I don't think there are many options for what you want. Drill a hole in to the exhaust and make an exhaust leak?
I mean the stock catback is pretty quiet. The only way to make it louder would be to replace the cat or cut open the stock muffler, gut it. But that is kind of pointless unless you are just keeping the stock "look". I would just try to buy an axle-back. That way it is not "as loud".
Reduce back pressure and increase exhaust flow for greater peak power and a broader torque band. Each Legamax Exhaust utilizes a specific muffler design and shape along with the appropriate piping diameter to maintain low-end torque while maximizing high-end horsepower. All Legamax systems are...
Only problem with that, is you don't spend much more in getting a catback. So that is probably your best option.
I've been on a sound quest for 2 years now and what you're asking isn't possible. The stock exhaust is too quiet and restrictive and will qwell any sound changes a HFC or downpipe will offer. The downpipe, unless going open dump does very little for the overall exhaust note.
Not trying to plug companies but stock downpipe + ETS HFC and Corsa Catback was the recipe I found to meet my exact growl and performance balance needs.
What he said. It's just not really possible. Catback will be the closest thing to what you are looking for. If you don't want to make it too much louder, I wouldn't do much more exhaust mods besides that.
Here are some pics of a stock muffler modified to flow MUCH better with almost NO increase in noise. I like my car to look stock so I bought another stock muffler from MEAT EVO (thanks dude). I cut the whole top off and ended up removing one piece of pipe to basically allow it to flow...
Hey what's up EVO X Community. Need some opinions about the stock oem snorkel aka the piece before the oem air intake airbox.
If I cut the middle divider would they help with more air flowing into the intake or would it have a negative impact? I've seen aftermarket ones that carbon fiber that...
Hello EVO Community:
For folks that have this mini muffler. How loud is it during cold start with your catback? Did you notice a HUGE difference in volume dropping? If you could list what your setup is that would be great. If you also provide a video, that would be awesome.
I figured i'd share some pics of my $8000+ mistake. It happened in 5th gear. low RPM and high load. The Boost gauge hit 35psi and the car went lean according to the wideband. Cylinder 3 let go and put a hole in the front and back of the block and bent both intake valves. Also created a small...
