MASTER CYLINDER
BATTERY
ALTERNATOR
RADIATOR
NEW RADIO
NEW SPEAKERS
HORNS
SPARK PLUGS
THE REAL PISSER IS THAT I JUST GOT IN TO A WRECK WITH IT RUINED THE SIDE FENDER FRONT BUMPER AND TO SIDE LIGHTS THE GOOD THING IS MY COUSIN DOES AUTO COLLISION REPAIR 2,299 DOLLARS OF DAMAGE I PAID 5,000 FOR THE CAR

Modification?
Click the key to the left of the A key.
If you just cut the muffler off, it will sound cool at idle but it sounds like complete crap otherwise.

Can't help with your question, unfortunately. I prefer a quiet exhaust myself.

MOS..thanks for the image


the car would really sound bad.....i mean really bad....I would look into getting a Flowmaster F body Muffler either in the 80 series or the louder 40 series to satisfy your exhaust sound

Straight pipe will sound like ***, and you'll likely LOSE low-end torque and off the line performance.

a 40 series will be plenty loud...

Only caution I would give is if you do highway driving frequently, you'll feel that there is a reverberating drone all the time. Bascially...there is..

If I've learned anything recently, I've learned that the perfect exhaust tone is in the ear of the beholder. At least he'* using the super 40, which is more mellow than the std. 40 series.
