Default crappy muffler

i think my stock muffler is goin out on me. its not rusting out or ne thing. it just sounds very craptacular. it rattles when you first start to rev it. then sounds farty. sounds to me like a good excuse for a new performance muffler.but i cant afford one and i dont really want my car being that loud. dont get me wrong they sound good. but i dont think a four door family sedan should sound like that regardless of how much booty it can haul.

I use the Summit Turbo muffler myself. It can be a little raspy but I like it. At about 15.00 bucks US and 27.00 US shipped, it might be a worth while experiment to try.

It may be your cat that is rattling. Not the muffler. A new cat will fix that.

Note: Not a house cat.

Becareful when you instal the tabbyl not to strech the fittings to much. You don't want an exhaust leak!

true, and also this would be the only forum where the car gets some respect.

Once you get your car hooked up nice, it will get respect. Either that, or I let the car do the talking for me.

Not to many people I know have a car as nice as mine (and its damn old too)
