I have a 95 Buick century limited 3.1 V6. I got this muffler not thinking it was gonna sound that good, man was I wrong. It gave my car a mean idle and when you rev it it sounds almost like a Mustang V8. I would suggest getting this product, but if you want it really loud on this car, run it straight muffler no tail pipe. I put the tail pipe on mine and it still sounds great but quieter.

After 2 years and 2000 miles, all in town driving with no abuse, one of the mufflers is coming apart inside. Has a vibration/rattle inside. Probably going to replace it with something different. Disappointed with sound at first, but after running awhile, they began to sound better before the rattle started.

We installed on a 2000 Jeep wrangler and the sound is just a little deeper tone than factory just enough for some rumble but not loud inside!

I have used these mufflers on several different builds now. I have never had a failure that was the result of defects with the muffler itself. Great bang for the buck. Great sound.

        I've used several of these on my Cherokees. I like that they can support the weight of the vehicle without crushing. Sound is quiet, but performance sounding, no droning on my straight 6.

            This muffler delivers great performance and sound for half the price of the 50 series flowmaster. I put this muffler on my 91 S10 with the 4.3 v6 and it sounds like a V8 now. The sound and flow are good without being abnoxiously loud. It'll be the only muffler I buy from here on.

                  Flowmaster's patent on their 40 series muffler expired, So Thrush copied them. They sound exactly the same, and look a little better a half the price of Flowmasters.

                    I own a 95 Ford Taurus SHO. After repairing things nessescary to make the vehicle safe,I decided to install performance exhaust. Of course,everyone was telling me "It's a v6 and you wont get decent sound." Which,being an exhaust expert,I kinda believed.So,I didn't shell out the big bucks for Flowmasters. Boy am I glad. The sound out of these Thrush welded mufflers is perfect,the price is outstanding,and performance is delightful.Thank you Thrush!!!!

                        The backpressure is decreased by 30 percent over stock and they produce a deep performance tone under acceleration that quiets down while cruising.
