This is a cheap MP3 player taped to the rear license plate on mine. Just a two minute drive around the neighborhood, maybe 3200 rpm tops. Two stock front Lumina exhaust manifolds with a cat in the stock location. 2.5" from the manifolds to the cat, 2.25" back to the Spintek muffler.

The exhaust tips are Magnaflows:



The sound volume is a bit high for me. I bought a set of Corvette resonator tips for the car, but I don't know if it's going to make any difference.

There are plenty on YouTube. Just searching for 3.4 DOHC gives plenty of interesting results there.

Mine had magnaflow muffler and a cat initially, sounded like a ruddy Harley. I put a CC insert in the pipe between the cat and muffler and it was a lot more to my taste (quiet!)

WOW! That sounds great!
I have always wanted to hear a 3.4TDC with a yoshimira slipon exhaust as the muffler. http://www.yoshimura-rd.com...ndex.aspx?imsec=road <-- The RS3 is the muffler I am speaking of.

I ended up with the flowtech afterburner 3 inch inlet dual 2.5 outlets fieroguru has it on his 4.3 v6 and it sounded pretty good. I drove the car over to the muffler shop and it will be done on Thursday i will try to do a video so you can hear what it sounds like

I'd send you a copy of mine but honestly, it sounds like crap to me and is way too loud. I'm looking for a better sound that's somewhere below the ear shattering sound of a sonic boom up close. I would have said afterburner but, it appears that's actually a marketed name and I don't want to confuse the two. My exhaust was installed in Huntsville, AL by whoever Fiero Factory uses and it's a glass pack with a centered T entrance from the downpipe and exits out both ends of the glasspack. I don't recommend it.

My son and all his friends think it sounds great, I don't. Too darn loud.

What you just decide that I'm drunk? You can't decide that I'm drunk. I make that decision! That decision is mine and God's!
