Anyone here familiar with the Magnaflow xl turbo muffler? I'm looking to
get a new muffler cuz one of my tailpipes is bent , and I just want a better sound. I just hope this one doesn't sound like a weed eater....any thoughts are appreciated :lol:

Hey thanks Nuke! :D ..........now just so I'm not wasting money, I am correct in thinking that the muffler is the biggest factor in getting a sportier exhaust note......right?

Well..it does change the exhaust tone but it makes it sounds ricey most of the times....if you want to have a better overall sound without having people looking at you and saying ohh that guy just bought a fart can... i'd recommend you to get new headers, mandrel-bent exhaust pipe and a cone filter... only then will it sounds like the sweetest melody :)

But ok..i know its pricey....but i guess you could upgrade your car part by part :)

But anyways...magnaflows sells pretty nice products that actually works

OR you could replace your muffler with a cheap normal one, save your money up, buy an actual "sports car" to supe up and use the escort as a winter beater...

just for the record that kind of crap isn't accepted here. We are an escort board... big suprise. If you don't want to hear tips about making them faster I'd suggest you try another board.

SORRY ESCORT FORUM FOR MY NEGATIVE COMMENTS! You are right, I take it back. Modifying cars is a worthy endeavor regardless of the type of car it is, unless of course we are talking about Dodges. I'm just in a really really bad mood lately since my girlfriend recently dumped me... something about a tiny shifter...

Oh and as for Magnaflow mufflers I have them on my vette. They sound great and more importantly they aren't obnoxiously loud, fairly quiet at idle even...

Well......first of all, of the three vehicles that I own, the escort is definitely my favorite. I have a 91 egt and I love it despite it's many blemishes. Sure, many of my friends think it's hideous, but who cares. It always manages to put a smile on my face each time I get behind the wheel. I don't drive an escort because I can't afford better.....I CHOOSE to own one. My daily driver is a 2003 Mitsu Eclipse, and I also have a 97 F150. Yeah....so I'll try to save my pennies and get a "real" car some day... :x
