getting Exhausted from trying to decide on which kit to
choose? If so, check out our Magnaflow reviews and Flowmaster reviews to

1967 67 Pontiac Firebird -- 326 V8 Engine Running MagnaFlow Exhaust Sound
Gets good around 00:50... See my website (http://www.firebird67.com) for
current restoration progress.
So, the engine is a rebuilt 326 V8, the headers are Doug's Headers
(Pertronix), and the Exhaust system is
MagnaFlow: dual pipes to a X-pipe then into dual mufflers.
It is running incredibly rich. It has guzzled 10L of petrol and travelled
not even a fraction of an inch. The insides of the Exhaust pipes are already black, and the spark
plugs are covered. But, no point in calibrating this carburetor, I have
just rebuilt a QuadraJet to put on very soon...
