Lol, thats what I thought at first too. You will get used to it. Give it a month and ask yourself that same question. And no, drilling holes would sound ghettofied.

Replace your stock carpet padding under the trunk carpet and under the back seat with HEAVY household padding. That'* what I did with my Magnaflow setup before I added the resonator. It helped quite a bit.

Do you still have your stock resonator?

Drilling holes in your stocker would have sounded like ****. Not just ghettofied.

It sounds as though you don't have a resonator if your car is that loud.. but didn't the 94+ have them?

I also agree with haro, I don't see how resonated tips could do much, not to mention they probably wouldn't look as good as some nice stainless ones.

I haven't heard a Flowmaster yet that I like. They all have that tinny loud farting sound. they're even worse on a V-6 like ours.

Go back to stock.
