I have the whole system. I have the flomaster mid with the magnaflow rear. I like the sound, but do have one complaint. This was never an issue on my SE, but has become an issue with the R/T. There is some vibration of the rear end at low RPM's. I think that this is caused by the mounting bracket for the muffler on the right side. Probably could be fixed with some minor modification, but I have been lazy recently. I do highly reccommend the company. Everything was great! If you need more info let me know I am glad to help!

Would it be to loud with just the flowmaster mid?I didnt see a kit with both a flowmaster and magnaflows(I'm assuming you are talking about the muffs at the end of the pipe).Or did you order it that way.I'll have to look at your sig to see how it looks...Mines a black '01 ES.

Keep in mind I would be keeping the front resonators.I just don't want a rice sound...Just rumble at Idle and decent tone at speed.

Well the rice sound comes with an inline four. Your car will naturally sound different than that. I had ordered the setup with the Trubendz mufflers on their site, but those were out of stock so the company substituted the Magnaflows in for me. I don't think that the car would be too loud with one resonator and a Flowmaster mid. I personally could stand to have my car be a bit louder, but I did remove the front resonator. Here are some pics of my cars with the setup.

I have been thinking of going with TruBendz exhaust systems myself.
Anybody out there got a sound byte of a TruBendz duel-exhaust on a 3.5HO??

No, but I can tell you that the setup is much quieter on the R/T than it was on the SE. I am not sure why though because the setup is the exact same. Even though it is quieter the setup sounds much nicer on the R/T.

hey they got rid of one of there setups...they used to have a center and rear setup but i dont see it on the site anymore...Im personally thinking of gettin just the tubing kits and buying my on mufflers...but my question is this ....would the sound/performance be different if i get dual canisters as opposed to single canisters (and yes im gettin dual exhausts)...

I really think that it would be personal preference. You will not notice a power difference between the two mufflers shown. I would not know what the sound difference would be though. It might look a bit crowded if you go with two dual canister setups. How wide is the dual setup as opposed to the singls?

blurple...hey, they told me they will still do the set up they got rid of on their site. I was going to order that when I lost my job in May...I had spoken to Josh there at trubendz and he is a super nice guy and very helpful...he said they had taken it off their site but would still do whatever set-up someone wanted...I was gonna get the front resonator taken off and go with flowmaster mid and borlas at the bumper cover...for all stainless steel from the cat-to the mufflers, it would be about $550...or thats what he quoted me on april 27th...so email Josh at trubendz and he can tell u pricing and whats available...he was cool when I talked with him....

I'm looking for a nice 'throaty' rumble sound, sort-a-kind-a like Mustang/GTs, you know not TOO load or rice-rocket sounding. So what duel exhaust set-up would be best for both proformance and gas milage? Resonator or non-resonator?
