angry eyes and exhausts are on!

Did the angry eyes and i think they look awesome. The exhaust i chose is the flowmaster original 40s muffler. To be honest, i think it's kind of too loud...


ps: this is a 2012 sahara.

Doubt there is enough hp gain for me to feel it, but it does feel more responsive off the line (maybe it's just a mind trick). definitely sounds a lot better.

Definitely too loud for my tastes. Perhaps the Super 44 would be a bit more tame. As for the angry eyes, never been a fan.

The resonator will definitely tame it down a bit. Do you think it's too loud? If you like it, rock it man..

They don't call them Dronemasters for nothing! On my old street/strip Mustang, I had 2 chamber flows, headers, and no cats. Around 2k RPMs, that thing would almost cause your ears to bleed.

The newer Super 44 that I recommended earlier has all new baffling inside and really cuts down on the amount of drone.

Here's the old 'stang. IMO, I wouldn't put flows on anything other than a V8.

I removed the resonator 3 days after I put on the muffler. Honestly the muffler alone was on, no drone around 2000 rpm. Without the resonator it's such a b*tch. Lesson learned

Yeah, drone is a killer. Makes extended trips a total nightmare. If you didn't have it with the resonator, definitely throw that sucker back on.

Hmm. That was the very same experience I had with FM and a resonator. The muffler shop I bought it from pulled the FM and put on a straight-through stainless steel Magnaflow withe the resonator still on and the sound is perfect. I think that the baffle plates in the FM create a very difficult and unpleasant soundwave form and the drone on the freeway was horrific. I am very happy with the Magnaflow though.
