it would make the car very loud its like having no muffleron the car you can use it for racing but not for street use and you have to use a muffler when you get your car inspection it the law and you dont want to get pulled over by the cops

thanks robert

Plus, the computers in our cars figure on some sort of muffler being there. I believe it would actually hurt performance for use.

But I could be way off....

Yea that would be ungodly loud and I really dont think the sound would be very nice from at least from our engines anyway.

It'* be loud, but it'd sound like ****.

I've run my engine with just headers, and when the engine was running kinda shitty, it sounded REAL nice. But now that I have her tuned up and everything working properly, she just sounds like a ricer with just headers. It sucks.. badly. Trust me, you won't want that. It isn't that loud, anyways.. like I mean it won't hurt your ears or anything, but as long as you keep the RPMs low in town, you could probably get away with it. But I wouldn't do it. Like MOS Said, it'd decrease performance, because of a loss of backpressure.

Not worth it. Leave it to the guys with 400ci engines, moving 4x more air than we are.

dude, trust me, it will sound terrible. i ran around w/ an open exhaust. It sounds cool at idle but as soon as you give it gas it sounds like garbage.

Idle is garbage on my car..

it sucks, it sounded so cool when I initially fired her up [Don can agree with me, he heard it!], but now it sounds so shitty. Guess the loose rockers really made a difference in the beast.

Like I said, things like that are great on cars that move a lot of air [larger displacment engines], but for our cars, it isn't quite as cool.

Notice that it is not mandrel bent. A good performance mufler would out flow it and sound better.
