Garage
Fart Cans

I'm thinking of removing my duel duels, and installing duel duel fart cans. 4 fart cans in the back would be like totally RAD, eh?

Hey man,

xcommuter started an excellent thread last week. It's called "GTO Exhaust Database for Sounds." On it you'll find a post w/ an '04 Goat w/ the muffs cut out. Sounds nice. Check it out.

i think it would be so loud you would be a magnet to local law enforcement, and the drone on the highway would make riding in your car uncomfortable.

on the other hand the car would sound like Jr. on the back straight of Talledega

Had mine removed last Friday and replaced with a straight second of pipe on each side. It sounds awesome. It's not too loud, and I haven't found to be a drone on the highway or attract police. The resinator box is still on, I think that gives it a nice sound and keeps it legally quiet (looks like a muffler)

not too loud holy exhaust note batman.

after i put the cam package in, i HAD to remove resonators, to get gases out so the car would run. (or get headers, which I'll do in immed. future)

anyway, my car's loud as hell now. i can't imagine just resonators and no mufflers.

here, it would only be a matter of time before being ticketed for excessive noise.

i had state troopers roll down there window and look at me strange, just last week. luckily i was turning and they went straight.

glad it works for you.

Are you cutting the tips off the stock mufflers and welding them back on the straight pipe? Or, are you putting on new tips?
