Thumbs up Super 44 Review

Hey guys, just figured i'd throw some input in here...

So i've got an 02 Fx4 and my first mod was to replace the rusted out stock muffler and pipes (which sounded quite badass to be honest) with a Super 44 cat back setup.

i just drove it back from the shop and initially i had wanted to have them bend the pipes for me and install it myself but for whatever reason they didn't like that so they did the entire thing. cost me 300 bucks flat for the everything including labor and tax. pretty good if you ask me.

anywho, my first impression was that it was actually quieter than my stock rusted and pin-holed exhaust but the quality of the sound was much better. i couldn't tell anything about the "HP and torque" improvement haha but it sounds nice now. not super loud or overly aggresive by any means as the website stated but i've also heard that these mufflers require a sort of break in period to get their sound.

there ya go

Nice short write up. Wait a week of daily driving...you'll love it even more. I love my 44 as well....quietish in the cab, nice and loudish and just plain old beef sounding from the outside. Plus...having a manual makes it that much mo betta! lol.

Of course it's quieter in the cab....you had holes in the exhaust underneeth the cab!!


It will get better tone and loudness after it's burn't away the gunk from production and puts on a layer of gunk from the engine. lol. You're probably smelling a burning smell right now right? That'll last for a couple weeks of DD driving.

You're right....you're happy with it now and it's only going to get better.

Does it tend to drone?

and it's louder because it has less pipe to go through before the sound gets out, and the sound gets out closer to the cab.
