Modified stock exhaust?

Recommended Posts

Quick question guys n gals.
Has anyone heard of removing some baffles from the stock muffler?
I would be willing to do this for the purpose of adding more noise and not necessarily performance.
thanks

I have no clue if the stock exhaust mod has removable baffles. Willing to bet, the entire thing is its baffle.
 
Refer to this topic for some stock mods, I think the guy just drilled a few holes or something.  Unfortunately the youtube clip in the thread doesn't work.

I thought long and hard about moding the stock exhaust. I even picked up a spare to play with, pics here. In the end it was easier for me to just make my own.

Haha. Holy crap, I never saw that topic of yours. No wonder that thing is so quiet. Double baffle!

As always, thank you all for the great feedback and speedy responses.
I swear I did search first but nothing came up.

.....IMHO, don't waste your time. $400 bux gets you a M4....sounds and looks great and saves 9 lb's

I'd like to know how is your exhaust so far...pros & cons if any. Thanks:)

I can't think of any cons. the pro's are, looks good, sounds better. Any performance gains are small just as any other exhaust.

I know this thread is old, but I ran a 1 inche hole saw through two baffles/chambers of the OE muffler. Still quiet at cruise with a little bite on the gas.

Did this a few weeks ago with a hole saw - ended up being about a 3/4 inch hole.

It sounds much nicer at idle (no more moped sound). When you're accelerating the difference is pretty negligible though.

Ralph you are a little gem. Thanks for that . I always wondered how they had configured it. Useful to know if you are racing in a class that allows muffler removal but headers have to remain. The collector is actually not to bad inside to attach a tail pipe and can, if you strip the shell off.

Go forth and modify my son...go forth and modify...
