I like anyone who likes Nas and can properly quote his lyrics. You also happen to have an awesome LS400.

I'm not a huge fan of quad exhausts anymore, but when I was, I wanted something like the Audi S8:

I personally think the (my mods on my) LS400 is not aggressive enough to have quad exhausts, but if you had a ***** to the wall LS400, then maybe.

I think quad exhaust gives it an extra notch on the sporty belt. A little more V8 sound and the 18's. It's there but mostly understated, and with a wide car/back end I think it fills up a bit better with 2 tips on each side. It's not like I'm adding these tips.

I think single tips on each side, Quad is such overkill, +1 for the borla oval tips

I am looking at getting two of these magnaflow mufflers for my car.
Do yall think they would fit into the stock cavity?

The demensions are:

Inlet/Outlet Size: 2.25in./3in.x3.75in.
Body Shape: 5in.x8in. Oval
Core Size: Dual 2in.
Body Length: 14in.

Also, has anybody used magnaflow mufflers and if so how are they?

they'll fit the cavity but wont fit the cutouts on the bumper so you'll need to take a dremel to it.

Almost pulled the trigger on that same model until I finally found some tips that I like. Can't go wrong with Magnaflows IMHO. Post pics if you decide to go with those.

yea no prob,

Pure,
the only thing I'am worried about is that the tie down anchors near the exhaust hanger will get in the way of the dual tip/muffler combo. do you thing there will be an issue with that
