for people who have custom exhaust

what i wanted to ask is how loud is your car with the resonator removed? i installed a magnaflow muffler with 2 1/4 piping and no resonator and it sounds really nice but its more louder than i expected. if i put back the resonator how quiet will it get?

My set-up is actually pretty subtle.......arospeed bomb series muffler w/ 2.25" piping. It is even more quiet (from the inside) after I dampened.

If I may ask what may be a stupid question...but why not get a cat-back exhaust, like a DC, Greddy or Magnaflow ?

How much do you actually save when you do a custom exhaust ? Is it worth it over a full cat back system ?

If you look at the price difference it makes a huge difference, why pay 700 dollars when you can pay 250, i know a guy who is going to get me dual exhaust with 2, 250 dollar mufflers with piping and everything for 500$

Wow, that much huh ? See, I don't know because I am getting a cat-back...
I didn't know you could get a custom for that cheap !! Are they louder though.....?

And will you have enough back pressure with the dual....??

Joe, if you put the original resonator back, it will be pretty quiet, put a Magnapack resonator in (its what we use in our catback systems) it will tone it dow, put not totally kill the sound...What part# Magnaflow muffler did you get????

It will be pretty much like a normal exhaust system, just a different sound, and it looks better. As far as back pressure goes it is no worse or better. No exhaust on a naturally aspirated car is going to give a very noticable gain. If you add a turbo on the other hand there will be a much better gain.

Joe....go to your nearest muffler shop, ask them for Magnaflow part number 14415(2.25" SS resonator), you should be able to get it for less than $100 installed.........

I paid $160 for a muffler w/ silencer, and 80 for 2.25" pipeing run from the cat back. I thought that was a good deal!

he didn't ask you what exhaust you have. he wanted to know if your car was loud once the resonator was removed[IMG]i/expressions/moon.gif[/IMG]
anyway, joe, i have the apex'i N1 with 2.5" pipes. the size of the pipes alone without the resonator made the exhaust sound pretty loud but still low and deep. if you get the 2.25", it should sound ok. it all depends on your volume preference

duals huh? hmmm i've heard that duals actually decrease performance, our engine's don't actually need duals. So you'd probably be better off just getting a dummy pipe if you like the look of duals. BTW, a Magnaflow cat back can be had for like 300 can't it?

If it des hinder peformance it won't be much. In my opinion it is extremely stupid to buy a 250 dollar muffler that you are not going to use. It is dumb.
