Looking for a clip. I've hunted YouTube and can't find a cammed V with 3" B&B and catless with headers. Hoping one of you guys are running this setup so I can hear it. I posted on my magnaflow or corsa thread with an update and I'm considering ditching both the magnaflow and corsa for a 3" B&B system.

How's drone with the B&B?

Lol! I saw that clip but I thought it was a catted setup. I gotta admit... Not very impressed judging off that clip. Not only is it rather quiet to me, it doesnt have a very impressive tone to it either. Maybe its a bad clip but the magnaflow sounds a lot better than that does IMO. Only attractive thing about it is that it's 3" and has 4.25" tips. That's a shame cause I've run B&B on an old vette I had in the past and loved it. That sounds nothing like it though.

Would 3" kill torque over the 2.5?

Lol! That's been discussed here multiple times. I went through that debate when I was ordering kooks for my old car. Some said 1-3/4 were better and some said 1-7/8 were better. No one had any hard dyno numbers to back up their argument.

I would personally rather have 1-3/4 only for clearance reasons but which is better of the two... Who knows? Lol

1. B&B
2. Magnaflow
3. Tie between Corsa and Borla because they both sound like shit to me. I hate how raspy they are.

I'll have a clip after I install all my go fast goodies. Should be done in a few weeks.

Yes! Clip please!

I'll agree on the borla sounding like shit. It's rather quiet and boring. Not worth the money. The corsa though sounds good IMO. I would have tied it with the magnaflow at number two. It has a nice sound... Just not quite as deep.

I have a built 402, kooks 1 7/8, no cats, and full B&B 3" all the way back and i have to agree it is too quiet. It does however have a nice deep tone just too tame.The B&B mufflers are big and heavy, I always wondered how restrictive they are.

Bud... Yeah, I've always known flowmasters to be restricting.

Need mo powa... Do u have any clips by chance? It does have a nice deep tone to it. I've always been a B&B fan but their larger cases mufflers they offer for the V are quiet. Wish they offered the B&B bullets for our cars. I wouldn't think they'd be restrictive though. Prob a straight through design like magnaflow. My corsa mufflers are heavy. Way heavier than I thought they would be.

EPIK
07-18-2012, 03:39 PM
That is my exact setup. I am running B&B 1 3/4 LT's, 3" catless X pipe, & 3" catback with DMH cutouts in the catback. I love the sound, but I will tell you this, in certain low RPM ranges the drone is the worst drone I've ever heard in any car I've owned or rode in. Almost migraine inducing LOL... BUT once you get above that range it's not loud in the car at all. On the other side of the coin, it's the best sounding car I've ever owned & it gets compliments & turns heads daily LOL. I have a clip on Youtube, but after about 10 seconds of idling & 1 rev, I open the cutouts up. Video really doesn't do the sound much justice though, it sounds MUCH better in person. Very deep & bassy with a nice rasp to it.


Here is a clip... I can possibly get some more today with my iPhone if you like?

EPIK... CAR SOUNDS AWESOME!!! Think i may now be a fan of the B&B. The drone scares me a bit though but that would be my exact setup. Headers, catless, x-pipe, cutouts and b&b 3" if i did it. Please get more vids!! Maybe some driving vids and stuff so i can hear a couple different variations of sound. Im going to get a video or two of my corsa soon. Sounds really good and aggressive, just a little higher pitched and different than im used to.

VEMON... Can't wait to see those wheels on your car. You're welcome bud! My ass still hurts from fedex this morning. lol My old car is kooks 1-3/4, catless, magnaflow catback with the small magnapacks installed. Sounds good but not much different than the magnaflows in the catback to be honest. Not to mention they wont fit in stock muffler location because they are a tad too long. I had to straight pipe the muffler location and install the magnapacks behind the x-pipe under the car. Still sounds nice... but i wouldn't bother changing it. Not worth the money for the tiny difference they made but they do sound nice. Magnaflow does sell some race mufflers though that are much shorter (4" length and 6" length that come in 4" and 6" diameter). Those would obviously be much louder than the standard magnaflows. I've heard them. They sound nasty but a little raspy for my taste...

I have only heard the Magnaflow in person. Although I do like how much quieter they are in the car compared to my B&B, on the outside, the B&B takes the cake! I do have these vids for the meantime, although they probably won't help much LOL

The in car Vid was shot with the windows down & I can't remember if that was with the cutouts cracked open or not? The dyno vid is with the cutouts completely closed

The magnaflow does sound nice. I had it on my old car. Not too incredibly loud inside but sounds good outside the car for sure. Has that deeper tone thats comparable to the B&B. The corsa is almost silent inside the car and loud outside but doesn't have that really deep tone to it that i'm used to. Only major bonus to the corsa is the no drone. That is very nice after driving around in a drone zone with no mufflers. lol But i think i can handle a little in the car. I don't mind hearing my exhaust a bit while driving.

Im pretty sure that first vid would be cutouts open cause its LOUD! lol The second vid sound nice though. The B&B has a really nice tone to it. Its not as loud in comparison to either the magnaflow and the corsa when u compare them all catless with headers but it sounds nice and throaty. Im just in love with the fact that its 3" and has those sexy 4.25" tips. If it wasnt for that, i don't think i'd be as attracted to it. lol

Well, B&B exhaust is VERY loud, but also, that vid was recorded with my old LG droid camera phone which always made the exhaust sound louder than it was. My iPhone however doesn't pickup the exhaust sound very well on camera until the cutouts are open.

Not hating on them, they just have a certain sound that always sounds the same no matter what V8 engine they are on. It's definitely a classic sound, but I prefer something different on my Cadi.

Not sure how restrictive they are in comparison to other mufflers though?

Lol! Not the metaphor i would have used but close enough.

Flowmaster mufflers in general are restrictive and he's right, they do sound pretty much the same on any v8 you put them on. A very generic and common sound but yes, they do sound good. I just consider them the cheaper option of the bunch out there. They aren't stainless and the casings really look basic being painted black or grey. Nothing fancy. So... For that reason, i'd rather have something a little nicer up under the ass end of my V since they're visible.

It's so hard to tell by just talking to people how bad the drone really is. Everyone has their different opinion on what's tolerable of obnoxious. One guy may think its horrible and the next might not even be bothered by it. I assume every exhaust other than corsa will drone at least a little bit.

That was on the Hwy. Drone is near non existent between 70-85mph, but if you cruise on the streets in 6th gear, below 65 mph is where it is VERY deep & VERY loud!

I cruise in 6th gear a lot to save gas & at around 50-60 is where it's TERRIBLE!!! Far worse than my cammed/Full exhaust Fox body. BUT, I noticed that if I crack the cutouts a tad, it relieves the pressure & makes the drone more tolerable. Of course this makes it louder outside & may draw too much attention. My cutouts are located between the rear end & the mufflers.
