What up everyone.

I'm just trying to find a nice deep muscle car sounding setup.
Does anyone know of any that would sound good on a rado?

thanks.

it sounds ricey to me at higher rpms. can you get one where you're driving it? sometimes they sound different under load.

yeah i understand it will never be the same as an actual muscle car, but i want to get as close as i can.

Intimid8r : besides hacking out your pre cat what is the rest of your setup? your setup sounded pretty nice.

its all custom stuff. My dads buddy has a muffler shop and he bent new piping and put a new muffler on it. Its a borla i believe. i wanted it louder so i cut open the muffler itself and cleared a lot of the junk out of it. Then welded it back together and thats what it sounds like now. when i got my truck it had a weird setup with a huge fart can sticking out the back so i hacked it all off.

yeah, you're much more likely to get some kind of exotic sound out of our trucks than anything musclecarish.
