Has anyone had an issue with wobbling at around 20 to 35 mph?

@  Tobias05 : (06 March 2019 - 09:38 PM)

...trying to convince the wife not to throw a stock replacement system back on...

@  Tobias05 : (06 March 2019 - 09:38 PM)

... i think they have a house brand muffler now? Used to be a magnaflow...

@  Fast86GN : (04 March 2019 - 07:05 PM)

I don't think it would that loud probably depends on the mufflers used?

@  Tobias05 : (01 March 2019 - 03:31 PM)

ZZP 3IN SS Regal exhaust w/plog and DP too loud for a DD?

Hello everyone! Its been a long time!. Looking to get back into the game. Anyone have a GS on the east coast they wish to part with?

@  ejguillot : (14 February 2019 - 09:08 PM)

Still have a Regal GS project that has taken way too long to build, and it's nowhere near done.

@  ejguillot : (14 February 2019 - 09:08 PM)

Same here.

@  Tobias05 : (09 February 2019 - 04:20 PM)

I have a 3" exhaust to a dual 2.5" split.  I have a 3" magnaflow cat and the Magnaflow 12641 resonator (3" in/out, 36: length) and stock 04 GTP mufflers.  I was toying with the idea of deleting to two mufflers.  Would that be obnoxiously loud?  Or would the cat and resonator make it sound ok?

would be very loud, theres a vid on yt of a gtp set up like that, not a 3 inch, so that could only be worse sounding.

Stick with the mufflers.  I've heard a lot of combinations on these cars. 2.5, 3, cat/no cat, res/no res, duals, stock mufflers, no mufflers.  You get the idea.  They seem to never have that muscle car sound.

Just a thought.  I was thinking I would give it a try since it would be cheap to just have them cut out.  Some of the youtube videos make them sound nice at idle, but like crap when they drive by or rev it up.  I was also thinking some glasspacks in the back, but that would probably sound almost as bad huh?

I would not make any exhaust decisions based on YT vids, they sound quite different in real life. I say go for it man, trial and error. Make sure you keep the mufflers though.

Between two of the Regals I owned I had many different exhaust setups so why not try and pick something that sounds good to YOU. I personally had best results with biggest 3" Magnaflow resonator I could fit, no cat and Dynomax VT muffler. Since I've replaced the single 3" Dynomax with dual 2.25" Hooker Max Flows with the same configuration and I absolutely love it. VERY deep sound, I might consider a high flow cat to quiet it down some more to keep the wife happy :icon-lol:

Wish I had a more detailed clip of my 03GS with the electric cutout idle/open/closed etc.... but here's what it sounds like with Ebay OBX headers, 3"DP, Straightpipe, resonator, WOT run at the track....I'm @ 4:07  HTH =3
