Spintech or Dynomax VT for my 95 wagon

I need to take my car to the exhaust shop. I figured I would replace the 10 year old 2.5 inch summit turbos with some new mufflers.

What do you suggest. I want the thing to sound mean when I get into it
Right now, The car is try-y's into a 2.5 catback with summit turbos because I had like five bucks to my name when I put exhaust on this.

I've seen that Dynomax VT are the new greatness but what about the previous spintech mufflers that everyone was buying back in 2004 to 2010?

Have Fun.

Dynomax will be closer to the Turbos, straight through, but probably much louder when you get on it. If you want aggressive and loud all the time, go Spintech.

For what it is worth, I have VT's on mine and they're anything but quiet when you plant your foot. They have a nice sound and they're cheaper than Spintechs. Plus, the Spins drone like a mofo.

The Spintechs will be significantly louder than the Summit Turbos.

If you want to remain at least 'somewhat' civil with your exhaust note, get the DynoMax VTs or the DynoMax Ultra-Flos (still a damn good muffler, BTW).....

IMHO, of course.

I've got the spintech mufflers on a Cat-Back system from Clear Image, and I was disappointed when I first fired it up. It's WAY quieter that what I would have liked.

Maybe they have changed since I bought my system in 12/08, but I'd never use them again for what I want to hear at the tailpipe, or in the Driver's seat for that matter.

I am also looking for more aggressive exhaust note for my car, and I am leaning more Spintech wise. Right now I have pypes street pro muffler.

What did you specify for your car?

There's more than one configuration of cat back from Clear Image: High Performance Exhaust Systems - Impala SS Cat-back Exhaust Systems

Dan offers cat backs in two pipe diameters and at least three different SpinTech mufflers to choose from, plus regular or resonated tips.

I thought I'd post a follow-up to my post in this thread. I installed Dan's Tri-Y headers & High low catalytic converters in December, and the sound is a lot better.

It's not as loud as Headers thru 2.5" pipe with turbo mufflers on my '74 Blazer, but it's much better now.
