Well, that's a fine picture and all, but what about the performance, sound, cost a fraction of some fancy stainless set up, etc.????

Just got my Flowmaster axle back delivered to my door (planetperformace.com). Install took a whoping 20 minutes including getting the 20,000 mile heat and dirt stuck bolts off the original muffler.

I paid $189 for it plus shipping.

The sound is awesome. Nice deep, mellow tone than can be heard in the cabin with the windows up but it is not too intrusive.

As for performance gains, my butt-dyno didn't notice any significant gains, but I've only driven about 1 mile so far.

I will try to get a sound clip and post it as soon as I can.

Ok, here is a sound clip. It is from outside the car at idle, revved to 2K, then 3500, then 5500.

I think this is a 60 series muffler though, not a 40 series. I am not sure as I ordered the axle back as it comes from them and did not specify a certain muffler.

In the photos, try and ignore the trailer hitch :)

All of the exhaust is stock with the exception of the axle back.

After reading reviews on subarureview.com I mounted the 40 Series axle back on my stock exhaust. Great deep sound, not ricey at all. Great buy! My K&N Typhoon kit is being installed today, can't wait!:D
