Flowmaster 40 Series on 00' Malibu
I got a flowmaster 40 series muffler installed on my 2000 Chevy Malibu along with a Magnaflow Hi Flow Cat. The tail pipe was switched from drivers side to passenger side.
2001 Chevy Malibu 3.1L rod knock
Vehicle had intake manifold gasket replaced, throttle body and IAC cleaned. It then started stall while test driving, followed by starting to make this noise. The day after this video was made, I moved the car into my driveway and it stopped running for good, refusing to turn over. Once I opened it up, found one of the pistons had disintegrated and a chunk of it got wedged in the crank. I also found the head of a valve. My best guess right now is that a valve seat dropped into the cylinder and started to rattle around until it broke the valve, which then busted up the piston. The engine in the car has since been replaced and now runs like a champ.

Malibu Cold Air Intake
Edit: This is an old video from 2010, Check out my new vids for my new car!
I just ordered this cold air intake off ebay, and it is the best 30 bucks I have ever spent. When I first drove around with it installed I couldn't stop smiling :)
Next stop? HID's :)

2003 Chevy Malibu's new muffler
This is a car I bought for my wife to learn to drive in. It seems she's all but given that thought up, so now it's mine to mess with. Only things done so far are a K&N drop in filter and a "3A Racing" muffler a friend gave me. Thank God for freebies. It's nice and bassy, the video does it NO justice because it was distorting the mic on my camera at about 12' away. Sorry the Revs don't seem like much...it has the annoying autotragic 4k rev limiter.
