    if it's a can style muffler, those pretty much all sound the same, and all sound like ass.

    Heat wrap the ENTIRE thing. :eek:
    But yea, can style exhaust 99% of the time will have that raspy sound. Theres not much you can do other than putting an insert in the can.

    IMO thats one of the best setups. Upgraded piping, high flow cat (if any) or at least a reonator, and OEM style muffler.

    Same gains, deeper note you can actually live with. And its stealthy too!

    You could just get a high flow cat, like a magnaflow or something. It might be an exhaust leak.

    I guess just go over every joint and also look for places where it may rub on something.

    Is it an ebay test pipe? If so its going to leak. I've had my fair share of hassles with those things.
