    Hows it going? last night my pos muffler fell of my car lol long story....anyways i bought the stock replacement muffler today and put it on....now its sounds like complete ass when driving. I have the D15b2 turd and it has a header into a pipe to the muffler no cat, no resonator nothing....could that be the reason why it sounds that way? or is it cause its just a stock muffler? Also does it matter that my muffler goes inside the pipe and not outside? Should i buy the little piece that goes from 2 1/4 - 2 inches. my old muffler went around the pipe. Is that how it should be or does it really matter?

    Thanks!

    definitely caused from no cat.. a resonator will get rid of raspyness .. but w/ no cat, its gonna sound like shit regardless

    nope.. get a CAT and resonator and you'll sound almost completely stock

    I'd recommend a whole new exhaust anyway. A header into a stock exhaust is like a bottleneck. I say just have the muffler shop weld you up a new exhaust with slightly bigger piping.
