What a difference! It's like uncorking a monster. Minor popping, but it's tolerable. A lot cheaper than a cat-back, but prolly zero performance gain. Anyway, makes it tough to drive without the SEG!:D

OK... I decided to drop my (2) 20lb mufflers to see what the sound would be like. All I thought was my neighbors would kill me if my car was always that loud... Holy [email protected]

Reasons I would not do this:

1.) Just too loud. It sounds good for a minute but then it gets old fast.
2.) There is a definate drone sound.
3.) Poppong everytime I shift would drive me nuts.

I think I will invest in a nice catback system if anything.

My mufflers are back on now ( all 40lbs. of them) until I decide what I want to do.

For those of you with muffler delete... more power to you :cheers

Droning is always associated with mufflers.
Er, that's not true. I had a Loudmouth on my Firehawk and there was a drone at 1800-2000 rpm. The Loudmouth has no mufflers.

What'cha get? I've been eying the Corsa Sport. I'll be getting Long Tubes latter this year, and depending on how that sounds without the mufflers, I may or may not get'em.

I was going to remove my mufflers, but I don't think I want the car all that loud. I had the resonator removed when I first got the car.

Maybe one day I might get a shifter. Not a priority at the moment though. I've read about lots of problems with the B&M Ripper. I'll probably go with the GMM.

Was there a sound difference with the resonator removed??

Did you put on a "X" pipe??

Please elaborate.

does dropping the mufflers make it sound like a muscle car should or is it just loud?
define "like a muscle car" please?

The way LSX engines are designed, it'll never sound like a 454 chevelle, no matter what you do to it. well, short of a cam.

If you take the mufflers off, it won't sound that great, very raspy.

I haven't had much of a problem with the popping sound on decel. I found if I just barely touch the gas pedal, the popping smooths right out. Personally, I think it brings out the "mean" in the exhaust.. That said, I haven't heard a GTO with a good non-stock exhaust in person. The only drone I have is the rear end whine... is that a warranty issue?
