    Someone cut the resonator out of my ex, straight piped it and then hacked a fart can muffler onto it.:mad:

    With the CAI that is on there and that megaphone muffler I want to shoot myself sometimes.

    If I straight pipe it from the axle will it be quieter then the fart can?

    Suggestions?

    You could put a silencer on it too, but it's somewhat restrictive. Kind of like having a second cat.

    Yeah. I want to restrict air flow as little as possible without making a lot of noise.

    Someone riced this car before I got it so I have to either do a full cat back, or chill and decide if I want to turbo the d. Which of course would mean 2 1/2" to 3" piping.

    Thanks for the advice guys.

    Mufflers typically have some type of resonating material inside them, even the ricey ones like yours. Eliminating the muffler in favor of a straight pipe will most likely make the car louder rather then quieter. What type of muffler is it? Is it the round, canister style, or is it an oval-shaped one?

    Switching to an oval-shaped muffler might help quiet it down a little bit. The oval-shaped ones are larger and therefore have more resonating material. If you don't want to spend the money on a whole new cat-back at the moment, I'd probably just buy a cheap resonator and a cheap oval-shaped muffler for now...
