    Here is my ZX2 with a Borla muffler and stock piping. Really love the sound of it. Not loud, but can still hear it.

    Here is a video clip of meet I attended in Little Rock, AR. All of it is of us driving around, but you can hear the car as I drive.

    After extensive testing that Pacesetter mufflers are Shit. It is really really raspy. Sounds like someone threw a hand full of pennies in my muffler. I think the sound is due to poor quality of baffling. Its sounds great at certain rpms (or levels of vibration in the exhasut) but gets really raspy as i stated above.

    I have a quick fix, when i wash my car I simply fill my muffler with water and and rev, makes it louder without the rasp.

    I am considering useing some re-bar to bend some of the baffling before I replace the muffler with either a 40 series, or some I have come to the conclusion type of magnaflow.

    It sounds like some of the baffling is loose, but after about an hour of driving the rasp dissappears....

    well gentlemen, this weekend i took the plunge. and i finally got the exhaust redone. the stock one from 1995 was rotting out, and forced me to get it all redone. so i ordered some parts: flowmaster 40-series deltaflow muffler, magnaflow cat, and pacesetter headers. a bit of a hp gain, but a definite sound difference. i havem't yet decided if i'm truly happy with the sound, but it idles rather quietly, which i like. need a few more weeks to break things in.

    p.s. when you get the pacesetters, pay the extra $$$ for the thicker coating. that shit began peeling by the time i got the scort home (3 miles away from the shop).

    Ok you need to post a sound clip ASAP, I would really like to hear what it sounds like with a 40 series. I am going to replace my "muffler" in the next week or two so i need to make a choice real soon...

    i just resently repipded my 323. i did the bp swap in it a few months back and it needed a new exhaust bad! i did a full 2.25" mandreal bend set-up from the header back. im running a stock 95/96 escort gt header. no cat and no flex pipe. i have solid motor mounts. so the flex is not an issue. i have one 12" resinator back by my passenger seats just before it turd to clear the gas tank. then a Raptor turbo muffler from the local parts store. i used alot of stuff i had just laying around and from old projects. total cost was about 100 bucks in supplies. then i paid my welder 60 bucks. its a little raspy underload and wot for the mid range rpms. but at freeway speeds its almost like stock. i can talk with anyone at pretty much regular volume. if i had a cat it would be basically stock just bigger pipe and nicer flow.

    First, capture the sound with something like a digital camera that can take video or an mp3 player with a mic.
    Then post the clip on www.putfile.com

    or just make a quick video, get someone to tape it for you so you can rev it up. Make sure you rev it up though, I cant stand it when people post clips of their idle....
