unnnnnnnnhhhhhhhhhh ummmmmmm wellllll yeah, kinda sorta. It seems like your looking for a cheap alternative. It would appear you want the sound but not the price, sign of a frugal person. So do this, cut off your stock mufflers and clamp some turndowns on them. Cost ya about $10 and an afternoon of labor. NICE sound...

:agree Most people ask me if I have LoudMouth mufflers. I say, "what mufflers?"

Find a good welder/ exhaust shop loop off the mufflers and replace w/ 3" stainless.

BUT before you do this, unbolt the mufflers (flanges behind the mufflers, hangers infron of the mufflers) and take them off to make sure you like the sound first.

Check out my gallery for picts.

I keep staring at this pic wondering what could be done to increase performance, flow and sound and get away from that leap frog design in the exhaust.

Hmmmmmmmmm

One things for sure, get rid of those dang resonators!! Lose the mufflers and go with straight pipes....

*still thinking*

I recommend saving the money of mufflers and just getting straight pipes put in there. If it sounds crappy, you still have your stock mufflers to put back on.

Happy motoring (albeit loudly)

do explain about trusting your muffler shop and hell breaking loose. How does the car sound?


As for the resonators, if you replace them with a straight pipe, your exhaust gets 50% louder, and deeper.
