By putting a silencer on your performance exhaust, does it slow the car down?
People who get the Uber J-Spec JDM Touge Drift VTEC Type aRgh exhausts dont realize that they are not designed for street vehicles. They spend $900 on an exhaust and then greatly lower its functionality with a silencer. You are better off getting an Apex WS or some other street tuned exhaust system that will perform better than a race exhaust w/the silencer installed.
Most Race exhausts are tuned to maxemize top end power (not a broad powerband) - they usually also dont meet decible limit's (i.e. 90db in Cali). The silencer should only be used if you needed to drive your car to the track or something w/out getting a ticket for noise violations.
The silencer is a temporary band-aid, not a solution.
I wish cops would think about other things to do instead of pull ppl over for a loud exhaust that doesnt harm nobody... the damn harleys do though!
Depends on what kind of sound. If it's from a street or race car with a performance exhaust I don't mind. If it's a Harley or truck or something then no I hate it.
So you hate all loud noise in general?
in retrospect, the harley guys hate loud ass hondas. you can't please everybody. but you have to remember, the same douche bags cops that give you the ticket are the same douche bags that drive the harley after work.
Or they drive domestic rubbishs.
most of the ones in my area are middle aged men. a lot of pre-retirees. if they don't have a harley, they have some other obnoxious piece of shit.
