Hey all,

Need to put new exhaust under my '55 Custom Royal Lancer with 270 Hemi, and dual exhaust. Any suggestions for an exhaust that will sound throaty, but not obnoxiously loud? I have been searching on YouTube to hear exhaust sound, the flow master sounds OK to me, but my muffler guy hates those. I would like to go Stainless, so any other suggestions out there?

Thanks for your time and input

Every Flowmaster I've tried sounded OK from the outside but had an irritating drone inside the car.

I asked a similar question for my 315 D500 hemi and I got responses like "Not Flowmaster", "Waldrons" (complete system), etc

REFERENCE: http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=63711&...

In the end, I went with my local muffler shop for about CDN$500 for a custom, down pipe back, system. Details: Went with 2.25" pipes once the OE down pipes from the manifold went horizontal. AP XLERATOR BIG MAX® TURBO MUFFLERS and Magnaflow 35190 tips.

All that said, if I was to do it over again, I might have gone with this system off eBay (for US$385 plus US$65 shipping) because the bends look less restrictive than the "custom" job I got:

Thanks for the suggestions! 56 D500 Boy, how did the sound turn of your exhaust turn out?

I used Dynomax Super Turbos on the last car I did. Headers, 2 1/2, no crossover, out the back, stock small block. Actually sounds decent.
I dont mind the 50 series Flowmasters, the 40s are a little on the aggressive side IMO.
